I am working on a lo and I want it to look like the fairy I have is sprinkling fairy dust (glitter or if you have a better idea) over my photo......heavier from the fairy and tappering off as it falls.....what should I use and what adhesive....

I don't want it overwhelming but soft.

TIA

Maybe mica flakes? Melissa Frances makes some but it's not carried here...I'd probably use glossy accents to stick it down.

Hmmm...I don't have a really good idea. The thing that first comes to mind is Glimmer mist and use some torn paper to protect the areas you don't want fairy dusted. (I'm thinking torn edges so the fairy dust trail isn't an abrubpt straight line?)

You might also look at diamond dust.

I would go with diamond dust too. Or if you have photoshop you can get that look with a brush.

I like Diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents for adhering Diamond Dust. I got a big jar at M's.

You could also use Diamond Stickles and just spread it with your finger.

When my husband does soft effects with model railroading, he uses a solution of water and Elmer's glue. He puts it in a old cleaning solution pump bottle (like Simply Green or Awesome) It would dry clean and not damage the photo much, plus give the softer effect you want. If you don't want to use a water based solution to preserve the photos (don't how fanatical you are about it) you could try to use a card over the nozzle of a spray adhesive to minimize the spread then sprinkle the clear glitter on. Hope this helps!

I actually use Stickles to adhere Diamond Dust. You could do what Ashley suggested and smear the Stickles, then sprinkle some Diamond Dust on it. I think that would look great!
