Pearlescent Pages with Perfect Pearls

Create pearlescent effects on paper with Perfect Pearls!

Technique by Jen Starr

Step 1: Choose a piece of patterned paper with a defined floral design.  Using a Non-Stick Craft Sheet as a palette, scoop out a small amount of Perfect Pearls in colors that match the flowers.  Use a Mini-Mister to spray the Perfect Pearls with water to create paint.  Use a paint brush to paint a translucent pearly glaze over the flowers.  Let dry and cut the flowers out.

Step 2: Cut a piece of cardstock to 7 ¾ x 7 ¾ inches and a coordinating cardstock to 8×8 inches for a border.  Arrange the flowers on the cardstock. Choose a coordinating stamp to fill in any empty spaces.  Stamp with Perfect Medium and use a brush to dust on matching Perfect Pearls.  Use a larger brush to wisk away any excess powder. 

Step 3: Add photo to layout and adhere the flowers. To add pearly dimension to the centers of the flowers, apply glossy accents as desired. 

Step 4: Dip a dry paint brush in Perfect Pearls use your finger to tap the brush so that the powder falls to cover the Accents.  Let dry and wisk away any excess powder. 

Step 5: To create the embossed title, mix black embossing powder with desired Perfect Pearls in a small container.  Stamp the title with Perfect Medium on a coordinating scrap of cardstock, pour on the embossing powder mixture, shake off the excess and heat with a heat tool until the powder melts. 

Step 6: Add a metal frame to embellish.
