Shimmerz Backgrounds with Shona


Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have 2 projects to share with you. A fun canvas and oversize tag.
 
 

The background on the canvas has been covered with Gesso and than I applied some Shimmerz in Royal Purple and Sea Foam Spritz. I have let both colors drip and run on the background and sides of the canvas.
 
 

Here are some close up of the background swirls of yummy Shimmerz colors. The chippys and metal butterfly are all covered with Gesso and sprayed with some Sea Foam Spritz, I love to use my Shimmerz to co ordinate my project pieces.  



Next I have an oversize tag to share. To start I have used some packaging for the back of the tag, added some layers of torn paper strips, applied some gesso and sprayed some Sea Foam Spritz on it. Add a wee bit of water to the sprayed sections and twist and turn the tag to get the desired drips you like. I than used a mask to create the black on the background with some fun Licorice Stick Dazzlerz. Dazzlerz and Texuturez are my go to media’s for masking and adding texture to my projects.

Selfie- by Keren Tamir


Welcome to another colourful month with Shimmerz.
I just love the bright, colourful and shimmery look of the Shimmerz Products.


To start the background, I used some Dreamsicle Dazzlerz paint to mask the chevron pattern down the page. Once dry, I sprayed some Chikadee yellow over some of the background.


I used some Mandarin Mai Tai and Bamboo Leaf to make paint splatters in the background. I simply removed the nozzle from the top and just randomly splattered ink directly from the bottle. The more ink fell, the larger the splatters became.


The chipboard circles wer painted in both Peas Be Mine and Green with Envy after being primed with gesso.


Remember to join in the Shimmerz Facebook Challenge during April for your chance to win even more Shimmerz!!!


and..... if you want to order from the Shimmerz Store, you should mention my name. You will then get a free Shimmerz product.


Have a wonderful day!!

Shimmerz Mixed Media Card


Hi Crafters :)

Today I am sharing a mixed media card I made for Shimmerz. I have been making bright color projects for a while and I feel like change up the color tone a little bit. This card is not really dark colored, but it is not my usually bright color style. And I just LOVE how it turned out!!! 

Those beautiful flourishes are just cut outs from my spellbinder dies. Those little flower trims are from prima. Of course, like always, tons and tons of Shimmerz product are used here. 

This card is really easy and fast to make. If you don't have much time to craft but still have that crafting crave, this is perfect for you. Also, don't forget to mention my name for a free product :))) 

Product List:
--Shimmerz: Angel Wings, Candlelight
--Coloringz: No Yoking
--Dimensionz: Streets of Gold, Blueberry Hill, Tauping You'll Call,

I have a start-to-finish video on how I made this card and it is here:


 I painted the flourish with Shimmerz Candlelight to give more shine and more dimension. Hope you can see the super yummy shimmerz on there.


I applied some Dimensionz in color Tauping You'll call onto the background, and before it dries, i put some wood hexagon pieces on there. So after it's dried, the wood pieces are also adhered onto the card.


Thank you sooo much for looking!!!
Stay Creative <3

Texture and Color...



Hi everyone! It's Iris again here for Shimmerz and I'm sharing once again a layout I built on a white watercolor paper as base. I used a die-cut shape and used it as a stencil and applied texture pastes over it. I then lifted the stencil and let the mediums on top of it dry as well so I can use the same as an additional textured embellishment for the page.




The Shimmerz products I used here are:
Vibez Jeni B. Bleu, Sunset Strip, RazzelDazzel Berry
Coloringz No Yoking

Happiness is adding color with Shimmerz


Hello Shimmerz Fans! Yippee Spring has finally arrived in my part of the world…and that was one long Winter..YUCK! So today I have a layout to share that is bright and cheery and reminds me of Spring time.
 
 

The background is layers of the collection papers with some dabs of Shimmerz Pink and Pearlz Blue By U. I have dabbed some gesso on the areas with a wet wipe after the paint was dry to soften the colors more and blend them in a bit.
 
 

After I completed all my layers on the layout I tucked in some chippys that are finished with Vibez Before Dawn..the coverage is perfect on chippys. I then added some splats and drips with Shimmerz Pink and Magenta amd some Pearlz Blue By U. That is it…I love adding color to my creations with Shimmerz products.
 
 

Don’t forget to come play along on our Facebook page for your chance to win some Shimmerz goodies to play with! It does not get any easier than this!

