Does anyone know how to make your own swirls and flourishes out of bead paint. I had seen a tutorial but cant find it. It showed how you can print a swirl off the internet and use a trasperancy over it and you added stickles or bead paint to it in dots and it looked great but I dont remember the rest. Any tricks you all know. I have looked all over the net and to no avail.Below is an example of what the look I want to achieve is.

Thanks Rachel, that was the exact one I was talking about. Awesome, I almost had it but I thought you took them off the clear sheet, DUH, now it makes sense. Appreciate it!

Can you get liquid pearls in M's or HL or even here? I feel like I've never seen them, and everyone else seems to use them. LOL

You can get them at SOME WalMarts...I have never seen them at Hobby Lobby, but puff paint will work too...the metallics look good.

I wonder about cutting out the plastic sheet.

I would probably copy the original swirls, and use it to make a stencil. Then use it to create the "pearls" directly on my page.

I have done this on quite a few LO recently- i use the puffy paints because i cant find liquid pearls. They are very easy to do and once dried, very easy to cut! This is one of my new favorite things to do!!!

Hmmm...I own all 13 colors of the liquid pearls and I am hooked on this technique!!! I have done it on sooo many LOs and a couple of cards! I also mix stickles in with the liquid pearls for extra fanciness. But...I have never thought to use puffy paint....so I will have to try that!!!

I have looked at all my regular online stores and nobody seems to carry the liquid pearls...frustrating. I'm sure my walmart doesn't but I'll be in the big city (chattanooga LOL) tonight and I may check their walmart.
Such a great idea--I can't wait to try it!

I did some last night with bead paint from HL and with stickles and it worked great. I am hooked, I tried different ones with different colors and they dont look homemade for sure!
