Shimmery Fun

Hi Guys! Jeni here with a fun way to Shimmerz up your Halloween Decorations! For this project I started out with a plain white foam base from the local craft store. I used a craft knife to cut out a bit of the center to make a base for my candle. I covered the base with a couple coats of Gesso so that I could use Spritz on it after I added Party Spider Webs, then...the fun part....I Spritzed Licorice over it to make it really stand out.
Next I distressed my purple candle making scratch marks all over it and used 2 or 3 different shades of Purple Shimmerz to really make it Sparkle! I glued down the candy corn and pained it with pumpkin shimmerz as well as pixie dust blingz. ;) Wrapped a piece of Glitz Design Halloween Paper around the base and added a funky little spider I made using Black Pipe Cleaners. The Head of the Spider is a Bottle Cap with a Sticker on it, and Fun Little Wiggle Eyes.

This Layout is a little crazy, but I love the fact that Shimmerz can be used as Make Up to dress up a photo!!

Here I used Pink Poinsettia Blingz to add fake "lipgloss" and "eyeshadow" to my photo. ;)
.....and don't forget to Show us your Pink.....check out this post and help support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
