If you checked out the Art Glitter blog today you may have seen a card that I made with the Mosaic Swirl Stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils and the double glitter method.  I am using that stencil again for another project.  This time...a bangle bracelet.

For this project I used:  Art Glitter (of course!) - Ultra Fine Pearlescent - #179 - Tang, Ultra Fine Transparent Neon -  #238 - Barbie's,  and Ultra Fine Opaque - #30 Royale.
And Dreamweaver Stencil - #901 - Mosaic Swirls
Bangle Blank from Diy Bangle.



I started by soaping the stencil and then taping 2 strips of 3/4" double stick tape across it.  I then use my little glitter spoon to spread small amounts of Tang and Barbie's Pink glitter in random swirl patterns.  I used the spoon to spread this glitter out and make sure that all the areas had been filled.  Then I tapped the excess glitter on to a piece of card stock and then into a clean container to use the pink/orange mix for another project.  

I removed the tape from the stencil and filled in the exposed areas with Royale blue glitter.  I then removed the plastic backing from the glittered tape.  This was probably the most challenging part of the project...but have patience and eventually you will get the backing to release.  

The tape was then attached to a DiyBangle that had been painted black.  The two pieces are actually a little longer than you need.  Just snip off the excess neatly. 

I finished by running 1/4" double stick tape around each edge and covering this with more Royale blue glitter.
