I stumbled across one of my old craft projects and fell in love with it all over again!

I call it "Portrait Glitterature"
glitter art crafts

How to:
Simply print out one of your favorite photos, grab some fabulous colors of glitter & various glues, toothpicks.

Depending on what area you are covering determines what glue.  For little areas I used good ole' Elmer's glue and just kinda drawed it, bigger areas a glue stick.  You can even use a toothpick dipped in glue to "draw" your glitter details. Then sprinkled the glitter over the glued area.  Allow to dry before starting a new glitter color.  

Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! This project is a little messy but glitter is soo worth it :)

You can really get as detailed as you want, for my picture I wanted Nyla's eye lashes & ice cream to pop, so I concentrated on them.  
I remember this day, she was sooo excited to get ice cream with sprinkles!  (isn't that the coolest, being so little that sprinkles make you super happy!)
