Ok so I love the look that glitter gives a page, but I have never really tried it before. I did try elmer's glue and regular glitter before and that was just a disaster! haha...the glitter comes off really easily and has filled the page protector...it's a mess! I'm going to be asking for some scrap stuff for Christmas so I was wondering what glittery products you all would recommend! Are they paints? Pens? Thanks for any help!

Definately stickles. There are sooo many colours. They are so affordable you could pick up a few colours every time you pop into your fave scrapbooking store. They are a giltter glue, so you just squeeze it on to where you want and it dries glittery! I highly recommend it!!

As the girls say, stickles or a similar glitter glue works wonders. It has a slim nozzle for precise application or you could put it on and spread it with your fingers for a thinner layer.

stickles is great...if you are trying to do a large surface though I would recomend using diamond glaze. I use my regular glue on the paper, spread it around, then add the glitter, then go over it with the diamond glaze and that will put sort of like an expoxy finish over it sealing it all in.

That sounds like a great idea! Do you have a picture of a LO you did this on? Usually I use stickles, but I just got some diamond glaze last week. I haven't used it much yet though.

The one in my gallery called beautiful thinker has the diamond glaze over the glitter...and the got snow one has the diamond glaze over the word snow which is chipboard letters, painted, then glittered, then diamond glaze over it.

I agree stickles are awesome! There is also a glitter glue pen I found that I love. I will check the name of it when I get home tonight and let you know what it is.