Happy Sunday!

Hi, hope your weekend is going well :)  I am stopping by today with a new Shimmerz creation. Something beachy today..........
 
Shimmerz products used:
 
Vibez in Jeni B Bleu
Spritz in Sapphire and Mango Madness
Coloringz in Madarin Mai Tai
Shimmerz in Ultra Marine
 
 
 
"Chasing Seagulls"
 
 

 
 
I have used lots of Prima products and shells which the Shimmerz compliment so well.  These blue's are my favourite's to create with, if you didn't notice!!  I love the vibrancy to them, but also very calming.
 
 


 
 
 
I applied a mask with some modelling paste to give loads of texture and then blended the blues together.
 
 
 

 
 
I love how the colours blend into the shells, which I applied Gesso to first.
 
 
 




I also added a plastic pocket with little shells, cheesecloth and sequins.  I then applied some Madarin Mai Tai down the side.
 
 
 


 
 
Have a great week :)

Inspire - canvas

Hi all!

Today I want to share a canvas called -inspire-. 
Totally inspired by all the lovely blue colors from Shimmerz!

For this canvas I used the following Shimmerz products:

Vibez: Jeni B Blue
Coloringz: Mama Sings the Blues
Texturez: Teal me no lies
Texturez: Patina

For the background I again used my favorite technique: 
Glueing some pieces of paper towel with gesso.
This will give your project some awesome texture!
Painted randomly with all the blue colors and 
sprayed some water to let it blend in with each other.

The word 'inspire' was cut out with my cricut machine.
Cut it three times and glued them together.

The flowers and butterflies were also painted with the Shimmerz.

Painted a piece of white cardstock with the Texturez, Teal me no lies.
Then I punched out the butterflies.


Hope this canvas inspired you to work with these gorgeous Shimmerz as well!!
If you place a Shimmerz order make sure you add my name in the 
"Instruction to Merchant" space and you will get a FREE sample
sized jar of Dazzlerz or Texturez or a full sized bottle of Dimensiouz of your color choice.

Enjoy your day!

Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout For OUAS


Hi Friends :)

Today I am sharing a layout I made for Once Upon A Sketch. As always, we have all kinds of fabulous prize. Come check us out and play alone~!

 This little dove in the picture is a poor dove my honey and I found in a public garage. She is stumbling and running into cars and walls. We saw blood on her head, so we decided that we needed to help her. Since she is not walking fast, we caught her and took her home for a night. Gave her food and water, covered her little cage with towel so it's dark there and she will feel safe. The next day we sent her to a wildlife organization so she can get treatment. The vet told us her head skin is totally separated from her head. It's the dry blood that is adhering the skin to the head.

This is not a huge event, but this really changed how I look at helping others. Just like my title, everyone needs love. Had we not caught this dove, she would have died. So now I pay more attention to my surroundings and those who need help.
I carved the square pattern stamp. You will see it in the video, it's the pink color stamp. I used prima's sunrise sunset paper for the layering. And of course, I used TONS of Shimmerz Product. I just love how Shimmerz Product makes everything so beautiful and vibrant ;)

Here is the start-to-finish video. Products used are listed in the beginning of the video.






Thank you so much for looking :))

Stay Creative <3

"Heartbreaker"

Hi Shimmerz fans!  Stacey here to share with you a new creation using the following gorgeous colour palette!!!!
 
 
Vibez in Jeni B Bleu and Blue Jeans
Spritz in Mango Madness and Ruby
Dimensionz in Blue Lagoon
 
 
 

 
Awww, my little baby boy.......just starting to become a little poser, he is so adorable (yes, I am biased but it's true ;) 
 
"Heartbreaker"
 
 





I always try to blend my embellishments to the Shimmerz products I used. 
Lots of flicks also with the nozzle.
 





 
 
The Dimensionz in Blue Lagoon fit perfectly with this colour palette and really brought out Mason's blue eyes.  I applied some in dots and also applied it more thickly and then ran a paintbrush through it to give it a dripped look.
 
 
 


 
I have applied the Vibez to the resin heart. 
 



 
I made an bow and arrow out of florist vine......love it :)
 



 
Look at the Shimmery colour when added to the patterned paper.
 



 
 
Hope you all enjoyed my sweet creation and have a great week ahead!
Thanks for stopping by xo
