Welcome to the Glitter Blog Hop hosted by Lorby's World. These talented crafters believe a little or a lot of glitter can make any project sparkle and today they are going to prove it with their creations. Please vist each participant and leave a little but of love on their blogs. 

Jearise from Lorby's World has a special drawing to go along with today's hop. One lucky winner will win a $10 gift card from Michael's. Just leave a comment on her blog so we know you joined us today. The winner will be announced on Sunday, July 28th so make sure you visit that day to see if you are the lucky winner.

For my project I made glitter Christmas ornaments. My Mom loves Pink and found some plain pink ornaments that she liked but wanted them to be jazzed up a bit. 

I took a die cut and put some adhesive on it and used it to make a pattern all over the ornament using a Sharpie marker.

I just moved the design over and over and connected them all over where I thought it looked good.

I used Glossy Accents and extra fine Black glitter and I just filled in the lines I made.

I was able to cover the whole ornament in 2 steps. I did about half of the ornament and then let it dry and came back and finished the other half. When it was totally dry I took a paint brush and brushed all the loose glitter off and filled in any spots I missed.
