When Glitter Glue Explodes

Glitter Glue Printed Tape Masking Rubber Stamps

I had painted a background and planned to make a page border with glitter glue. I had a bottle of glitter glue I had just purchased at the craft store. I was so excited to play with it. The jar looked so enticing. Alternating turquoise and lime green glue spiraled throughout the tube. I love those colors! I squeezed and squeezed, but nothing was coming out. I should have known something was wrong! But as I squeezed the bottle like the Hulk, all I thought was,”Wow, this comes out hard!” Duh! Well, all of a sudden a large glob of glitter rolled down my hand and onto the page. The top of the plastic jar was sliced open! So I spread the glue out onto the page and went with it. Lots of painting with my fingers on this one. I also used a little punched star as a mask. I found some tape in the dollar section of Michael’s that has little birds on it. Too cute!

Shooting Star Page

Apple Barrell Gloss Paint

Apple Barrel Gloss Paints were used on the background of this page. I love their shiny-ness! And I was thrilled that I was able to write on top of the paint. I wanted a lop-sided star on this page. But I wanted one that looked better than this one. Those darn haphazardly lopsided stars are harder to draw than they appear. The silver ink aura around the star is the only other element of the page that I wish had come out better.
