happy birthday to you?

I don't know about you, but I seem to have a lot of friends and family that have a birthday this month, so it got me inspired to make a project with a birthday theme.

For this tag, I got out my Shimmerz Spritz in Sea Foam and Olive Branch to make the background on a white tag. I spritzed the tag first with the Sea Foam. I didn't do even coats, because I wanted some spots darker than others. Then, I took the top off of the Olive Branch Spritz, dipped a brush in it, and splattered the spritz liberally leaving spots and drip marks. When it dried, I got a beautiful, shimmery background to work with.

Next, I painted the flowers with Shimmerz in Angel Wings to give it a bit of sparkle.

Then, I added a some patterned paper and embellishments, and voila! A handmade tag, perfect for adding to a birthday gift for your someone special.

Hope this inspires you to get out your Shimmerz Spritz, and try making a beautiful shimmery background for your next project.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
