Hi there, friends! Since last year, I've been wanting to make my own glimmer mists. I bought some of the items needed like bottle spray, Pearl-Ex and Perfect Pearls to name a few but didn't find the time to make them. Now finally, the time has arrived. Last week, I decided to watch several videos on "Making your own Glimmers" (a ton of them at YouTube) and how to make flowers using glimmers. This is what I came up with after buying some Folk Art Metallic Paint and combined with some water and glue (binding agent) with an addition of Pearl-Ex. I am pretty happy with the glimmer results. You will see that I made different colors and sprayed my flowers from scratch, drying it and forming the final shape. It's not very complicated but takes a lot of time due to the drying time for each flowers. Hope you like them:
To get different flower designs, I used my Cricut (Walk in my Garden) cartridge and cut 3 flower designs at 1.75", 1.40" and 1.10" sizes. I used my Gypsy here and it was a big help. They range from the 5 to 6 flower petals thus giving me variety. I had to hunt for some pearls and after checking at 4 Wal-Marts, the last one got it. Anyway, I am looking forward to including these flowers to my card creations in the future. I gotta go and hope you all have a blessed day in Jesus!
