Mother's Day Card Series #3 | Making My Own Glimmer Paste

I've seen a lot of creators use Glitter Paste or Glimmer Paste, with beautiful results. So I thought I would try to make something similar out of materials that I already had in my Studio.

Watch how I did this technique here.

I think the outcome turned about pretty good. Though the Crackle paint is definitely not a necessary medium, you can see it closer in the picture below. Unless your up close you can't really see the crackle in the paint. But that wasn't really the look I was going for anyways so it all worked out. I could see this being done with Glossy Accents too or Textured Paste (example of that combination coming soon).

I'm just happy that I can use my Stickles in a new way. I really enjoy mixing products lol.
