Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze Blog Hop
Welcome to my post for the Glitter Glaze blog hop! My post will not include BM Glitter Glaze, unfortunately. Let me explain. I ordered the wrong thing from the B|M Store. And when I realized my mistake, it was too late to get the right product. So I improvised by making my own glitter paste mixing equal parts Mod Podge Extreme Glitter and Aleene’s Tacky Glue with some fine blue glitter I had in my stash. I paid $11 for these supplies. A jar of B|M Glitter Glaze costs only $6.99, and comes already formulated, mixed and in a resealable jar!!
For my first attempt at using a (homemade) glitter glaze, I was very pleased with the results.
I took a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles die and cut out a smaller portion of the panel. I cut a piece of silver card stock I had in my stash a little larger than the glazed panel. I used a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the corners of these two panels. Then, I adhered the glazed panel over top of the silver panel with some B|M All-purpose Craft Glue.
I glued these to the front of an A2 sized card base I made from Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock and rounded the corners of the card base, too. To tie these elements all together, I cut a band of dark blue card stock to one inch and layered it over some parchment paper. Then I stamped and a holiday sentiment from my stash with B|M Embossing Ink on the same colored card stock. I heat embossed it with B|M Alabaster Embossing Powder and my Wagner Heat Tool. I layered it on top of a piece of parchment paper, as well, then adhered it to the front of the panel.
