I'm also having so many problems with my movie making programs that its not funny anymore, one reason why i haven't posted too much lately please let me know if anyone can suggest a good program. Any how Ive been playing a bit with all my new Martha Stuart glitters I bought and love them! I wanted to show you how I use and store my glitters. We went through a phase here in Australia using kindy glitz or some of you would know this as stickles or the wet glitters and they were good but i don't think it leaves you with quite the same effect as using crystal effects with dry glitter. The wet glitters tended to warp and change the colour of the card where as using the crystal effects then applying dry glitter didn't and left the overall project a little raised and nicer looking and you know the nicest people are the ones with glitter on their faces ;) ...ones less messy though.... anyhow I guess it comes down to your needs as well. So this is how i store my dry glitters...
decor has these great little containers which are approx 2-1/2" across x 2" high they come in packs of 6 for a bit less than $1 each container from the grocery store.... Woolworth's here for all the Aussies. I tip my cylinder of glitter in and its so much easier getting the glitter back into a larger container. So then I went looking for some spoons.....and found exactly the right size in these puddings from the cheap shops (crazy Clarks) and now each colour glitter has its own spoon and the lid will close with them stored inside, cool hey! :))
So stamp your image, silhouettes work best and slowly and carefully go over only the image with crystal effects, sprinkle over your glitter and with a fine craft knife you can take little pieces back off where you may have gone over before it drys just to touch it up.
