I am very grateful this year for the many things that I accomplished in my life. I wanted to be able to share how grateful I am through a layout which will go into my "family" album. I had a lot of fun with this layout, and really made the layout shine. I added a mask to the bottom of the page which would become my title area and then I sprayed the rest of the page with my Shimmerz Spritz in Treasured Hymn, Truffles, Rock-a-Fella Blue, and some Licorice. I also sprayed my circles with some Shimmerz Spritz in Treasured Hymn and Licorice. Some other fun things that I am really loving using is that I went ahead and I stamped images onto the page by using my rubber and acrylic stamps with the Shimmerz Paints.
For the butterfly, I edged the acrylic shape with my Shimmerz Hi Ho Silver Blingz, let it dry, and coated it twice. It really give some nice definition to the shape.
For this particular stamped image, before I stamped my image, I created a "wash" with my Shimmerz Vintage Wine by stamping on it and then "rubbing" the image into the paper. It gives such a pretty coloring behind the stamped image. Once that dried, I went ahead and stamped my image onto the circle.
And finally, just a nice close up shot of the stamped images that I spread throughout the page. I did what is known as a "kiss" stamping technique with this because I stamped my first image and then went ahead and kept stamping with the same paint until it was too light to notice. I repeated this twice throughout the layout.
Thanks for stopping by today, and hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
