Shimmerz and Journaling
Are you a lettering junkie like me? I love playing around with my writing. One of my favorite techniques is to emphasize certain words by filling them in with Shimmerz. On Moments Together, I wrote the outline of the word wonder and filled it in with Sky Blue Shimmerz.
Here is a close-up so you can see the gorgeous iridescent quality of Shimmerz. It almost looks like the word glows from within!
Materials: Shimmerz Sky Blue, Shimmerz Spritz Mudpie; Martha Stewart glitter and glue pen; My Little Shoebox papers and overlays; Sharpie pens; Uniball signo white pen; Tim Holtz mask
Another technique that I employed on this layout is spritzing. Using Mudpie, I spritzed my background paper (My Little Shoebox) and a Tim Holtz mini-mask. Then to give that masking more oomph, I outlined it with silver glitter. This may be one of my new favorite techniques!
