Shabby Goes Glam

It’s the new year and I’ve been busy thinking of some of my crafting goals for 2011.

One of them is to have more fun. To create projects just for the sheer joy of creating.

I’m also hoping to find time for more challenges.  Cath’s Moxie Fab Glitter is Glam challenge has been catching my eye every time I stop by MFW for a visit. It’s been teasing me. Perhaps tormenting me a little as well as I really wanted to play along. That’s why today, I’ve set aside my to do list for an hour and just had fun.

Sweet Glitter Wish

The Sweetness line by Pink Paislee is so stunning, I just can’t get tired of it. The stunning prints also work perfectly for my favorite simple glitter technique. Simply cover a piece of patterned paper with a double-sided dry adhesive sheet, sprinkle on a transparent glitter and then burnish. Burnishing the glitter into the adhesive with a bone folder or other item will keep the glitter in place and give you a beautiful finish.

I couldn’t just stop at one glitter item once I got going. You can see in the above photo that I’ve used a beautiful glitter cardstock by Coredinations for the card base. Even the Prima flower has glitter on it.

Supplies: glitter cardstock by Coredinations, Sweetness 6×6 paper pad by Pink Paislee, crystal trinket pins & Word Charm by Maya Road, Twine, Symphony Flower Blend flower by Prima, white cardstock by Bazzill, sewing machine, transparent microfineglitter by Art Institute, Be Creative Adhesive

Happy creating!
