video tutorial by Natalie Elphinestone making glittery flowers to stick in your journaling Bible

Glitterfying has got to be a verb right? Or perhaps a noun? I’m a glitterfier, are you a glitterfier? I’d happily glitterfy everything… and is often the case, once you start glitterfying you’ll quickly discover you really have glitterfied everything! I’ve been known to find it in my pockets, on my kitchen sponge, all over my children of course, and even at the bottom of my coffee cup as I take the last mouthful! There’s no doubt it can get a little messy, but it’s also super fun right? Last year I shared a few different techniques on how to add glitter into your journaling bible (you can see that post HERE) and today I’m going to expand on that with another new and exciting technique.

This technique involves making your own customised embellishments using nothing more that your sewing machine, repurposed plastic packaging and a good dash of glitter.

Quite often I find that if I spend a little bit of time creating a special ‘statement piece’ for my project – in this case the glittery roses – then you can keep the remainder of the page fairly simple to allow maximum attention to rest on them. That means this page came together very quickly in the end and I’ll share that process with you today in my video as well.

    I love all your videos so much :-) Thanks for sharing your creativity. I am also “glitter-addicted”. I always think that the fun is higher than the mess. I have to promise to clean everything up behind me, so there arent any glitterstains on the kitchentable left, when I finished my pages.

      I make no such promises! ;-)
      My husband is getting used to seeing glitter everywhere – especially since my two girls get in on the action too! Although he does get a bit ‘funny’ when he finds it in the baby’s hair!

    I love your way of journaling. I’m more of a scrapbooker too than an artist.

      Thank you Joni! I think one of the best things about Bible-journaling is that there isn’t any rules! There’s no right or wrong way to do it. I can only pretend to paint and draw illustrations (and sometimes I do that in my bible too – just for the fun of it) but I’m much more comfortable with scrapbooking techniques, so I’ll stick with those the majority of the time :-)
