Pearlz meets texture

When creating this layout with the Teresa Collins Shimmerz Pearlz collection colors, I decided to try a new technique. I love the look and the feel of texture paint, which you can find in any hobby or craft store in the paints section. It's really fun to play with, all you need to do is have a stencil on hand that you want to use, fill in the stencil with the texture paint and then let it set for several hours before coming back to it. I decided to let mine sit over night and then come back to it, because I knew immediately that I wanted to paint over the top of the textures I created with my Pearlz! I love how each swirl has different textures, because it really adds to the Pearlz and creates such unique and fun look to the page! I also went ahead and colored some chipboard with the Pearlz which really gives such a rich and creamy look to the chipboard. Finally, I painted in some open spaces on the journal spot made by Prima, because I just couldn't resist to continue to play with my new goodies! I am telling you ladies, these Pearlz are AWESOME and the colors are just so gorgeous in person!


Here are some close up shots which show in better detail how yummy these colors are:

The new Teresa Collins Shimmerz Pearlz are so beautiful, so pearlescent, creamy and much more opaque than the normal Shimmerz - and they are so much fun to play with! I guarantee that you'll love them too!
