A few months back, the lovely folks at DecoArt sent me a fabulous box of goodies (glitter paints, shimmer paints, stencils, chalkboard paint, decoupage and more!). I am absolutely embarrassed that all of these wonderful things have just sat in my arts & crafts area for MONTHS just waiting patiently to be played with. It wasn't for lack of inspiration but, rather, a lack of time (I have been so busy lately!). But, all that is changing today, cause I have a fun little project to share with you and it involves glitter! Hooray!
What you'll need:
* a smooth stone (top drilled so that you can hang it ... a great place to source these stones is Etsy)
* DecoArt Twinkles glitter paint
* ModPodge or some sort of sealant spray
* Heart stencil
* Paint brush
* Scotch tape
STEP 1: Lay down your newspaper and the top-drilled stone. Using LOTS of scotch tape, tightly tape the stencil to the newspaper leaving the to-be-stenciled area on the stone the only part of the stone that is revealed.
STEP 2: Load up your brush with glitter paint and generously paint onto the stone using a "dabbing" motion. Allow to dry. Apply a second layer of glitter paint. Continue until desired look is achieved.
STEP 3: Carefully remove stencil and, while the paint is still a bit wet, use a q-tip to scrape off any rouge pieces of glitter. Allow to dry overnight.
STEP 4: Seal the glitter with a thin layer or ModPodge or a clear sealant spray. String on a favorite chain and enjoy!
