All that glitters…..

So I don’t know if you had a chance to read earlier, but my challenge over at CKC was to change the colour on something. I was so happy with the way some of these items turned out, I decided to do some more. I dug out my glitter and a whole bunch of naked chipboard, sat down and started glittering! It was fun actually, and the evening zipped by. Here’s a couple of pics for you.

Here is my table with all my glittered pieces all over the place.

Then here are some shots of how the chipboard turned out. I used several different types of glitter, ranging from superfine, to chunky. I used the same glue on everything.

Then I tried a couple of different kinds. The one on the left is a red white chunky glitter and the one on the right is a red, superfine glitter.

You can really see the difference here in the different glitters.

Then I tried this glitter, which I just love! It is so pretty. Sorry about the blurry photo.

how will these turn out?

I had also bought some neon glitter, so I tried that as well. Here is the yellow I used on some flowers. Its very fine, almost a dust, so not quite as thick as the other types.

So those turned out pretty good. I do have more, I didn’t take a picture of everything, you get the idea. I think I am also going to paint and mist one evening on my chipboard as well. I am far more likely to use a little red glitter heart, or yellow flowers on a layout than I am a piece of naked chipboard. I’ve had this stuff for years, time to do something with it!
