Okay, ya’all know I love glitter. Although I would have been more than happy to spend 3 hours applying gemstones to my daughter again, she did not want a ‘repeat’ from Homecoming. We had several ideas, but nothing we could settle on as the perfect compliment to her dress. As we looked at some of the Bond Girls from a web search, we thought a modern BG just might have a unique tattoo. We considered various symbols and jungle animals but nothing fit. We looked at various flowers, and she finally settled on a simple rose. AND, I got to play with glitter! Yay!
I used outdoor vinyl for the stencil because it is thinner and would mold to her shape best. We also purchased some cosmetic glue and cosmetic grade glitter.
The next step is to remove the stencil before the glue dries or you’ll end up with strings of glue stretching out from the design.
The glue is ‘ready’ when it turns completely clear. Then you can use a brush to apply the glitter.
Brush back and forth many times and in many directions to ensure good coverage. Finally, wipe over the area with your hand to release any extra glitter.
And here is my Glitter Glamour Girl at Prom:
AND…yesterday was her graduation. I want to thank Nancy for this wonderful idea – from her First Birthday post. Although my posters got a little wet on the way home, and therefore a little wrinkled, these were fabulous on my car for everyone to see when we left the school. Some of the graphics are done with a Sharpie marker using my KNK Maxx 24″ and some of them are vinyl. On her name, I used Copic markers to air brush pink along the top and blue along the bottom to make it “pop”.
