Adding Glitter to Acetate | Tutorial

Hi there!

Laura here sharing a fun, glittery technique with you today! There are a lot of really great acetate accents, embellishments and "papers" on the market right now that can be incorporated onto a crafty project.  Some have some colour and others are black and clear.  I recently played with this one from Bella Blvd.

And added some glitter to it to make it coordinate with my layout.

I sort of strategically added the glitter to "random" hearts in the design.

This is the process that I used, it is super easy, dries quickly and the glitter doesn't flake off easily when it is complete.

Working on the back of the sheet, I started with a glue pen, adding the adhesive to a few hearts at a time in one area of the page.

It is a little hard to see in this photo, but I only added the adhesive to the very centre heart int the cluster.

Next I sprinkled on the glitter.

Tap off the excess, onto a clean piece of scrap paper, you can re-use it later.

This is a front view.  Adding the glitter to the back really helps cut down on the glitter being rubbed off of your page and making a mess in your album.

After glittering my sheet, I added it to my base page by hiding the adhesive behind my page elements and then I added a couple of decorative stitching.

Thanks for visiting!
