Glitter!

I am just sharing some layouts from an article I did on using glitter on your scrapbook pages for issue 65 of the Scrapbook Magazine.  These were all done using glitter and glue applicators from Glitter Perfect which makes detailed glitter application really easy!  I even have one of the layouts really small on the cover, on the last one it was only my hand from one of the step by step photos lol!  The other little layout next to mine is another member from the Bo Bunny design team Mireille!


These were all done using Bo Bunny Country Garden.  For this first layout of my Mom and Dad I edged the photos with glitter...


 I also edged some of the petals and stamens with glitter.


 Lastly I covered some chipboard butterflies, dragonflies and some wooden words in glitter.


 I love this photo of my grandparents that I used on the next layout!

 To do the glittered title I printed my word out on a piece of cardstock in a light grey then used a superfine nozzle to apply the glue before adding the glitter

 I also added glitter to paint to give more texture to my bricks.
 

 This last layout is me and Paul when Kieran was only about a year old and we were still living in South Africa (hence the sunshine!)  The giant cat was my cat and his name was Skunk, both his parents were actually Siamese cats but he came out black and we had to have him!  We had another snow white cat Al who is not in the photo, I really need to scrapbook them sometime as they were definitely our first babies! :)
 
 I used the glitter to make a frame for my photo using double sided tape.  I started by cutting a frame from cardstock and then covering in double sided tape.  I then used an edge punch on some strips of cardstock and stuck them onto the frame before covering it in glitter and making sure it was all pressed down.  Once that was done I removed the punched strips and covered the rest of the frame in a contrasting glitter.
I also highlighted parts of the pages like the butterflies with glitter.

Have you seen all of the new Bo Bunny releases?  I am so excited, especially for the Misc. Me stuff and the stamps...well I am just in seventh heaven, I just LOVE stamps and background/texture stamps are my favourite!  There are still a few hours left to leave some comments on the Bo Bunny Blog for a chance to win some of the gorgeous new lines!
