Favorite place to be by Veronika Senova

 Hello friends!

Today I have for you page in my favorite pink blue combo and beautiful cut file by Handipaper. I scrapped picture of my older girl on meadow close to our home. I don't like playgrounds so much and I'm happy that my girls want to make walks  in nature with me. Of course from time to time we go to playground too, but but meadows and forests are our favorite place to be💙

I started with clear gesso as always, and as it was drying, i was looking for perfect cut file. I have this narrow landscape photo and wanted to create landscape layout in the middle of page. This "Favorite" cutfile with roses fits perfectly to my intentions.

After gesso was dry and my silhouette was cutting cutfile I take out Oakie bear blue  and started work on my background. I totally forgot how gorgeous this color is.  I used just my brush to spread it in middle of page. I add most of color at top and then spread it with water down to have it lighter and lighter. Then I mixed Refreshed mint with Emerald city and bit of water and add it to top of my blue area.

For backing roses from cutfile I put again gesso on white cardstock and use my pinks and reds Shimmerz -  Gold-N-Roses, Crimson Tide, Bahama Mama and Great Fruit. I used each color individually , but also mixed them to create smooth shifts. After it dried i chosed interesting part for each rose and back them. For title i used "wood" paper by Carta Bella. 

After I adhered cutfile to my background paper. I fix also my photo backed with stripped paper with matching colors and tissue paper. Then I started to embellish my layout. I wanted to create meadow feeling so i used puffy and rubbon butterflies and flowers, few enamel dots and gems, and phrase stickers and finished my title with blue puffy  alphas . And that was it :)

I hope you like it and see you next time.

Pro | Shannon Allor

Hello scrappy friends!  It's Shannon up on the blog today bringing a mixed media layout your way using gorgeous Shimmerz Paints.  I love this combination of colors!

Products Used:

Vibez in Blushing Bride

Coloringz in Moody Mauve

Creameez in Thunder Storm

Inklingz in I Love You Onxyly

Vibez in Palm Reader

Vibez in Don't Rain on My Parade

I started this layout taking the Shimmerz Paints inspiration directly from the photo.  My son is wearing a mid-tone gray suit with a deep burgundy check pattern.  Let me tell you how fun it was to shop through my swatch cards to find the perfect tones!  I made sure to use a piece of sturdy Marshmallow cardstock by Bazzill with a nice coat of clear gesso in place.  Next, I wet my cardstock and liberally sprayed with the lighter tones and worked my way towards the deeper gray tones.  This worked beautifully as I gradually deepened my palette.  We all know that it's easier to add than to take away!

Next, I set my layout aside for a bit to dry and started hunting through the Heidi Swapp Carefree collection.  I love the soft gray border that I chose and then incorporated a mix of green, blue and gray embellishments.  I love that the photo stands out so beautifully!

I wanted to make sure that the embellishements were incorporated nicely so I added some splatty bits in Vibez Palm Reader as well as Vibez Don't Rain on My Parade.  I finished off this layout with three adorable Dots to add a bit of shine and dimension!

Happy Scrapping!

Light Up My Life || Natalie Dill || May Color Kitz

 Hey friends! Natalie here using the May 2021 color kitz & they are FABULOUS! Here's my layout:

The May 2021 Color Kitz includes:

  • Sugar Plum Shimmerz 
  • *NEW* Rule of Plum Vibez
  • Daffodil Creameez
  • Lettuce Get Together Creameez
  • Meet Me @ Sunset Inklingz
  • 1 exclusive layered process "Blooming Ideazcut file created by Shimmerz Paints 
  • 1 set of Dotz
  • 1 package of Baby Rosez
For my layout, I used only the cut file outline of the light bulb. I cut it out in an eggplant cardstock. I then stamped some florals and fruits in versamark and embossed them in white atop watercolor paper. I then colored the florals and fruits with all Color Kitz colors.

Find the full process video on my channel!

I also used the Daffodil Creamez and Sugar Plum Shimmerz to dye the 3d roses in the kit.

I then stuck down all the floral and fruits within the bulb and added in some die cut foliage and the dyed roses.

I used a the Daffodil Creameez, Sugar Plum Shimmerz and a dash of Rule of Plum Vibez to create a bit of watercolor splotches outside the bulb area.

I also used them for a few splatters around the photo and title area.

I tucked the Dotz from the Color Kitz around the layout in a visually please triangular shape.

I love using Creameez to splatter because if you do not roll them up, they often dry raised so added texture is a plus!

I had so much fun creating this layout!

Make sure you grab your own May Color Kitz before they're gone.

May 2021 Color Kitz | Brianna Lepper

Hey friends!  Brianna Lepper here with you today and I'm super happy to share my newest layout using the gorgeous May 2021 Color Kitz!  Here's my layout: 

For $27.95 + shipping, this is what you get in this months kit: 
*NEW* Rule of Plum Vibez
Daffodil Creameez
Lettuce Get Together Creameez
Sugar Plum Shimmerz
Meet Me @ Sunset Inklingz
1 exclusive layered process "Blooming Ideazcut file created by Shimmerz Paints 
1 set of Dotz
1 package of Baby Rosez

To start, I cut the exclusive cut file from the kit out on some textured white cardstock and then painted it using Sugar Plum, Rule of Plum and Lettuce Get Together.  This cut file is super intricate so I thought it would pop more if I painted it.  While it was drying, I started working on my background by painting both Daffodil and Meet Me @ Sunset onto a piece of thick white cardstock.  

Next, I popped the entire cut file up on foam adhesive and adhered it down to my background.  The new Vicki Boutin Color Study collection matches perfectly with this kit so I used it to embellish my layout.  

I ended up painting the Rosez using both the purples and yellows in the kit.  They turned out so pretty and shimmery!

I originally just wanted the yellows from the kit to be on my background, but I did end up adding some splatters with the purples.  I also pulled in a Coloringz in Night Moves from my stash to bring in some pops of black.  

After adding in a few fussy cut flowers, my title and a subtitle, I layered in the Dotz from the kit and tangled thread under each one.  

Here's another up close shot!
