Dreamweaver Stencils & Art Institute Glitter!! A Double Glitter Technique Video

AND

ARE TEAMING UP THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING CREATIVE COLLABORATION MIXING DREAMWEAVER STENCILS AND ART GLITTER. COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE...WE PROMISE IT WILL BE A SPARKLING ONE!


This week, I also created a video using the Double Glitter Technique.  I am a visual learner, so I hope the video will make it easier for you to understand this easy technique.



Double Glitter Step by Step Instructions

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.

I love using this technique. I recently moved away from my favorite scrapbooking/card making store where I could find the double sided mounting paper. I can't find any where I currently live. Does anyone know where I can find the double sided mounting paper?
