Sparkly Thursday #2- Glitter

I think most of us started our sparkly journey with glitter. I know many people don't like to use glitter as they feel it's too messy but it's still one of my favorites, although I tend to grab stickles more these days.
Not much to really show about glitter but a Sparkly Thursday couldn't be complete without it.

Here's just a few things I thought of to share about wonderful glitter:
  • it comes in so many colors
  • lots of different sizes, there are super tiny crystal glitter all the way to big chunky glitter so it depends on the look you want
  • before you apply your glue, rub either an anti-static cloth over your paper or a dryer sheet to remove the static electricity so the glitter doesn't stray far.
  • use a glitter clean up cloth for easier clean up
  • one lesson I learned the hard way---don't have any fans on..LOL!
  • use a quickie glue pen to get small areas and to use different colors in small areas
  • there are lots of options of glitter for snow....makes a gorgeous effect 
Thanks for stopping by for Sparkly Thursday! Stop by next Thursday for glitter pens!!

I don't have a card right this second to share with you, got carried away looking at blogs and cutting new rubber.  I'll have a new creation soon!
Have a sparkly day!

Thanks for another great Sparkly Thursday, Danni. I had to smile about not having a fan on when using glitter. I learned that one the hard way.

Great tips...now if I could just keep the glitter from landing on my husband's face! He goes to work, and he has a lot of explaining to do!! LOL!

Thanks for the tips!!! One other thing that I learned (the hard way) is that you can't use Stickles on Digi images..they make the image turn yellow and bleed...not good to find out after you've spent two hours coloring your image! Ahhh Bummer! So since I use so many Digi now days, I've gone back to using conventional glitter...now we all sparkle again..even the cat! :)
Hugs,
Lisa
