Glitter, glitter, everywhere!

You may remember this card, a few months ago. Today it's being featured by Amy, over at Mod Podge Rocks. If you love MP as much as I do, check out her blog. Did you know you can Mod Podge SHOES? Oh yeah, I'm all over that one.
Today's Blogtoberfest tutorial is going to be a speedy one. I'm repeating the mantra "I'm not going to get sick" over and over, with 5 out of the 6 members of my household succumbing to a nasty cold after the past two weeks. It's been a long road to recovery, and the job of head nurse has definitely been taking its toll on me. If I can just keep from losing my voice, I'll be happy. 'Cuz how can I keep up on my Fabulous Videos without my voice-over voice? A croaking frog is just not fun to listen to.
So, the tip for the day.... anti-mess glitter! You know you love it, you know you use it. But glitter after the fact isn't always the best thing (ever had a sparkly butt? You know what I'm talking 'bout). I like to mix a bit of Mod Podge with glitter, then "paint" on the mixture. If you use a paintbrush, wash it well afterward. Or use a disposable foam brush. Or a Q-tip. Or your fingers, anything works. Smooth it out flat, or leave it thick, it will dry either way. Store the mixture in an airtight container (those little screw top containers that you get brads in are good, or you can use an empty clam-shell packaging).
Love Liquid Glass? I do too! This tip will work for LG, but it doesn't store well, so only mix up what you need at the moment. It tends to dry out in the container, so you'll end up with a lovely, hard, sparkly container. Pretty, but useless for future projects.
