I have A LOT of stuff and I use most of it-- I do have a lot of stamps but most all have been used at least once. I have a TON of eyelets/brads etc... I buy them , use a few on the LO I bought them for and have the rest left over--Lots of flowers- reds and pinks mainly- buttons-- oh, my the buttons I have! Embossing powders, paints, embossing plates...
All in all I have used most of what I have on at least one card or LO but find it hard to use it all up
You can use them on an applicator to color metal pieces, glass pieces, plastic pieces, glossy paper. Change the color of the whole piece or just accent a section here or there.
You can use them to make cool backgrounds for cards/layouts, mats, or to punch out letters and shapes from.
You can use them to custom color dry glitter.
You can even paint with them! I have the Ranger paint palette, but you can use anything really. Place a few drops of different colors in each section and let the ink dry. I have an alcohol ink refillable pen, but you could also use the craft nibs. Anyway-I fill up the pen with blending solution (or dip the nibs in it, being sure to soak it). Then I use the pen to "wake up" the colors by running the pen through the dried up ink. Then apply it to your project!
The mixatives are waaayyy too cool as well!! The snow cap makes an awesome marble design and the metallics bring a pretty shimmer.
Hope I explained that right because they are SO much fun to use!! Just be sure to use them in a ventilated area and never put them in a spray bottle.
Isn't it funny....I use Perfect Pearls all the time!
I've used them to centre in a flower, put random dots along the edge of papers, to fill in on candles to make the flames, to dot a letter 'i' or 'j'.....
I love my Perfect Pearls....
I needed to make some room - so I placed things I dont use or use the least in a huge storage container .... inside that are perfect pearls, lots of diffrnet color distress inks, sizzix & TH dies, all the ribbon or sew ribbon things (never even been opened!) loads of doubles of TH trinkets, grunge paper, glassine paper & pockets, all my washi tape ... and lots of other odds & ends! Oh also ever small 1$ stamp I own & hav never even opened also! IDK what I will do with ALL this stuff -- I went nutso when I 1st got back into SB'ing ... only to find out Im not really a "scrapbooker" Im altered, mixed media ect! Ive not yet scrapped a page, nor do I desire to LoL Now show me a canvas, wonderful bottle, weird other trinkets and Im all artist it ... LoL!
I went through a few grand & boy do I regret alot of it!! I cant believe I got so much washi tape & dont even like it as much as I thought I did!!! Plus I got into the copic & spellbinder kick (sold out of all that) now I have the Spectrum markers & I do love these.
This has been a great thread it makes all of us pull out our stuff and try to use it...I've pulled a lot of stuff I've forgotten I have and played with it. Another use for perfect pearls is to use it in making glimmer mists
Just did a re-peek, thers the cropadile thing (un-open) also the crop corner things (like 3) also liquid pearls, I thought i loved them but since i loved them ive only used then 1 or 2 more times?? Maybe i need to re-youtube these things I mean there was a reason I wanted then so badly!!
