Sparkle Secret #2
If you are crazy for glitter like me, your average sprinkle of glitter is not always enough. One way to add a little more shine to your projects is to add Gold Leaf.
You can purchase Gold Leaf at any Arts & Crafts store, or online (I frequent www.dickblick.com).
Just apply a little bit of glue to the spot where you want the gold leaf. Than gently place a sheet of the gold on top of the spot.
Gold Leaf is super temperamental, so handle it gently and move it around slowly.
After the glue is dry, take a dry brush and wipe and away the excess Gold Leaf from your object. In my example, I mixed glitter and gold to make a shine-elicious frame!
I used a three-sectioned frame as my object (purchased at Target).
Side note: Frames make excellent photo props. You can frame any interior or exterior scene.
Play around with colors and monotones, when editing photos.
