  1. Wow, what a fabulous idea! I don't use glitter that often, but when I do I have always just used one colour at a time. A rainbow effect - I never think of these things - it's a good thing we have these instructional videos. Thank you for sharing them.

  2. Oh I love glitter, well sparkly things and as I can't afford things like diamonds glitter is a fab second. I use it in cards of course to add extra sparkle , but also in shaker cards and love it on acetate and medallion stamps. I've even used it on summer shoes but they aren't good in the wet. The best bit though is when you use glitter it gets everywhere and no matter how careful you are it gets in the air and I love it when hubby and son have a bit of extra sparkle on their faces and don't realise it just makes me smile to myself. Thanks for sharing Julye

  24. I Loved that video and I LOVE glitter! As a matter of fact, I have been called the "Glitter Queen" for a long time! HA!

    I love the Art Institute line...simply Fabulous! I always look for ways to incorporate glitter, whenever possible. Even if it is adding clear to a project for "a little shimmer", then I do.

    I will keep my fingers crossed. I absolutely Love this set!

  28. Glitter is so much fun to use on creations. I love the way she colored the beautiful butterfly with glitter. I'll definately be giving that a try.

    My fave this to do with glitter is to glitter the edges of flowers.

    Blessings,

  31. Wow! What a great line of glitters! I am all about glitter and bling and just find this line very beautiful. I also notice that Art Institute's adhesive seems to be quite easy to apply, even on an intricate design, which is not always the case with other glitter adhesives out there. Thanks for sharing the video!
