Today I want to share a mixed media scrapbook layout I made using loads and loads of Shimmerz delicious product. The happy man in the picture is my dad. His got scratched on his forehead and for some reason, he found it amusing, lol.
I love using bold and vibrant colors when I am working on a dark background. Because the bold and vibrant colors really contrast the background. I painted couple layers of the Coloringz No Yoking to really get the yellow to be vibrant. And to make it even more vibrant, I painted the area I want the yellow to be white first. So the yellow color really can show its true color.
The paper is of course all from Prima, including the paper strips and paper frames I used for layering. The chipboard circles are from Creative Embellishments. The big yellow flower is from petaloo :)
Today I am sharing an Art Journal page. A little Shimmerz, A bit of hand lettering. A lovely bit of text.
I used Coloringz in No Yolking, and Mandarin Mai Tai
and Spritz in Mango Madness.
You can journal anywhere, In your Diary or Journal, in your Daily Planner, in your Art Journal (of course!!!) This just happens to be in my Bible., But you can use any book at all.
Just prep the surface if need be (I used Gesso here as the pages are thin.) It totally prevents bleeding through.....I mixed in a little Patterned Paper, some Alpha stickers, some letter stamps.....
As always Art Journaling allows you to contemplate, to soul search and let your art out with your thoughts and ideas. It doesn't have to be any particular theme, it can be personal, it can be great song lyrics, it can be just a quote you like.
All in all its a great way to clear your head and be calm! (in my otherwise super busy world!!!)
Created this 14 x 16 Canvas Art for Trisha, the daughter of my husband's colleague - Janet. Happy birthday to a lovely lady who turned 18 today. I used Shimmerz Mists: Coloringz No Yoking and Vibez: Pop Art Pink to lay the base color for the canvas, and then I used Texturez Tidy Widy mixed with some thick Gesso to create the white textured background...
Also, have you seen the new colors for the Coloringz, Dazzelerz, Texturez, and Inklingz?! They are gorgeous!! Go check the on-line store now and make sure to place my name "Iris Uy" on the comments section when placing your order. This will entitle you to a sample sized product for free!
Hello Shimmerz fans! Gabrielle here with you today to share an OTP (Off the page) using a really fun wooden art palette canvas I got in the September kit at Flying Unicorn Kit Club. There were so many cool metal ornaments included in this kit so I went and used these and some of the flowers and Shimmerz mixed media elements included in this kit as well. I also added other colors of Shimmerz paints as well. Here are the Shimmerz products I used in this project:
~Golden Wheat Shimmerz
~Grape Escape Vibez
~Caribbean Sunset Spritz
~Hot Fudge Vibez
~Beets Me Inklingz
~Pugnacious Purple Inklingz
~Me and Blue Inklingz
~ Giddy about Green Inklingz
~Gold Mine Inklingz
~Tarnished Treasure Inklingz
~ Brass Knuckles Inklingz
I recorded a video tutorial on how I made this canvas design, hope you enjoy!
I thought I would share a bunch of close-ups that you can enjoy at your leisure. Above is a close-up of the embellishment cluster, a combination of metal accents, blooms and gems. I gave the whole thing a coat of gesso and then spritzed and painted with Grape Escape Vibez. Last but not least, I dabbed on some Brass Knuckles Inklings to further the metalic look on my embellishment cluster.
I used a variety of stencils....Heidi Swapp Moroccan stencil, Crafter's Workshop 'Art Is' stencil and the Prima 'Sunrise Sunset' Checkerboard stencil to create a textural background on my palette. I then layered on lots of Shimmerz colors to create an 'artsy' looking background.
I chose a quote that I thought would work nicely with the art palette design....'Art is not what you see but what you make others see' ....I used the Tim Holtz alphabet stickers (included in the Flying Unicorn kit mixed with some Webster's Pages alphabet stickers I had in my home stash).
Here is another shot of the embellishment cluster.....I finished the design with a few colorful adhesive gems.
Originally I had planned to use a bunch of large colorful gems as my 'paint colors' but couldn't find them in the size and colors I was looking for....then I came across these 'sugared' gems at a local dollar store and went with these. I used a variety of coordinating colors of Inklingz as a background mosaic design behind the colored gems.
There are a bunch of paint brushes included in the palette set, so I took two of these brushes as accent pieces to my design and 'dirtied them up a bit, giving them a well used look, by smudging on some paint colors before I applied them to my canvas.
I hope you enjoyed today's project!
