Shimmerz Mixed Media Card By Song

Hi friends :)
Today I want to share a mixed media card I created for Shimmerz. I realized that I haven't shown my love to those gorgeous yummy shimmerz little paint pots for awhile, so I took them out and used them on this card :) The super beautiful color and creaminess reminded me how much I love them. 

Hope you like it! scroll down for video tutorial.

I did a lot of splattering and even stamped using a splatter stamp. I like the background to have lots of texture :)

Here is the tutorial: 

Product List: 
Shimmerz Paint Pots: Pumpkin, Evergreen
Vibez: Suset Strip, 4 Leaf Clover

cake and card

There is always something to celebrate!
Today I would like to share this cake and card.
Made these cakes before but I can't help myself, they are so much fun to make!

For these projects I used the following paints:
Coloringz: Mama sings the blues
Spritz: Treasured Hymn
Vibez: Jen b blue
Shimmerz: Butter cream
Shimmerz: Tickle me turquoise
Shimmerz: Antique lace

This chipboard cake got 2 coats of gesso before adding the paints.
The horizontal sides got a coat of Glass beads paste from Liquitex.

String of pearls around the circles.

Some prima flowers I had in my stash for a long time.

The Glass Beads paste with a touch of gesso.

The two big flowers and the mini roses were painted with the Shimmerz paints.

Applied the paints and let them run by adding some water.

And here is my card:
Created the background with the same Glass Beads paste.

The chipboard butterfly, from Scrap-Unlimited, got two coats of gesso.

Close-up of the lovely texture.

Enjoy your day!

Those Little Touches with Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans..and Happy Friday to you all! Today I have a layout to share that was also created for a Flying  Unicorn guest spot at Once Upon a Sketch…they have amazing sketches and get me journaling on my layouts. Something I love to do but always seem to forget! This is me, my daughter and her mother in law ..having a great time! I tend to always use some Shimmerz products on my creations…sometimes I  use a lot... and other times it just seems to finish off the project perfectly by adding little bits here and there.

I added some Shimmerz Key Lime,  rubbed on with my finger here and there to highlight some areas.

I just love to add droplets of Inklingz after I am done my layout. Here I used some I’m Not Limon and Sun Kissed.
One more close up of the yummy shimmery lil droplets. Don't you just think a little bit here and there just adds so much to finish this project off!!  

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

We haved moved in to our home a year ago but most of our walls still remain bare. I decided that it is time to make some bigger sized canvas frames for our walls and I started with this photo of my adorable Nicole when she was just four years old. 

Look how the Texturez adds so much detail and texture on the project. I used the "Sandy Stone" colour here...

and the Tidy Widy here on a stencil...

and on top of a cut file I made on my silhouette machine...

Above all else, guard your heart with Amy Prior

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all today with a canvas that I have created using so many Shimmerz products. From Shimmerz to Dimensionz, Dazzlerz to Inklingz, this canvas is packed full of it all and full of gorgeous color. To start this canvas off, I have covered the background with various shades of Shimmerz, Inklingz, Dimensionz & Dazzlerz paints. Full list of colors I have used are below.

There was no real method to the madness, I just wanted to get lots of different colors and textures onto my background as a starting point. I have then added some Dazzlerz paints over the top of 2 stencils to add pops of interesting contrast and more color and texture. When I was adding the Dazzlerz, I was not afraid to let the colors mix a little to create fun marbling patterns in the stencilled texture.

When the Dazzlerz was dry, I have added lots of black to the canvas by simply rubbing my Archival Ink Pad in black over the entire surface and concentrating on pressing harders on the edges and corners to define a sort of border. Next I have added some Inka Gold Rub N Buff over the the texture randomly to bring some metallic color back into my background.

The next step was to add some Good as Gold Inklingz to this gorgeous Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame and then adhere this as well as lots of gorgeous flowers to the canvas. To finish off my flower clusters, I have added some Flourish with a Bling Black Rhinestone flourishes as well as some Blue Fern Studio Chipboard butterflies that were colored with Dimensionz paints.

The final addition for this canvas was a favorite bible verse of mine using some American Crafts Thickers and then finished off with some Inka Gold Rub N Buff to bring the gold into the centre a little more. 

Shimmerz Productz Used Include...
Inklingz in Beets Me, Good as Gold, Giddy About Green, Sun Kissed, Meet Me @ Sunset, Pink-a-Boo, Blue My Mind, I'm Not Limon, Gosh Garnet, 
Dimensionz in Blue Lagoon, Witchy Poo, Streets of Gold, Copperhead, Green Thumb, Red Rover, Orange You Pretty & Pumped Up Purple,
Dazzlerz in Sour Apple, Licorice Stick, Pucker Up Pink, Dreamsicle, Lemon Drop, Grape-Tastic, Gumme Bear Blue, Jelly Bean Green,
Shimmerz in Celery, Wed Wagon, Key Lime, Tickle Me Turquoise, Pink, Royal Purple & Sunny.

Don't forget that you can purchase all these items direct from Shimmerz Retail Store here. To receive a bonus free sample, enter my name in the Comments to Seller section when checking out through Paypal.

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!

I just adore these products and can not say enough good things about them all! Today I have a layout to share of me and my new puppy Olaf…he is so funny and cute and sits there while I scrap away and picks and chews at what ever I drop on the floor. I created the background with some masking and then I added some Pop Art Pink Vibez and let it drip.

The title letters are finished with a shot of Hot Fudge Vibez…I love all the Shimmer on them!

After the layout was complete I added some drops of Pink a Boo Inklingz, Pink Shimmerz and Coffee Shimmerz.

It's time for Shimmerz!!

Playing with Shimmerz paints.....well I just love every minute!
This clock was just so much fun to make!
My last post was a dress form in similar colors and these two are now proudly standing in my bedroom.

This wooden clock got a first coat of gesso.
I glued some paper towel with Mod Podge on different places.
Once dry, I applied some text with modeling paste using a template, on the flat spots.
Give all of this a last coat of gesso before adding the colors.

For this clock I used the following paints:
Vibez: Razzel Dazzel Berry
Vibez: Grape Escape
Vibez: Jeni B Blue
Inklingz (metal); Tarnished Treasure
Inklingz (pearl): Beets me
Shimmerz: Tickle me turquoise
Shimmerz: Royal Purple

Right side.
Here you can see the effect of the painted paper towel.
Applied some touches of gesso to get a better sight of all that texture.

Left side.
Text template and modeling paste.
Watered the colors to let them run a bit.

And of course all of the flowers were also painted with the Shimmerz paints!

Some text on top.

Loving these colors together and the yummy texture!

If you want to play with all of those yummy colors and paints, please remember that if you order and mention my name, you get one Shimmerz product for FREE!! 

Enjoy your day!
