Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Glitter Paint Embellishments

Hello crafters! Thanks for stopping by today for my newest Studio Monday video! This week I wanted to share a technique I am calling “glitter paint embellishments”. If you love glitter without the extreme mess, this post is for you!

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

I’ll be making use of Hero Art’s Sparkle embossing powder for the glitter. Since the glitter is in the embossing powder, you eliminate the mess of loose glitter. While I love the look of loose glitters, sometimes I want something more simpler, and this is where embossing powder glitter shines!

But I’m going to be stepping up the glitter embossing powder and pair it with Dina Wakley heavy body acrylic paints. By pairing the two together I can create a faux enamel effect that looks fabulous. It’s also extremely easy and doesn’t require any dry time… how cool is that?????

You can see the fabulous dimension and glitter you get with this technique…

The globe image you see in all these cards – plus the sentiments – are from another one of my favorite Hero Arts products. This is the You Are Loved stamp set; a collection of wonderful and uplifting sentiments of love and encouragement. Since getting this set when it first was released a few months ago, I’ve wanted to use the little globe. This card turned out to be a perfect use of the image, along with some of the hearts also included in the set.

As you can see, I ended up with a total of four cards because they were so fun and so easy to make! I hope you will be checking out the video below to see the technique in action! Thanks for stoping by and spending time with me today… be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new video tutorial from me!
