Color Kitz Collection: March 2021 Edition with Samantha Robles

 Happy March everyone! My favorite month of the year! Really, today is like the first day of Spring. It's time to break out those pastels and vibrant hues. The March 2021 Collection is simply "golden". All things gold and shimmery is available in this kit. 

Let me start off by letting you guys know, you NEED the new exclusive color in this kit. It's called "Pink Lemonade Vibez" and it's one of a kind. To begin this layout, I gesso'ed my sheet of textured cardstock and then used my Carta Bella Hello Autumn Stencil with some modeling paste. Once my paste sets, then I  watercolor in some "Good As Gold" Inklingz and layered it with the "Goldie Lox" Shimmeringz that comes available with the paste. (Please note that Good As Gold is NOT available in the March Kit. You gotta pick that one up separately but it's so worth it!)

After my gold mixed media mess dried, I then painted my sweet paper flowers I found at my local Michaels. Behind those flowers, I then tucked some Prima Vintage Trinkets Mechanicals behind. My "Hello Sunshine" cut file was then ombre'd using both "Gosh Garnet" Inklingz and fading into the new Pink Lemonade Vibez. After my puddles dry, I then add some of the fun gold foil onto my geode background.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have the best week. Don't forget to stop on by the Shimmerz Shop to pick up your March 2021 Kit. While you're dropping in your order, leave my name in the comments of your order to snag a freebie on Shimmerz Paints.

Happy March!

Winter pleasures by Veronika Senova

 Hello friends, Veronika  here today!

I want to share with you winter layout (is it still winter right? :) about birds feeding, which is favorite thing to do for my daughters :) I wanted to create bush or tree with small birds so I checked my dies  stash and I found leaves dies and cut them out few times. I also fussycutted some little colorful birds from Shimell's Never grow up collection.

Then I added clear gesso to my white cardstock and put on table  my all my blue Shimmerz :)  When creating background simply with brush I try to start with lighter colors and then add darker so for this layout I started with Corney Flower Blue, continued with Ultra Marine and Frost Bite and finished with touch of Don't Rain on My Parade.

 And those is not all my Blues ๐Ÿ™ˆ. I really love blue so instead of buying other colors I have to add blue Shimmerz  at least one or two to my basket :D every time I shop :D Sometimes I miss some color but adding more blue shades create really nice deep into background and that is what I love :) But I promise, i will restock also yellows and greens ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š

OK OK back to layout :) I let it dry and after I added few splatters with Frost Bite,  Jeni B Bleu and white aquarelle white color. After that I added few small snowflake stamps with white ink and I was finished for background.  After it all was dry again I created bush with  die cutted leaves,  add birds and photo and adhered everything. For Title I used beautiful blue acetate alpha by Elles studio and little white foam alpha by Citrus Twist Kits. At the end I added few stickers and as a final touch I add few colorful splatters  (With Egg Noggin, Velveteen Green and Razzeldazzle Bery)

Hope you liked my layout and see you next time

In Her Heart


Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new design team post for the amazing Shimmerzpaints! I love their rich texture and colors! 

To make this page I put the layers under the photo together first,including taping water color paper under the image to make it stronger and lie flat. Below that is a mat of watercolor paper, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most the paper from the surface of the cardboard, and painted it with white gesso.I sprinkled on Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, and heated it til it was just melted. I put one or two layers of cardboard between each of the layers to add dimension, and taped it to the background paper with double sided foam tape.

 I applied Prima Platinum texture paste to 49 And Market paper with a small spatula and a Prima stencil.

I attached the flowers first with double sided foam tape. I added the beads, then the paint.

I painted the chipboard with First Blush Inklinz. I added gold or aqua mica powder to some, the blue paint is Peacock Plume Shimmerz. To most I added a thick coat of Ranger Clear Rock Candy Crackle.

I painted the mat and corrugated with Penny 4 Your ThoughtsPink- A-BooSteely Blue Eyes and Peacock's Plume.

On the background paper I used Pixie Dust Blingz, Dear John Letter, Steely Blue Eyes, the Peacock color, Pink A Boo, and Penny 4 Your Thoughts.


To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter, clear acrylic rhinestones,glass beads, pearls,rhinestones,swarovski crystals,glass hearts,pressed flowers,iridescent wrapping paper,fussy cut images from Graphic 45 and the Botanist's Sticker Anthology, gold leaf,tulle,sisal,cheesecloth painted with Christmas Cheer Shimmerz ,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz,and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets and Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. 

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!

Love My Girl | February Color Kitz | Niki Rowland



Hi everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) and I have a new layout and process video to share today using the February Color Kitz. The Kit contains five colours of Shimmerz Paints: Cloud Wine Vibez, Age Before Ruby Colouringz, Pink a Boo Inklingz, Angel Wings Shimmerz and Gold n Roses Blingz. These colours together are one beautiful combination!! 


The Kitz also contains a set of three Dotz, a diamond stencil and an exclusive cut file. The cut file is a set of flowers and they are gorgeous! I started off by applying Putting on the Glitz Dazzlerz texture paste through the stencil onto a white marshmallow background. Once dry I applied Angel Wings and Pink a Boo colours over the top. This really highlighted the stencilling and gave a lovely texture. I added lots of splatters in the different colours to the background too. 


I cut the cut file several times in different sizes. I then painted these using four colours: Cloud Wine Vibez, Age Before Ruby Colouringz, Pink a Boo Inklingz, and Gold n Roses Blingz. When they were dry I decided to back them with vellum for a really soft pretty look. 

I arranged my two photos onto my layout with all the painted cut file flowers in a horizontal design. I added fussy cut butterflies from the Cocoa Vanilla Unforgettable collection and then added in two of the Dotz from the Color Kitz: the one with a flower on it and another with an '&' sign. I added a few pieces of ephemera and also some cute perspextives by Bramble Fox: Lovely Mail. These were letters with hearts and cute! I also added a perspextive, the word 'love', for my title and extended the title with alphabet stickers, so the title reads 'love my girl'.


I added wood veneer letters (mail) to my layout which I painted with Pink a Boo Inklingz - I love how Shimmerz Paints go on to wood shapes so well!

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed this layout and video. Don't forget that if you place an order via the Shimmerz Store, put my name in the comments to receive a freebie.

Happy scrapping
