Enjoy Life and Have Fun | Brandy Vaughn | February Color Kitz

 Hi everyone! I'm back today with another layout using the February kits. I really wanted to get these photos scrapped before the end of the month. 


I began by running a smooth piece of white cardstock through an embossing folder. I cut the pieces down to 5-inch squares and applied my mixed media. I added my first color and let it dry completely before adding my second color. I then let that one dry completely and went in with my 3rd and 4th colors while each was wet. 


When those were dry, I added some machine stitching around the edges and adhered them to black cardstock. Then I fussy cut the flowers from a piece of paper in the kit and used a fine paintbrush and Shimmerz paint to color them in. 



Next, I stamped my title and some leaves with black solvent ink and fussy cut those out. I also chose a Vibes from my stash to color in the leaves. 


Finally, I completed my layout with more embellishments from the kit, and a few gems from my stash, and then backed the whole thing with another patterned paper from the kit. 


I hope I have inspired you to try mixed media on your next layout. Check out the Shimmerz Paints store online to see all of the amazing products. If you purchase, don't forget to add my name, BRANDY VAUGHN to your order for a free paint! You can also view my full process video below. 



Have a lovely, crafty day! 
xoxo
Brandy

LOVE | Sarah Millerhouse | February Color Kitz

I am so very excited to share this layout featuring the beautiful Shimmerz Paints February Color Kitz! I love all the pinks and reds in the kitz this month, and I had so much fun creating a monochromatic layout with these colors. Be sure to check out the full process video linked below! 


I started the layout with Foundations mixed media cardstock. I used a Vicki Boutin stencil and ink dauber to add the Creameez - 1 Hot Mama through the stencil. Using the ink dauber helped me control where the color went. 


I then used the same ink dauber, with the Creameez still on it, and added Shimmerz - Buddy's Favorite Color to half of the dauber. With this I stamped circles on the background. I twisted slightly as the dauber hit the page, and this gave me a beautifully subtle swirl of pink and red.

Once those dried, I used the packaging technique to add more color to the background with Coloringz - A Bright Fuscia, Spritz - Taffy Hour, and the Shimmerz! I also splattered on some of the Blingz - Hi Ho Silver (from the February Bonuz Bundle) as a finishing touch to the background. 

While that was drying, I took the black and white flower patterned paper from the February Kitz and added all of the colors to the flowers. I added layer after layer of color until I liked how they looked! I then fussy cut them all out to add to the background. 

Around my photo, I added the flowers and some embellishments from past Hip Kits that coordinated with the colors. I also added white leaves that I cut out with metal dies to the floral clusters. As a finishing touch, I added Pops of Color to the centers of the flowers and in clusters around the page. 

I love how this layout turned out and enjoyed every second of using these kitz!!!

You Are Mine Using the February Color Kitz Bundle


Hey all, Nicole here with my second layout this month using the February Color Kitz Bundle!  I am documenting me and my hubby again, I just can't get enough of him!  The first thing I did was make my back ground by splattering all the colors from the kits.


Next I used paper from the kit and my photo and did my paper piecing.  Once that was down I started my embellishing with the die cuts.


After my die cuts were down, I added some stickers and one of the epoxy dotz.  Then I finished with my journaling!


I'm so happy you popped on here to read about my layout.  I had a lot of fun with this one and just love the way that it turned out!  I also have a process video that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/1zv1GXG6w_w

For The Shimmerz Paints Design Team, Color Is A Power Which Directly Influences The Soul


 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Shimmerz Paints! Go and see all the fun                                                                           treasures there!                                                              






I stenciled Prima Platinum Texture Paste with a small spatula onto watercolor paper. I taped on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat, and  made a mat too. I added  layers of corrugated cardboard. The layer below the mat that's visible I ripped off  some of the paper, poured on UTEE on gesso, and heated it. I taped on flowers, glued on beads and other items, and I brushed on Shimmerz Paints.  I rubbed and brushed on gold and silver mica powder on different areas. 






To add visual interest I added micro beads,seed beads,glass beads,swarovski crystals,acrylic crystals, glass glitter, gold leaf,iridescent wrapping paper,chipboard, tulle, flowers, and bling and metal from my stash. All the images are from Graphic 45 paper. A lot of the items are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. Many of the textural items are from Reneabouquets.







                                                         














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