Canvas with Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have my Off the Page Project from my Flying Unicorn March kit…it’s the cute little metal bike. I was stumped on what to do with it so I decided to add it to a canvas full of Shimmerz Color! So first thing I did was to add my background flowers and give them a coat of gesso. Next up was the stamping and then its time to play with COLOR!

The Eiffle tower is finished with some Before Dawn Vibez. The background is a mix of Peachy Keehn Coloringz, Pop Art Pink and Sunset Strip Vibez, and Tuscan Sun Spritz. These colors are vibrant and full of color for my background.

I added in some Good as Gold and Sun Kissed Inklingz to add some extra Shimmer to the flowers. I also added some of the new Creameez in Great Fruit and Get Glowing! The names are all so cute!

Finish it all off with drops and splashes of Before Dawn Vibez. This canvas is full of color and just reminds me of Spring time.

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

Amazing - A layout with Karine

Hi there,

Karine here today to share another layout using tons of yummy Shimmerz Paints products.

Here it is.

I started out with a plain white cardstock on which I glued some Tim Holtz tissue paper. I then applied a thin coat of white gesso and modelling paste through a Prima stencil. Next come my favorite part: the colors. I went with a yellow and grey color combo this time. I used Spritz in Tuscan sun and Truffle as well as Vibez in Sunset Strip to color my white background.

Some random stamping in black Archival ink to add texture...

For my chipboard, I wanted to create the look of liquid metal, or something similar. I started out with a coat of Creameez in Ride the Tide, to give a nice blue undertone... On top of it, I stamped with Versamark ink and added embossing powder. To make it match with the rest of the layout, I misted it with my Spritz in Truffle. I LOVE the result!

Sweet Pink Altered Wodden Peg

Hi Shimmerz Peeps,

Katie here sharing another altered project; a big wooden peg...

I bought this peg (not the largest I can find) at one of my local craft store and I've been thinking of doing one many years ago and never attempted one... Finally I attempted and this is what I've created... Added some flourish texture over the peg and blend the colours to give a vintage shabby look... Though the flowers are off-white, I just altered all of them to make them blend together...

This peg will be one piece that I'm going to use it to hold some of my cards or photos...

Hope this has been an inspiration...

Shimmerz product used:
  • Inklingz (Pink-a-Boo, Tarnished Treasure, Misty Morning)
  • Creameez (Berry Hot, Marshmallow
  • Spritz (Cotton Candy)
  • Vibez (Sweet Heart)
Simply mention my name (Katie Zoey Ho) under "INSTRUCTIONS TO MERCHANT" during checkout to receive a FREE jar of Inklingz...

I really love the colors and how easy they are to use.

Here are some close-ups:

I used Shimmerz Dazzelerz - Licorice Stick with a stencil to create the background writing.

The Shimmerz Creameez worked so well on the chipboard butterflies.

Creameez - Luck O' the Irish
Creameez - Great Fruit
Creameez - Daffodil
Coloringz - No Yoking
Coloringz - Oh Say Can You See

A Mono Tonez Mix with Missy

Happy Wednesday, Shimmerz fans!  Missy here.  I'm really excited to share my new layout with you today.  It features the new Mono Tonez collection, which is comprised of silver and grey colors.  I've had this hard-to-scrap photo for a while sitting on my desk.  The lighting in the photo created lots of pinkish & purple shades, and it's just really hard to find any papers and embellishments that match purple.  So I decided to create this background to contrast those difficult colors.

I used a Hero Arts stencil and created a two-toned background with Dazzlerz (Foiled Again) and Texturez (Gritty Graphite).  Next, I added some Creameez (Thunderstorm) and Inklingz (No One's Chrome) and used them like watercolor.  I also added in some beautiful aquas with Shimmerz (Tickle Me Turquoise) and Creameez (Ride the Tide).  The paint splatters are Vibez (Taupe of the Mornin') and Spritz (Taupe of the World).  All of these silvers and aquas meshed so well together!

Here's a look at the bottom cluster.  I used Creameez and Shimmerz to create more of a watercolor effect here.  For me, dabbing it with a paper towel really helps to create multiple tones.  I just layered some Echo Park paper and stickers along with some washi tape, thread and a flair button on top of the color.

The texture created by the Dazzlerz is just awesome...and it's so shiny!  I used the silver Creameez to color that film strip was white.  Love how it turned out!

Here you can see the Texturez...and they do just that....create TEXTURE!  I love the grittiness of it.  I layered my papers right on top and added in my title to the side.

One more look at the beautiful Texturez and the Shimmerz & Creameez on top of it.  These products all work so well together...I just can't get enough of them!

I hope this inspires you to give the Tonez a try...there are several color schemes to play with.  And if you have a hard-to-scrap photo, try creating your own customized background.  This worked really well for me, and I love how all the Shimmerz products came together to make the photo pop!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
