I am having an Energy Crisis and Fun with Glimmer Mist

He Has energy and I don't. look at him full of energy ! ALways! But honestly the girls are always full of energy too! and Hoestly I wouldnt have it any other way.


2 blogs have inspired me Lately to try something new!!!! Pez a Doodle shares a techinique on creating Scrath and Sniff cards. What a fun card this would make for kids!! Even some Adults I know ! Cant wait to try this!


FORK BOWS at Stampin with DI Looks so fun a the tutorial is awesome!



As Far as things I have been working on. I teamed up with JULES (see my blog roll on the left) to show off some creative ways to use Glimmer Mist for KNK . Here is some fun work with Glimmer Screens. Gerri-Anne Has all the supplies you need to create this available in the mall at KNK :D


I love the glimmer screens which work much like a mask.

Since the Glimmer Mist is a wetter medium than ink your screen must bes stuck down well to your project area.

I used a stencil adhesive I got at Hobby Lobby. It is a rub on similar to a large glue pen. This adhesive is designed to hold stencils on walls while stenciling. I would think that spray temporary adhesive would work as well.


After the adhesive set up, I placed it on my project. (I did stamp the project first with a dye ink)

I then spritzed the project with glimmer mist. REMEMBER TO SHAKE WELL BEFORE SPRAYING AND CONTINUE TO SHAKE AFTER EVERY 2-3 SPRAYS. (THIS WILL HELP PREVENT THE SPRAYER FROM GETTING CLOGGED)

You can see how wet this is. You can either heat set or let it dry. Heat setting with a heat gun can help prevent the paper from curling. It would be helpful to blot the screen slightly before lifting. Here is the finished product

And here is another example
