Music of the Spheres by Debrey Taylor

Debrey is blessed with the wonderful opportunity to get secondhand frames and moldings from her husband’s frame shop. This beautiful piece was first covered with gold metal leaf and then treated with a crackle paint finish.

Next she layered various clippings of music paper, photos, glitter lace paper and an old image. Then she embellished with Art Glitter’s Large and Small Solar Beads and bugs made from Fantasy Film.

But the most exciting technique here is the glitter that was added to the center image. She made thin lines of Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, smeared them with her finger. Then put her glue finger into the Ultrafine Opaque #65 Old Gold glitter and smeared it onto the wet glue. Making beautiful wispy accents of glitter.

Thank you Debrey for another innovative technique for applying glitter!

Tip: this technique does not work with Microfine glitter. To see how to make glitter lace paper and the film bugs click on the links above. Enjoy!


  1. This is gorgeous! I need to remember to pass this blog on to another of my bloggers. She'd love it too.
