Mixed Media Butterfly Card with Beck BT

Hi Everyone, I've been at it creating another mixed media card for you to enjoy and hopefully be inspired.  This one was so much fun to create using divine Shimmerz paints to accent some beautiful stamping.

For my card today I used the follwoing Shimmerz products:

Shimmerz Inklingz - Blue Lagoon
Shimmerz Creameez - Trippin in the Tropics & Get Glowing
Shimmeringz - Tickle me Turquoise & Pink
Blingz- Gold Glimmer
Vibez - Egg Noggin
Texturez - Tidy Widy

The background was created with mixing layers of colour with the Shimmerz 'Trippin in the Tropics' & 'Get Glowing' Creameez followed by splattering some 'Get Glowing' Creameez as well.

For the sentiment I added Shimmeringz to some 2Crafty Chipboard words and dried with a heat gun for a little texture

Shimmerz Texturez in Tidy White was used for some textured stencilling in the background.  Be sure to do your background stamping first as it is always harder to do that over the top of texture.

Shimmerz 'Tickle me Turquoise' and Inklingz 'Blue Lagoon' look beautiful added to the stamped Indigoblu image along with Creamez 'Trippin in the Tropics' and Shimmeringz 'Pink'.

Accenting was created by adding some Creamez 'Get Glowing' to the butterfly as well.

 Thanks so much for heading over to the blog today to check out my project!  I hope I've inspired you and shown you how lovely a little Shimmerz mixed media can be on your sweet cards.

Till next time

Adorable, a pink layout with Karine


Karine here today to share with you my first October layout. 

As for always, I started out with clear gesso all over my paper (a Prima paper, from the Garden Fable collection). I thought the paper was a bit busy, so I painted white gesso, mainly on the diagonal where i was going to paint afterwards. I applied modelling paste through a stencil and was ready to start coloring. I used Coloringz Pink Stilettos and Spritz Ruby to build the pink background that shows around my picture and my embellishments. 

It was already beautiful, but I needed another color to bring more contrast. I then selected my Good as Gold Inklingz, which I added in a few spots around the design. Sadly, the picture doesn't show all the shimmer there is with the Inklingz...

For a little more texture and shimmer, I added a few touches of Shimmerz Magenta and Royal Red, to the right of the picture and below some flowers. I just love the shimmer and the sandy effect we get with the Shimmerz.


You can order Shimmerz products directly from the Shimmerz Paints Store. If you do, don't forget to mention my name (Karine Gagnon) in the «Instruction to Merchant/seller» part of your order form (just below your name and address).

Scrapbooking Mixed Media Tutorial With Irit

Hi! Irit here and I'm so excited to share this layout I created using some gorgeous Shimmerz goodies! Here's my finished layout-

I started with a floral silk screen by Heidi Swapp and my favorite product these days (it's a tough choice!)- some shimmery yummy Dazzlers paste in Coral Me Crazy. It worked so beautifully! Look at the detail you get-

Once the paste was dry I added some watercolors. I used Inklingz in Beets Me (gorgeous shimmery cool pink), and Creameez in Daffodil (lovely yellow), Berry Hot (a brighter cool pink) and Trippin in the Tropics (love this color! It's a pinkish warm red). I applied a couple of layers and also some splatters.
Once these were dry I decided the layout needed some more color, so I used Coloringz in No Yolking (no shimmer bright yellow), Pink Stilettos (hot pink) and Vibez in Mango Tango (again that lovely color, similar to Trippin in the Tropics, it's a warm pinkish orangy red) to amplify the color a bit.

And my background is done! I used papers and die cuts from the new Dear Lizzy Collection called Documentary. The colors I chose coordinate perfectly with the collection!

Here's a video tutorial that shows exactly how I created this layout-

Thanks for visiting! Don't forget to check out the Shimmerz store! Mention my name in the comments to merchant when you place an order and get a free product of your choice! Have a lovely day and I'll be back next month with another shimmery project!

Mixing Dazzelerz and Texturez!

I recently taught an adult coloring class and treated the participants to having the option to add texture to their artworks! They loved the Shimmerz Dazzelerz and Texturez!

We wanted a softer pink with texture so I used the Dazzelerz Tutti Fruti, added a little gesso to lighten the pink, and then added some Texturez Tidy Widy for the dreamy texture!!

It's amazing how you can always customize Shimmerz products to fit your needs!

Products Used: Dazzelerz Tutti Fruti and Texturez Tidy Widy plus gesso

Have a great weekend everyone!!
