I don’t know about you, but I always feel the need to mix in some non-seasonal crafting during these last weeks of the year.
This scrapbook page that I’m sharing on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today, features Els’s awesome Silk Microfine Glitter and lace technique, that you can apply to both seasonal and non-seasonal projects!
Here are the written steps to the lace technique:
1 | Take a scrap of cardstock, slightly larger than you think you’ll need for your die-cuts. Adhere some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to one side of the scrap.
2 | Remove the backing and cover the sticky with one or more pieces of fine lace. The technique works best with finer types of lace.
3 | Choose two different colours of Silk Microfine Glitter. Take two contrasting colours for the best results: a dark and a light tone or for instance two colours on opposite sides of the colour-wheel.
4 | Cover the lace with the darkest of the two glitters. Tap off the excess glitter and burnish the remaining glitter into the sticky adhesive sheet.
The Silk Microfine Glitter will change its sheen while burnishing, so you’ll be able to tell which parts are done and which parts still need further burnishing.
5 | Remove the lace and repeat the process with the second colour of glitter.
6 | Die-cut the glittered cardstock with any die 0f choice. I chose the Jewelry Set 1-Sea Glass die set because it’s still one of my all time favourites!
7 | Add the lace/glitter-embellishments to your scrapbook page or any other project that could benefit from some subtle sparkle!
