My new obsession....for this week.

Sparkle Mod Podge! I've always known about it, and I've used regular Mod Podge since before I started scrapping. I just kinda thought, what the heck would you use that for? But when I dropped by Michael's yesterday to pick up some basics (sponge brushes were on sale for 8 cents each!), there it sat. I figured, I like sparkle, and I've been using the glossy MP on alot of projects lately, so what the heck! It is so awesome! It has clear, fine glitter in it, and it dries glossy. It makes life so much easier than adding glitter seperately. I can't wait to use it on some painted chipboard letters this weekend. Maybe this was what my Hello Door Sign needed!

I'm also going to try the tea-spray staining, too. On the Croppin' USA (on DIY) that was on this past weekend, Anna Griffin did it on recipe cards, and it looked really cool. You just make regular tea, put it in a spray bottle, spray the paper, and let it dry. Then you're left with these cool splatter stains. This may be old news, but this was the first time I'd seen it, and I'm gonna give it a try!
