Glittered with Mod Podge Ultra

Rainbow Glittered Monogram with Mod Podge Ultra

I have used Mod Podge for years…

So, when Plaid gave me the opportunity to try out Mod Podge Ultra, I thought why not.

I always love trying something new.

What makes Mod Podge Ultra different?

America’s favorite decoupage medium is now available as a spray!  Mod Podge Ultra  is a super strong, non-toxic spray formula that works as all-in-one glue and sealer with a high adhesion level.  Perfect for adding dimensional design embellishments to your projects.  This versatile, water-based formula dries quickly and naturally self-levels, leaving no brush marks.  It cleans up easily with soap and water and is available in both matte or gloss finishes.

For my Framed Rainbow Glitter Monogram I used:                         (*affiliate links)


  • Protect your work area with newspaper or drop cloth.
  • Shake Bottle for 15 seconds.
  • Prime the nozzle with a few test pumps.
  • Spray the chipboard letter with Mod Podge Ultra using short even strokes.
  • Add various colors of glitter over the letter.
  • Pour excess glitter off.  Allow project to dry for 30 minutes.
  • Seal letter with 1-2 coats of Mod Podge Ultra.
  • Allow  the letter to fully dry.
  • Accent the outside edge of the letter  using the silver leaf paint pen with a chisel point.
  • Spray or paint the back of the letter with Mod Podge Ultra and add to a piece of black chipboard.
  • Place inside frame for fun and funky framed art.
  • Just like a paint brush, Mod Podge Ultra Spray tops need to be cleaned after every use. If they aren’t they will clog and become unusable.

With most glittered projects… if you touch the glittered area you leave a little bit of glitter everywhere you go.  Once I sealed the glittered “S” the glitter does not rub off.  How cool is that.

A special Thank You goes out to Plaid the makers of Mod Podge Ultra*.

Sue’s Fussy Cutting for Beginners

Deflecto Hot off the Press Frame 5497

What is Fussy Cutting you ask?

Fussy Cutting is a quilting term meaning: the selective cutting of a fabric based on a particular element or design.  To cut pieces of fabric so that a particular part of the printed design is centered or featured.

Scrapbookers and Paper Crafters have adopted the term using it to select and cut around specific images on a printed paper.

When I fussy cut, I look for larger, whole images that are easy to cut out.  You’ll need to have a good, sharp pair of scissors with a fine tip so you’ll be able to cut smaller detailed images.  For layering, my favorite thing to use is thin 3D foam mounting squares from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L.

HOP Paper Pack

Above is a picture I created using Hot Off the Press Artful Watercolor collection.  The paper pack comes with two sheets of each design.

Below is the framed picture broken down into sections.

Deflecto HOTP Frame numbered

  1. I used a second sheet of the scrapbook paper (with the large white flower) and cut along the design to create a pocket.  The pocket was inked with brown ink to make it stand out more.
  2. I added my daughter’s picture right at the top of the pocket.  I cut post cards from a another sheet from the collection and inserted into the pocket covering the bottom of the picture.  The picture and postcards are secured into place with my double adhesive tape.
  3. I cut out two white flowers from the floral scrapbook sheet from the collection.  Cut close around the image.  I gave the flowers shape by rubbing the back of the flower with a large ball stylus tool on a soft foam or rubber surface.  Adhere the flowers together with a thin foaming mounting square.
  4. Cut the center only from two additional flower images.  Round the centers (step #3).  Adhere to the center of the white flower using a small thin foam mounting squares.
  5. Place finished picture into the floating beveled frame.  Mount layered flower on top the large white flower that is under the glass.
