Last Minute Gifts...

Caught up in the Christmas rush? Here are a few ideas on some last minute gifts. If you are like me who hate to rush into the mall during peak season to get some last minute gifts, then you might find some easy and quick ideas on making something you can give as a gift.

These canvas photo frames are made from a canvas board sized 9 x 12 inches. I simply coated the base with gesso, let it dry then sprites Gimmerz mists in colors of "Egg Noggin", "Don't Citron Me", "Pink Stilettos", and "Jeni B Bleu".

To add the embossed white patterns, I just mixed some gesso with the texturez "Widy Tidy" and spread it on top of a stencil.

Happy holiday crafting everyone!!

Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Hi friends :D

Today I am sharing an art journal page for Shimmerz. On this page, I went heavy with beautiful blue colors with a touch of coral. I added different layers of blue colors and added a bit of black color for adding depth to the color. 

I painted the background using Dazzelerz. Not only they are perfect texture paste, but awesome for using as paint as well. Then I stamped on the dried background and applied some gesso for more distressed look.

Product used on this art journal:
Dazzelerz: Sea U In The Mornin' , Coral Me Crazy, Licorice Stick
Shimmerz: Marigold, Ultra Marine, Tickle Me Turquoise
Inklingz: I Love You Onxyly
Vibez: Jeni B Bleu,
Spritz: Sapphire
Coloringz: Well Blue Me Down

Don't forget to mention my name at checkout in "instructions to the seller" for a free inklingz :)
Scroll down for video tutorial.


Thank you for looking :)
Stay Creative

Merry Christmas!

I absolutely LOVE to receive cards from friends. . . especially when they use Shimmerz!!!!  This adorable little snowman was given to me by my dear friend Deana.  She used Inklingz to jazz up his scarf, buttons, arms, and the blue background.  Then to really make him shine, she used Snowbuddies Bizness Dazzlerz (from her free holiday set) on his round, snowy body.
This handsome little snowman makes me smile overtime I look at him.  He is just adorable!!!  Thanks Deana!!!

You can find Dazzlerz and Inklingz HERE

Don't forget. . . .mention your favorite Shimmerz Designer in the INSTRUCTIONS TO MERCHANT section when you order.  We will send you a FREE jar of INKLINGZ!

A baby Gift, Sweet Shimmerz Nursery clock.

Hi Shimmerz fans. 

 Lydell back with you today with a project I have been working on for my step sisters new little one. I wanted something special with her Birth details on it and something pretty for her room. This is what eventuated!

I painted a frame in acrylic, and drew on the sleeping girl and painted her base colours in acrylic paint.

next I went over it all in matching Shimmerz Paints (Shimmerz in the paint pots)

I painted the things that could do with some shimmer, and added shading details with the colours in other areas.

and in the clouds....

India Ink painted on the sides

and her birth details down one side.

I painted the quote on ...."Let her sleep for when she wakes she will move mountains." 
I thought that was a beautiful quote for a little girl's nursery!

......add the clock parts and She is ready to give away!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas Shabby Chic Style

I LOVE to make Christmas cards.  This year I'm all about the Shabby Chic look.  So I made a Christmas card that was anything but traditional.  I used Pop Art Pink Vibez on some Petaloo flowers.  Pop Art Pink is one of my favorites.  That peachy, golden pink is so yummy!  Then to add that shimmery vintage look to all my papers, I sponged Spotlight White Inklingz over each layer.

 You can find Pop Art Pink Vibez and Spotlight White Inklingz here.  I would love to see your Christmas cards or any other project you are making with Shimmerz.  Please feel free to share them on the Shimmerz Paints Facebook page.

Also remember to mention your favorite Shimmerz Designer in the INSTRUCTIONS TO MERCHANT section when you place your Shimmerz order.  We will send you a FREE jar of Inklingz!!! Pin It

Wedding Canvas

Hi everyone! Just a quick share on a wedding canvas I recently made. The size of the canvas is 14 x 18 inches and the background was layered with gesso and lots of Shimmerz Mists in "Egg Noggin" and "No Yoking". To create the embossed pink floral patterns, I used a stencil and layered some beautiful "Tutti Frutti" dazzalerz on top of it.

I hope everyone will have a blessed Christmas and holiday season filled with lots of love.

Mixed Media Journal Pages with Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans! I am back with another Shimmerz / Hazel& Ruby project! Today I have some journal pages to share…Shimmerz is perfect for those journal pages, and it matched up perfect with the Hazel & Ruby washi tapes and tissue! Here are the products I used.

I applied a collage of the tissue to the jounal pages with some gel medium. After that was dried I did some masking with Spun Sugar Dazzlerz.

Add some of that fabulous washi tape with some stamping in the background,...than add some Vibez Hot Fudge and Shimmerz Sea Foam…such pretty colors and the perfect combo for these boy themed journal pages.

After I added the rest of my embellishments I did some drips and drops in Shimmerz Coffee and Aqua Marine to finish it all off.

One last close up of these yummy products!!! I like to keep my journal pages fairly flat…and Shimmerz products  add enough dimention to allow you to do that.

Shimmerz is a perfect match up with these Hazel & Ruby projects…make sure to check them out on Facebook for lots of inspiration!!!

On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a goodie for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration. Take care and happy Scrapping!

Who Knew. . . . .

My brother is a very talented rock artist.  He carves rocks for members of professional ball teams.  He carves rocks for sportsmen, sports fans, or just the sweet old lady in church that likes his work and would love to have a rock in her front yard.  

He wanted to carve a salmon and needed some shimmery paint.  Soooo, he came to his little sister, and I supplied him with DAZZLERZ.  I had no idea if it would work, but it was worth a try.  It didn't just work, it was beautiful!  Dazzlerz blended and adhered to the rock surface.  He did have to seal it with an acrylic sealer, but look at what a fabulous salmon he made.  Needless to say, he just sold his 2nd salmon rock. I have a feeling there will be many more fish in his future.
