Welcome back! Its time for another Dreamweaver's Thursday Challenge! This month's theme is "Summertime, Sparklers, and S'more"! I pulled out the Lotus stencil and decided to create some summery pattern paper.
Using Distress Inks and a blending tool, I filled the white cardstock with a field of colorful stenciled lotus. Here's the part that made me a bit nervous. If it didn't work, I would be starting back at the beginning. I added a bit of Translucent Paste on the wide spreader and pulled it down over the entire piece leaving a thin coat of paste on the entire piece. Quickly, while it was still wet, I sprinkled on the clear glitter. I tapped off the extra and held my breathe waiting to see how it would dry.
It worked! In the past I would use a wet glue, trying to work quickly painting glue on the entire piece and adding the glitter before the glue dried. I had a much longer working time with the paste and applying it with the spreader was a breeze.
Have you joined in this month's challenge yet? Well, what are you waiting for. Create a project with the theme... "Summertime, Sparklers, and S'more"! Be sure to link it to the linky tool at Dreamweavers Stencils.
Now let's hop! Hop along and check out all the gorgeous creations that the Dreamweavers team has cooked up this week...
