Glitter Window Technique

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Today’s card was a sample I showed my class at the Techie class on Monday night and Tuesday morning.? This was the Glitter Window Technique and one of the techniques they learned in class.? This was a Back to Basics technique and I made a video tutorial for you to enjoy.? Here is the card sample showing the glitter window technique.

Here is a close up of the Glitter Window:

I have a few disclaimers on the video tutorial.?? My son Dean is the cameraman again for me (he’s 10), he was a little heartbroken I didn’t mention him in the video so I’m mentioning him here. :)? We had to do retakes about 5 times before we ended up with this video.? It isn’t perfect by any means, we have mistakes and bloopers but we made it thru and that is what homemade is all about not perfection but having fun and sharing our ideas.? We had lots of laughs as we started over and over again and finally just kept rolling.? Dean said we should make a bloopers video and put that out, hmmm maybe someday. :)? Enjoy! 🙂

    Great tutorial. I haven’t used that technique in ages. I guess it’s time to bring it back. And Dean did a nice job video taping.

    What a wonderful card! I love the simplicity of this technique. It’s looks like it would be harder to make than it is.

    Thanks for the WONDERFUL video tutorial! Tell your son he did an excellent job video taping!
