Hot Trend from Paper Scrapbooking: Glitter + FREE Glitter Style
Posted on under Hot Trends from Paper to Digi, INSPIRATION
Are you looking for a little something extra to try on your next layout?
Glitter is a hot trend this holiday season with traditional paper scrappers.
What is Glitter?
Glitter is shiny little pieces that sparkle with a lot little twinkles of dazzling light. The ways paper scrappers use glitter seem to be endless. It comes in many different forms including dry, wet and as tape.
Here are a few paper layouts, cards and albums using glitter in different ways:

What about Digital when it comes to Glitter?
A little touch of glitter could be just the thing to add that sparkle to your layout. Adding glitter to a digital page is so much easier as well as neater than with paper scrapped pages and there are a few different ways to add it to digital layouts. First, there are many kits and embellishment packs out there that have glittered elements – totally easy to use just by placing them in your layout. Check out these from Sahlin Studio:
Some examples of digital glitter in use:
Glitter Styles in Photoshop make adding glitter as easy as a click of the mouse. Just pick a digital brush, element, shape or a selection of an element or background and click the style button.
How easy is it?? Open up any element, shape or digital brush and click the style button.
Viola!! Instantly glitter-fied!
Where to find them? There are so many different places to get digital glitter styles. Run a Google search for “Glitter Style” OR check your favorite digital shop. One of the best digital glitter is from Studio Flergs. She is the glitter queen, and creates some of the best digital glitter I’ve seen! You can find an array of different colors and packs in her shop here.
Another way to add glitter is to use Glitter Sheets. Just like with styles, glitter sheets can be used with any digital brush, element or shape. Glitter sheets can easily be used by “clipping” it to the layer you want glittered. If you are interested in making your own glitter sheets, Marisa Lerin has a Making Glitter Texture in Photoshop tutorial (this also works for Photoshop Elements). As she says this is just a base guide so don’t be afraid to play around with the different patterns in your program for different looks.

thank you very much for the lovely glitter. Those paper scrap pages are awesome. If I wasn’t that messy I would try to paper scrap but I’m so bad at cleaning up and using glue or scissors I don’t think I can go there lol lol

Hi, I really wanted to use these to add glitter to words. I installed them as patterns into GIMP but they didn’t show up. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
August 6, 2014 at 10:19 am>
Here is a brief tutorial on adding “actions” into Photoshop: http://sahlinstudio.com/category/tutorial/scrapbooking-tutorials/page/2/ Although it is for ‘actions’ it is the same technique for adding styles. Just go to your Style palette, and follow the same instructions.
