**How About Some Shimmerz Inspiration**

Hi everyone!! I'm Leslie Ashe & I thought I'd share some inspiration with you...
from Shimmerz! As I was looking at our very own gorgeous Danielle Wycough's blog,
I noticed she had the most  BEAUTIFUL candle holder. I just HAD to share with you!
Not only is she the DT Coordinator here at Shimmerz, she's the mom of 5 precious
children and how she has time to whip out these amazing creations...well, it's beyond me!
Just take a look at this:

Isn't this incredible? She said she found this candle holder in
a thrift store and it was rusty....rusty nothing! She's turned rusty into
a beautiful piece of art. 

a bit close here you can see she's used a new fall vintage release color: 
Vintage Wine. Underneath that she used a ton of crackle paint, acrylic paint,
Wed Wagon (another fall release) and antique lace.  You can see more of her incredible
artwork at her blog:  Danielle Wycough.  She's always SO inspiring and so

AND I just have to show you her layout!

I fell in LOVE with this layout! I love how she took a piece of her cardstock she uses
as a work mat for her other projects and used it as her background! GENIUS!
Just look at the different textures and colors. I could dive right in!

She used all of the new colors here.  Mossy Stone is around her picture and that butterfly is
loaded with Vintage Wine and Mossy Stone.  Isn't it gorgeous!

I also wanted to share with you a couple of projects I've done using Shimmerz:

First up is a layout I did for the Label Tulip kit club.  As you can see, I used a large
butterfly as a mask. I sprayed Eucalyptis all over the brown paper bag and painted the edges
of my layout AND the bag with Tickle Me Turquoise. 

and on this layout I used Coal Shimmerz to paint my apple.  I wanted it to be a bit
brighter so I sprayed Concrete Shimmerz over it.  I LOVE how it turned out.

I also painted my letters. They were originally black. I wanted something
to stand out like my apple did.  I painted the letters coal and sprayed them
with Concrete.

I outlined my apple in Sunflower.  the dots are in Marigold. 

Thank you SO much for letting me share inspiration with you today.
I hope  you have a VERY blessed day!

**Keep looking for inspiration this week from the fabulous Design Team!**
