General Techniques

Tissue Paper Background with Velvet or Ultrafine Glitter

by Cheryl Bennett


White Tissue paper

Spray inks with glimmer

Brushable Glue or Dimensional glue. 

Velvet or Ultrafine Glitter


1.     Cut tissue paper into desired size sheets. 

2.    Place on non-stick surface (I used non-stick foil on a cookie sheet). 

3.   Spray with glimmer ink.  Use colors from same color family to avoid muddy colors.  Let dry.  Add more ink if desired.

4.    When paper is dry, apply Brushable glue or Dimensional Glue.  Apply in dots, lines, or swirls as desired.   Pour glitter over the tissue paper, and shake off excess.  Let dry. 

      5.  Makes a gorgeous background paper.  Crinkle paper as desired.  Warning, this is one of those techniques where it is hard to stop, because you keep wondering what if you add a different color, or make different patterns of glitter, etc.!
