MIX16 - Glitter Under Glass (5/17/13)
1 Attachment(s)
Challenge Title: Glitter Under Glass
Hostess: dini (Dina K)
Keyword: MIX16


Ready for a new Mix-Ability challenge?!! We hope you're having fun with these! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

I'm filling in for sweet Trudy today - she's recovering from surgery, so let's make this week's gallery sparkle to cheer her up!
She wants to see you create the effect of glitter under glass on your mixed media project.

Here are a few suggestions for doing this:

  • add glitter glue or Stickles to your project
  • use glittery paint, a glitter pen, or adhere glitter to your project, then cover it with a clear glossy medium such as Diamond Glaze, Glossy Accents, Crystal Lacquer, etc.

If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX16) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh!

Thanks for the challenge, Dina...I never even thought of this as mixed media when I made these cards! LOL!
Here are my two cards:
Glittery Popsicle
Glittery Ice Cream

Not a big fan of glitter due to its propensity to go EVERYWHERE!...BUT your technique kept it in place. Thanks.

Trudy, I hope you're feeling much better! This was a great challenge, especially because glitter and I are not friends!

Fun challenge that was perfect for my late night stamping for a shower I leave for in the morning-I'll be back later to comment on the gallery. In the meantime here are my cards: Rebecca's Shower and Rebecca's Wedding

Bless you for your amazing inspiration - thank you for all that you put into this challenge. Not as much glitter as I'd originally imagined Dina, but here is my Forget Me Not card.

I enjoyed this challenge and was able to combine it with the Free 4 All challenge too. I actually used 5 different media. Yay!

Loved this technique so I used it again and combined it with Mix-Ability 9 Construction zone.
Here is my card.... Mixed Butterflies

Here is my Glitter Under Glass entry. I think I forgot to add much for mixed media beside the usual way I make cards! Just too busy putting the crop in and am squeaking cards out in the spare minutes!

My take on the challenge. These are simple Stickles but this totally qualifies.

I did try another tag with layers of UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) and glitter, and again, and again. But it didn't give the "glitter under glass" look I was hoping for.

blessings, Lela
