This works best on thin lines.
Start with a black line, or swirls, or as shown here, I’m starting with the holly doodles I made.
If you don’t already have glitters in your stash you can grab these great glitters by Marisa Lerin here.
I chose to use a layer pattern (.pat file) and I chose a green glitter (one I already had made for these fun holly doodles).
You can get to the layer styles at the top menu bar: Layer > Layer Style > Pattern Overlay
or, I like to double-click to the right of the layer in the layer panel and it brings up the same layer style window.
If you do it my way, then you will have to click on the words “Pattern Overlay.” This will “check” the pattern overlay style and bring up this styles options.
Note: If you only click on the box to “check” the style, the options box won’t come up. No problem...just click on the words “Pattern Overlay” to bring you to the options.
Click on the drop-down arrow by the pattern box to see your available patterns. Pick a glitter.
While we are in this layer style box, we are also going to "check" the "Bevel & Emboss" style. You do NOT need to check contour or texture, and you can leave all the settings to their default.
We are also going to “check” the “Drop Shadow” style. See the image below showing the adjustments I made to the options for this style.
But what about having multiple colors, or in this case the red berries for the holly?
A separate layer contains the dot doodles for the berries. You apply the same 3 layer styles above, but the glitter should be a red.
Now it looks like you squeezed glitter paint right from a puffy paint bottle.
I can’t wait to see all of your glitter puffy paint creations!
