Here is a great technique for highlighting a portion of the photo with glitter and making it pop. Using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Brushable Glue, brush the glue on generously to the photo and then cover with glitter (Neon Flamingo was used here). The center of the flower used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Dimensional Glue and Evening Glow to add to depth. Tip: Use a Semi-Transparent glitter for this technique so it will show some of the detail of the photo underneath.
Try printing the photo in black and white and then use Copic Markers to color in a portion. In this photo the background was colored (B02, E33) to make the couple pop out. In the previous photo the eyes where colored. Also in this photo the background was highlighted with glitter (Waterfall and Celestrial) using the Sakura Glue Pen.
The third technique is for the advanced stamper/scrapper and is heat embossing directly on the photo. This is a technique that should be practiced on a scrap photo first. Be sure to use a Static Free bag first on your photo so you don't get stray pieces of embossing powder then just stamp on the photo using Versamark and cover with embossing powder. In this photo the Swamp Rose was used with Tequila Sunrise embossing powder.
You can also stamp directly on a photo using Stazon Ink. The Sea Birds were added with Black Stazon.
The sun's reflection was also highlighted with the Glue Pen and Evening Glow glitter.
