How to use Shimmer Paint on your Crafting projects

 My very favorite accessory in the Stampin' UP! 2018 Holiday Catalog is the SHIMMER PAINT!

Wow!! What an easy way to add glam, elegance, shimmer and shine to any papercrafting project!!

Find Shimmer Paint on page 38 in the 2018 Holiday catalog or HERE online.

Today I'm sharing several ways to use the shimmer paint as well as reposting my free video tutorial!

 

Shimmer Paint Tips for paper crafting projects by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 First, just a tip about storing your Shimmer Paint.... I like to keep my Shimmer Paint, Sponge Dauber and Spritzer all together in one little zip lock.. it really cuts down on the time spent hunting around on my craft table :)
