Hey There Tiger | Shannon Allor

 Hello friends!  It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this whimsical layout featuring my hubby making a face at me on a day date.  I just adore how Shimmerz Paints always match the latest and greatest collections!


I used Inklingz in Lover’s Lips and Blue My Mind and Creameez in Dandy Lion.  I used a nice coat of clear gesso and then went in with my three colors.  I made sure to leave brush strokes and splatty bits for interest.  Next, I grabbed an stencil from my stash and mixed each of my colors with a little Molding Paste to lighten the color and add a bit of dimension.


I love how the Amy Tangerine diecuts create such a great contrast on the mixed media.  I layered a bunch of them up and then used just a couple sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps to finish off this title cluster.


Look at how much variation you can get in a color with some splatty bits and molding paste.  Here you can see that I made sure that my diecuts have extra dimension with a bit of foam.  I was able to tuck in an adorable little flair from Scrappin’ Happy Studio under the banner piece.

A Special Present | June Color Kitz| Sara Scraps

 Hello Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the summer...soaking it all in! I have a new layout to share with you featuring this month's Color Kit! I just loved the color palette in this month's kit so I used all the products to create a background! 

I started with the sprays, creating large painted stripes across the page. 
I then practiced some mark making using the Creameez colors in the kit. 
I used the Creameez colors to "dip" some of the watercolor die cuts and used them to create some clusters.
I stitched the die cuts into place using embroidery thread. And then added some more thread under my flair for some texture. 

Products Used- 

I have a process video on my channel to share with you as well with my whole process!

Have A Lovely Day!
Sara

June 2021 Color Kitz | Brianna Lepper

Hey friends! Brianna Lepper back again with a brand new layout using the stunning June 2021 Color Kitz!  For $25.99 + shipping, here's what you get in the kit!

Sapphire Spritz
Elfin' Magic Vibez
Strawberry Fieldz Creameez
Great Fruit Creameez
Powder Puff Spritz * New Color*
1 exclusive  "Sunshine in My Pocketcut file created by Shimmerz Paints. Available in JPEG, SVG and PNG format in a zip folder.
1 set of "Oh My Heart" Dotz
1 set of 4 customizable watercolor journaling cards

This kit has so many beautiful colors that are perfect for all of your Summer photos!  Here's my layout: 


To start, I sized and cut the cut file out on a piece of white textured cardstock.  I cut it again making sure to offset the inside pieces to the letters so that I could paint each one and immediately back the cut file with them.  I like to use this method when backing cut files with mixed media.  It really saves time in the end!  Once everything was cut, I started applying all of the colors from the kit onto the letters.  I wanted to paint the "sunshine" word in the cut file yellow, so I pulled a Vibez in Mustard Seed from my stash and painted it on.   


I set the letters aside to dry and got to work on my background.  I sprayed on the new Powder Puff Spritz and blended on a bit of the Sapphire Spritz to create a sky kind of look.  I sprayed some water to help the colors move and also added in a few splatters.  


I set that aside to dry as well and pulled out the watercolor paper shapes that also come in the kit.  I sprayed/painted on the colors onto my glass mat, added some water and smooshed each piece in the paints.  The butterflies ended up being my favorite because the Elfin Magic Vibez and the Sapphire Spritz are beautiful together!!!


Once everything was finished drying, I backed my cut file with the mixed media letters and popped the entire cut file up on foam tape.  I then adhered it on an angle to my background.  I have been loving the diagonal designs on my layouts lately.  Do you like doing diagonal layouts?  


Next, I got to work on embellishing.  This kit goes with so many of the newly released collections!  I ended up choosing the Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla and adhered some of the patterned papers to two of the corners so that they sandwiched my cut file.  I then took the 3 Dotz from the kit and used them as a starting point for 3 embellishment clusters.  I love adding tangled thread under each one too.  It just adds another element of texture!


Here's another embellishment cluster: 


I layered a few floral ephemera pieces and added in some text stickers and that completed my layout!  I love how this one turned out!


Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that I've inspired you in some way!  If you haven't picked up this beautiful kit yet, make sure you grab one before they sell out!  (they usually do!) Don't forget to add my name in the notes/comments section of your next order to receive a free gift!  To see how this layout came together, check out my process video below.  See you next time friends!

Never Grow Up - June Color Kitz || Natalie Dill

 


Hey friends! Natalie here with some inspo for your June Color Kitz. 

The June 2021 Color Kitz include: 
  • Sapphire Spritz
  • Powder Puff Spritz
  • Elfin' Magic Vibez
  • Strawberry Fieldz Creameez
  • Great Fruit Creameez
  • 1 exclusive  "Sunshine in My Pocketcut file created by Shimmerz Paints. Available in JPEG, SVG and PNG format in a zip folder.
  • 1 set of "Oh My Heart" Dotz
  • 1 set of 4 customizable watercolor journaling cards.
So much product - it's a truly great deal!

I loved using this kit to create a landscape layout. I made a sky and a garden and place a photo of my son in the garden! Find the full process video on my channel.


I applied texture paste for the bottom grass through a stencil from a past Color Kitz collection and for the sky through a phrased Vicki Boutin stencil. I used Ranger matte texture paste.

I then sprayed the Elfin' Magic on the grassy area with a bit of additional water to allow the color to flow through the dry texture.

I used the same technique with the Sapphire in the sky area.


After the areas dried, I went back and added additional splatter.

I coated water color paper with two layers of the Great Fruit and Strawberry Fields creameez. after it dried, I used the papers to die cut multiple florals.


I used the Shimelle Never Grow Up collection to add die cuts and stickers to my page and it matched this Color Kit perfectly!



I hope you'll grab your kit before it's gone! Find it in the Shimmerz store. Mention my name for a free gift with purchase.





xo, Natalie

Smile For The Camera | May Color Kitz | Vicki Boutin

 Hello everyone!

Lorimar here, sharing this gorgeous layout made using the May Color Kitz mixed in with one of Vicki Boutin's collections. It took me only around 20 minutes to make!


I used all the elements from Color Kitz for this layout. You can purchase the Color Kitz here.
I began with a white sheet of cardstock as a base and visually divided the layout by spraying the purple tones from the Kitz on the left side of the layout, and the green on the right side. I always like to balance out my colors within a layout so I added the yellow-striped acetate on the left-hand side and placed the cutfile (as is) on the right-hand side. After placing my picture right in the center using some craft foam for dimension, I sprinkled a few embellishments from a Vicki Boutin collection, and the Dotz and flowers from the Color Kitz. Finally, to tie everything in, I splattered each of the colors from the Kitz all around the layout.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope to have inspired you on your next creative adventure.
Take care,
- Lorimar
