I promised I'd tell everyone how to make my shimmer spray. There's tons of youtube videos on "homemade glimmer mist" but here's how I made mine.
spray bottle (hobby lobby in the art section has these) (I think it's a 4 oz bottle, I'm not sure)
white elmers glue
pearl-ex (not necessary, but adds extra shimmer)
Take spray bottle and fill 2/3 of the way with water. Add 1/4 tsp glue and about 1" of paint in your choice of color. more paint = more color. add a heaping 1/8 tsp of pearlex and add cap. shake until it's all mixed up. spray on paper or flowers, etc. either air dry or heat-set with embossing gun.
you will need to throughly shake it up every time you use it, but glimmer mist costs around $5/ bottle. this is at least 2x that size and per bottle to make, cost me $.50. Now, if your'e not going to use TONS, don't make tons. I have 5 colors right now in my arsenal and I plan on making about 6 more.
I have peridot, champagne, white, red, gold, and a peacock blue. I plan on making silver, pink, purple, yellow, orange, and black. (can you imagine the black sprayed on a black for a super elegant or even halloween look????)
The shimmer spray can be used on just about anything, but be careful. as it's acryllic paint, it WILL paint your clothes and/or table and get everywhere. I use an old shoebox and spray inside of that.
