Also Needed:  Picture Frame, White Card Stock, Card Stock to Match Theme for Background, Favorite Spray Ink, Embossing Folder and Die Cut Machine for embossing background (optional) 

Begin by spraying a piece of card stock that is a little smaller than your picture frame using your favorite spray ink and allow it to dry.  

 Trace or draw a picture onto the paper. 
 Use the metal tip to start outlining the small areas.  Add extra detail by using different colors in the same  section. 

Flood larger areas in glue and cover them with glitter.  Allow them to dry completely.   
Once the entire piece is dry, place it in a frame.  You can create a background for it by adding an embossed piece of card stock to finish off the look.
No matter if it's a holiday or every day, a 3-D piece of artwork set on a table or hung on the wall adds a lot to the look of a room.  Create a theme or individual pieces.  It's all up to you so add new life to your décor and use some Art Glitter to dress it up!  Start creating now and give your house a new shine with the beginning of a new year!
