Lovely | Adrienne Alvis

Happy Tuesday, Shimmerz fans! I have a layout to share with you today that I created using Acritonez, Coloringz, and Aqua Huez

I started by choosing a black and white patterned paper sheet that had small hearts on it from my stash. I used some Acritonez in "3 Sheets To The Wind" and a dry paintbrush to drag the self-priming acrylic paint across the main part of my background paper. This helped add a little texture and prepped the paper for some Coloringz spray ink and Aqua Huez.

Next, I used some Aqua Huez watercolors in "Little Lily", "African Violet", and "Green with Envy" and blotted them around my page using a paper towel and some water for a subtle effect. I also added a little bit of Acritonez self-priming acrylic paint in "Pinkadelic" for a bolder pop of color.

I layered an all white cut file on top of my background design and placed the photos of my blooming Red Bud tree near the middle. I also used some Coloringz spray ink in "Punked Up Purple" and "No Yoking" to add some accent color splotches around my layout.

I added a few floral die cuts from Pink Paislee, some enamel dots, and some chipboard stickers for my embellishments to complete my page!

Don't be afraid to mix colors and different Shimmerz products! Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you have a great day!

Layers of Shimmerz for two toned effects

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here today sharing a card I used using the fun Shimmerz paint.  I love the shimmery goodness that are contained in these pots, and sometimes even a bonus that with just a little stir it is ready to go!

Shimmerz Products Used:
Shimmerz - Bubble Gum Blast
Shimmerz - Antique Lace

I thought I would take you through the process of creating the sweet two toned stripes in the background of my card today.

First I took the Bubble Gum Blast Shimmerz, gave it a little stir and then added some stripes to the background.  I really love this look and how it transforms the background instantly.

I wanted to add a little more colour so after I gave the first layer a dry off I added a second layer of a differeent color.  This time the Antique Lace.  This color seriously goes with anything!  It is definintely one of my favourites!

I just love how the two toned stripes really help tie all the other elements of the card into the background and make it all one.  You could really have some fun with this technque!

Here are some more pics of my card:

I Hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!

I Love Today Scrapbook Layout | Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share a scrapbook layout with you all. I am scrapbooking  a photo of myself. I recently started my own business and this picture just expresses how I feel in the clothing I'm selling. I decided to create a fun and simple background.

I began with scribbly floral cut file. I placed it on top of a white piece of carsdstock. I used Several Coloringz in Mandarin Mai Tai, Well Blue me Down and Peachy Keen. I also used a Spritz in Saphire, a Vibez in Sweet Heart and a Creameez in Sky's the Limit. For the Creameez, I watered it down and added it to a small spray bottle to get the same mist effect as with the other colors. 
I then used the misted cut file itself on top of the white cardstock. I slightly offset the cut file so that it was not directly over the misted area. I love the look this created. So simple and so fun.
I used a teal stripped transparency as a layer behind my photo. It makes my photo stand our over all of these gorgeous colors. 
I used black foam thickers for my tittle. I also scattered around some foam hearts and stars. I chose not to embellish any further, The fun bright colors were enough embellishment for me.

Products Used:
Coloringz: Peachy Keen, Well Blue me Down, Mandarin Mai Tai
Spritz: Saphire
Vibzs: Sweetheart
Creameez: Sky's the Limit

Joy Canvas with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have a fun mixed media canvas to share. How I love to create a girly grungy project! I am going to give this one to my cutie pie grand daughter.

For the background I started with some stencil work with Salt of the Earth Paste-eez…perfect for added texture.

After the canvas was put together it was time to add some gorgeous Shimmerz colors…I used Chocolate Brownie and Mama Sings the Blues Coloringz.

Finish it all off with some splatters of Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz.

Shimmery team up with sweet florals

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here today with a sweet card share.  I had lots of fun creating this card so I'm even going to take you though it!

Shimmerz Products Used:
Shimmerz Creameez - Tripin in the Tropics
Shimmerz Creameez - Green Acres

I thought I would take you through the process of creating my card today.

To start I added a little gesso to the pink card base with my finger.

I also die cut 3 of these vine circles from the white glitter cardstock.  It die cuts so well and is a really neat way to use glitter cardstock as it adds the most beautiful accent to your projects in this way.  It is probably my favourite way to use glitter cardstock!

Next I took some die cut leaves and gave them a coat of my Shimmerz Creameez paint in Green Acres and allowed them to dry.

I also added some Shimmerz Creameez to my background by splattering and then softening the splatter with a pice of plastic.  

I also added a little green splatter to the background in the same colour Creameez added to the leaves.

I didn't want such a large sentiment for this card so I decided to cut the sentiment strip up and add it in two parts to finish my card.
Here are some more pics of my sweet card:

I Hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!
