I’m here today with something different! I love creating everything and anything! I saw these gorgeous glitter papers, and knew they had to be used in an imaginative way! I was so excited when I dear friend asked for Disney inspired wall hangings for her home. I had the perfect use for these glitter papers!
I started off by getting the backgrounds, or backdrops, done so they had plenty of time to dry. I used Vicki Boutins’ Silver glaze and Prism Glaze , mixed with some water, and than splattered this canvas with it. I wanted a watercolor feel. I’ve seen similar images going around, and thought I would give it a try. you never know what you can do, until you try. While that way drying, I cut out the Castle image in Cougar White Cardstock, I used acrylic paint in 3 different shades of blue, one metallic, and splattered it all over. I poured small puddles and using a stray blew into the center of it created larger “splatters”. After attaching it to the canvas, in just a few places, made the splatters go onto the canvas. Once dried, using a black pen, outlined a few areas to make the castle a little more defined.
For the next canvas, I used the same splatter technique on the top using water and Vicki Boutin Art Crayons. I used red, orange and a small amount of pick for a red/corally look. The bottom, I wanted texture. I used a few different techniques for this. I uses some acrylic paint so I still had the same watercolor/splatter theme going, but then I used some Whipped Spackle with the acrylic paint, through a wave stencil. Once that dried, I cut out some waves, used some Distress Oxide ink to color them, I also did that on the canvas, to the wave shape into some of the white areas. I sprayed them all with water, once dried, I used Foam Adhesive Strips and attached the waves.
The lovely Glitter Paper. I used POW! Silver Glitter and POW! Caramel Gold Glitter papers, to cut out the main focus of these projects, Cinderella and Ariel. The Silhouette cuts SO nice with these papers, no tearing or ripping. While these cut I went through my stash and pulled out various things that would go well with them. Sequins, Nuvo drops, Epoxy Flair, an acrylic “glass slipper”, some shells, and other items to dress these up.
I hope you love these as much as I loved creating them! The glitter paper was perfect for these! I hope I’ve inspired you to try the glitter paper! I’d love to see, please share below!
