Glitter Creativity “On The Edge” by Sherri Reehil-Welser

I love to embellish anything and everything with beautiful glitter and then I decided I would embellish paper edges with the simple and pretty touch of glitter! The way the light dances off the glitter creates such a special look and adding it to the edges of my journal/doodle pages was a very interesting way to add some glam to the pages!

I started this fun project with Art Glitter, Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and some of my doodle pages! You can also do this on art journal pages, handmade cards, gift tags and even business cards that you want to add a special touch to. There are endless ways to add that special touch of sparkle onto your paper projects!

After you have gathered your items, pour a line of Designer Dries Clear adhesive and a line of Art Glitter on a scrap piece of paper. This is for dipping the edges of the paper into

Once you have dipped them in the Designer Dries Clear adhesive (try dipping on an angle for a geometric design too) then dip the edges into the Art Glitter. Set on a flat area to dry when finished.

If using a fine glitter, multiple layers can be dipped over each other at angles, creating pretty colored layer effects.

This is a simple but beautiful way to add a bit of sparkle to any paper art project.
