Card Making With Dollar Tree Glitter Paint

Hi and welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! Thank you for stopping in and seeing what sort of fun we can get into today! If this is your first time here then you will probably want to know... I am not an affiliate of, nor sponsored by, any of the products I use in my video or blog. I keep this blog simply to share and connect with other nice people out in internet land! So don't worry... I'm not trying to sell you anything or suggest you buy anything... just join in for the pure fun of it! I am a big believer in trying to keep paper crafting affordable, fun, and using supplies you may already have in your stash. Today I wanted to share a video I posted on my YouTube channel showing a card being made by glitter poster paint I bought at the Dollar Tree!

Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I am so pleased that you are taking the time to stop in for a visit today. Thank you!

Have you ever played with alcohol inks? They are such a fun medium to create with. Today I made a very short video showing one of many ideas using alcohol inks. Here is that video... It is so fun to play with alcohol inks and I hope I inspired you to give it a try (if you've not done so already) or perhaps pull out your inks and get busy creating with them! Sometimes we put our art supplies away and forget to create with them, but it is always fun to rediscover them and create something new. I love creating backgrounds for cards this way. I tend to not add a lot to the front of the card because I don't want to distract from the beautiful colors and airiness of the inks. Here are some
