I hope you enjoyed our featured image yesterday. Today I would like to share one of my favorite crafting items with you. I love the look of Glimmer Mist but not the price. I came across a recipe awhile back and love it. Here it is! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
This is the "recipe" for homemade Glitter Mist:
Perfect Pearls or Pearl Es (gold and white are the best)
Fill bottle 1/2 way with rubbing alcohol
Fill rest of bottle with water (leave room to shake it)
1/4 teaspoon of Perfect Pearl Pigment Powder
For tint add 3 drops of alcohol ink or re-inkers (optional)
Here is my bottle of glimmer mist. I like to get the bottles at the dollar store. You must shake the bottle every time before you use it. The powder does settle to the bottom.
Here is my paper right after I sprayed it with glimmer mist. Make sure to give it plenty of time to dry. If you are in a hurry you can use a fan or heating tool to dry it quickly. Once it is dry flip it over to flatten it back out. I like to place a small book on it for a little while.
Here is my paper dried and ready to use.
I added Shelly's wonderful Feathered Friends image to finish off my card.
I hope you stop by and share you own creations with the glimmer mist you make.
