Project life with Felicity

Hello. Felicity here today.

I am always fascinated with Shimmerz. Not just there sparkle and versatility, but how good a little shimmerz can make a project.

If you follow my personal blog or my instgram feed, you will see that  I am completing the #the100dayproject.

Products used: Spritz: Ruby / Colouringz Oh say can U Sea and no yoking 

Heres a few project life cards and a spread with shimmerz.

Dont you think that touch of shimmerz looks pretty?

You dont have to try and do big and wonderful things with Shimmerz. You know what, pop over to the Shimmerz You Tube channel, and try a few those techniques from the designers.
Then the cardstock that you experimented on, chop it up and use it for your project life cards.

Easy peasy!

Textued mixed media card with Beck BT

Hey everyone its Beck BT here again with another card, and this time I have had fun creating loads of texture on this mixed media card with some different Shimmerz products!

I added some stenciling to the background with some texture paste and  and allow to dry
Then I added a layer of ‘She Packs a Punch’ Inklings to the background sporatically.
  I then coloured up the chipboard leaf branches with the Vibes Before Dawn spray and adhered them along with the flowers and some lace to the card background.
To give the sentiment some more texture I used the Tickle me Turquoise Shimmerz dry and then apply a layer of Texturez in Crushed coral, drying with a heat gun to help the colour below to show through a little and adhere to the card

Lastly I added some splatter by watering down a little of the Tickle me Turquoise Shimmerz and adding splatter with a paint brush.

Shimmerz Products used

Shimmerz Paintz Inklings ‘She Packs a punch
Shimmerz Paintz Vibez in ‘Before Dawn’
Shimmerz Texturez in 'Crushed Coral'

Silly Shenanigans with Missy

Hey, Shimmerz fans!  Missy back with you, and I have a new layout to share using five different Shimmerz products.  I love mixing and matching all the different types of watercolors on my layouts, and for this one, I used Aqua Huez, Creameez, Shimmerz, Inklingz and Spritz.

I began with selecting the papers I wanted to use.  I pulled an old Recollections paper pad from Michael's I bought over a year ago.  I challenged myself to use up some this stash, so that's what I did.  I created the word "shenanigans" in my Silhouette software and backed it with papers from the pad.  Those fun letters are from The Cut Shoppe.  I created a curvy design and then welded them together.  Since my pictures are of Paige being extra silly, this title seemed fitting.

I used some gesso on the white cardstock before adding a mixture of green watercolors.  I used the plastic packaging technique and some bubble wrap stamping.  (I did a Shimmerz Shortz on that technique last week).  I used a blend of Aqua Huez Green With Envy, Creameez Lettuce Get Together & Shimmerz Jilted Jade.  I used Inklingz Good as Gold on the bubble wrap.  You can see how I did all of that in my process video down below.

I used some Spritz Caribbean Sunset and a stamp to create these hearts.   I just sprayed the Spritz onto some plastic and dipped the heart into it and stamped it on white cardstock.  Once they dried, I fussy cut them out and used them as embellishments.  Since I only had the paper pad for this layout, I needed to create my own embellishments.  This is a great way to use your Shimmerz to do that!

I did pull a few gold stickers from a MAMBI sticker book and a few flair buttons from my stash.  I love how the hearts look layered together like this.  They were so easy to make!  You can also see all the different shades of green and gold here.

I wanted to try and use all the colors from my papers on my background.  I love how the greens and gold look together!  I decided to curve my journaling to match the curvy title.

I punched these small hearts out of patterned paper to create this little heart strip.  Again, that's another idea for making your own embellishments.

Here's one more close up of all that pretty Shimmerz goodness!  Don't you just love the variety of colors and finishes?  There really is something for everyone's taste.

Here's my process video.  I will share with you how I created this layout from start to finish, so I hope you check it out and get some fun ideas!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Products Used:
Aqua Huez--Green With Envy
Creameez--Lettuce Get Together

Canvas Card with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans! Today I have a fun project. It is a canvas with a twist. I have attached cardstock on the back so it is a Canvas Card.
The canvas is covered with Truffle Spritz and Well Blue Me Down Coloringz. I have used a light mist of water to make the colors blend together. After that was dry I did some masking with Tidy Widy Texturez.

After all the embellishments were on the Canvas Card, I added some drips of Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Blue My Mind Inklingz! I love how they blend on the seashells.

On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes at checkout) and Stacey will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration! Take care and happy scrapping!

Bible Journaling- Psalm 100:2

Good morning! Stephanie here, to share my most recent bible journaling entry with you today.
If you remember my post from last week these first two images will look very familiar, since I used some of my left over papers that I had painted then.

However just incase you missed that post, I wanted to make sure I included these so you could still see a bit of my process of how I created my background.

When I am trying something out for the first time, I always like to make an extra or two so I can have more options to create with if one doesn't turn out like I had planned. In this case my extra piece turned out to be exact what I needed for my next project.

For this entry I chose to do it based on Psalm 100:2 which says: "Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy." This verse just makes me so happy! I came across it the other night as I was reading my son his little bedtime devotional and couldn't wait to sit down and do something with it. Lately it hasn't felt very easy to come joyfully, so this was a beautiful little wake up call reminder.

to make my background I simply added some dash make with my Pitt pen to the brush strokes that were already on my paper. I didn't want to cover up too much of the pretty Shimmerz colors so I just added a few here and there.

I finished it off by adding the words from the verse with some white letter stickers that I outlined with maker, I also added in some phrase stickers to the left of the column to highlight my feelings. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day!
