Dreamweaver Stencils & Art Institute Glitter are Making a *SPARKLY* June!

Dreamweaver-Stencils61412

The Double Glitter Technique is the very first stenciling technique that I attempted.  I was immediately in love and haven’t stopped using glitter since.

In May, Dreamweaver Stencils released 11 new stencils and Nouveau Wisteria (LL3026) was one of them. Congratulations (LS22) is an older stencil, but is versatile.  I use is all the time. 

The supplies used to achieve this technique are:

Nouveau Wisteria Stencil LL3026

Congratulations LS22

Double Sided Mounting Paper

Glitter

Hawaiian Coconut Soap

Dreamweaver Stencil

1) Apply soap to the back of your stencil. The stencil is going to be placed on Double Sided Mounting Paper and the soap will prevent the stencil from sticking to the paper. Apply a generous amount of soap.  I like to add just a bit more when I think I have applied enough.

2) Place stencil, soap side onto the Double Sided Mounting Paper.  Save the protective backing from the paper, to press onto the top of your stencil to ensure that is properly adhered.

3) Apply glitter in desired areas, with desired colors.  Again, use the backing from the Double Sided Mounting Paper to press onto the top of the glitter and stencil to adhere as much glitter as you can.  Use a Glitter Magnet or Swiffer Duster to pick up excess bits of glitter from your project.  This is an important step.  The tiny bits of glitter will sit on top of the project or pile into the small crevices of the stencil, when the stencil is removed, the bits of glitter will fly to undesired area’s on the exposed Double Sided Mounting Paper.

4) Remove stencil from Double Sided Mounting Paper and sprinkle a white or transparent glitter on the rest of the exposed, adhesive area of the paper.

If you’re interested in a PDF version of the Double Glitter Technique, please leave me you’re email address and I would be happy to email the step by step directions to you.
