Inspirational words for picture collages and other art projects

This glitter picture frame project was inspired by two very good friends getting married. I decided to use two mediums to create this wedding collage; shrink plastic and homemade glitter glue.

The items used for this project were:

  • a wood picture frame (I found mine at a second-hand store)
  • white and black shrink plastic
  • Glow-In-The-Dark Mod Podge
  • polyester glitter: Iridescent Voided Lament
  • colored markers

I applied three coats of the Mod Podge Glow-In-The-Dark, allowing each application to dry fully before applying the next layer.

I wanted to have the picture frame to sparkle during the day and glow at night.

I then mixed 1/4 teaspoon of the Iridescent Voided Lament to 4 tablespoons of the Mod Podge Glow In The Dark, making a wonderful glitter glue.

I then made sure to apply the glitter glue evenly onto the frame.

While the glitter glue was drying I made several inspirational word plaques with the white and the black shrink plastic.

It is fun to watch the shrink plastic reduce in size as it bakes in a toaster oven.

Once the word plaques were cooled off, I added them around the pictures I used for the wedding collague.

The picture collage and frame turned out great.
