Last Post From Trudy...

Hi everyone!
True here.

I am sad to say that this will be my last Art Glitter post.
I truly LOVE being on this team but am finding that the majority of my "crafty" time needs to focus more on my illustrations and stamps.
I want to thank Art Glitter and all of the wonderful girls on the team for the fun, friendship, and support!
For my last post, I wanted to use the stunning #811 Grape Cluster Large Glass Beads.
I took the name seriously and created a grape ATC. :)

 I thought I would show you real quick, just how easy it is to create grapes with these beads.
I simply squiggled a rough shape of grape bunches onto my ATC, then sprinkled on some "grapes".

After allowing a little drying time, I added some more towards the top of the clusters to give them more dimension. Just a note, the Designer Dries Clear Glue is the best adhesive for Art Glitter projects.  Diamond Glaze dries a bit faster when in a hurry!

After that dried, I went back over the clusters with a coat of the glaze to insure they would all stay in place. I tore some green cardstock into tiny "leaves", added some "veins" with a Copic marker then attached them to the grapes with more glaze. Very quick and easy! I hope you will give it a try!



  1. What a great technique. I like the little pops of the unripened grapes in the clusters too.
    It really makes such a pretty card.
    Thanks for sharing such a lovely idea!
