As we officially head into the holiday season, the Dream Team are challenging all of our followers to be especially "Thankful and Thoughtful" during the month of November. We hope that you will link your creations with this theme in mind on the Dream It Up! blog using the Inlinkz tool. Our "thanks" to you is providing you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice, and a bonus stencil of our choosing could be yours for using Dreamweaver product(s) in your artwork.
|Cornucopia LL529 done with the double glitter technique|
When I do double glitter with something this detailed I always work from the outside toward the center of the design. It is a bit time consuming, but most painting is, and of course I just consider this painting with glitter. If you would like to see me doing a video of the process watch HERE. Then I placed the two larger oval dies from the set of three ovals on the glittered piece, taped it in place and cut this through the embossing machine. Then I used foam mounting tape and cut thin strips to put the larger oval in first and then popped up the smaller inner oval by doing two layers of the foam tape on top of each other. Yes...it is a bit hard to tell that the ovals are popped up. If you are interested in more details on how to do double glitter email me and I will send you the instructions in a pdf format. firstname.lastname@example.org
