Sparkles make me happy. Guess it's the girlie-girl in me. I recently got some wonderful craft items from Craft Project Ideas and got excited over the glitter, because let's face it... as a boy mom I'm usually not buying or crafting with glitter. But I knew right away that I wanted to create some easy art for the new half bath.
Materials needed for this sparkly DIY:
paper (I used watercolor for the texture and the weight)
Step 1: pour glue into bowl
My idea was to make brush strokes with glue and then add glitter, but I didn't know if it would work so I did a test run...
(it worked! wish i hadn't added the pink because i like the look of the gold, white and black strokes)
Step 2: dip brush into glue and create desired stroke on paper
Step 3: Add glitter - completely cover glue area, in other words go glitter crazy
Step 6: frame, if you so desire
I absolutely love how it turned out. A bit of caution for us impatient crafters - allow glue to fully dry and shake access glitter off vigorously. I am going to have to open the frame back up and do some touch-ups. (Patience isn't always my strong suit.) This project turned out so well, I can't wait to make more glitter art. Might make some great gifts too.
