A little bit of glitter...

Morning crafters.

It's Wednesday - they come round really rather quickly don't they! And I've another show for you today. This time I've selected some beautiful stencils from dreamweaver, a company I've admired for many years now. I've played with quite a few techniques, so hopefully in today's show I'll manage to share those with you.

The first one is glitter overload. I was utterly covered in the stuff.

First, cut a pice of double sided adhesive sheet down so it's just bigger than your stencil, and stick it to a piece of card:

Next take your anti static bag (we'll have these on the show) and dust over the stencil

This helps you lift the stencil from the adhesive.

Next, remove the second protective sheet on the adhesive paper and place your stencil down:

Use the protective sheet to help secure the stencil in place. Make sure you use the side which will not stick to the adhesive - which is the slippy side

Now sprinkle your colours of glitter, building up your picture :

Remove the stencil when you have completely covered the image, and then fill in the remaining adhesive with another colour - I went for the crystal. Look how effective that it! 

You don't need to stick to glitter, you could use mica, gilding flakes; flower soft etc etc. I think this is one I should leave to the end demo today - or else....every demo will end up glittery. Let's see if I remember that thought!

Thanks Leoni this looks great. I can't wait to see just how much glitter goes on the card and hopefully not too much on you. Enjoy playing, it's good to see you happy. X

Hi Leonie. This looks so pretty - look forward to your demos today. On a workshop I went on when I first started crafting, I remember doing this with a piece of net curtaining. Glad you had one show with John yesterday as you make a great pair to watch.
