Doing it the Shimmerz Way!

Creating your own design or patterns is always a fun thing to do. It is personalized and reflects more of you. That is what I did with this layout that I am sharing with you today. I created some butterfly silhouettes by using templates that I did in Photoshop with some Shimmerz products.

For this layout, I used My Scrapbook Nook's February kit with Shimmerz Spritz and Shimmerz.

I first drew a butterfly and then I scanned it. Using Adobe Photoshop CS4, I duplicated the butterfly several times and re-sized them all to different measurements. I printed it out and cutout the butterflies pieces. Using a non-permanent glue tape, I adhered each butterfly on my background paper. I used a combination of Treasured Hymn, Tuscan Sun and Sea Foam Spritz.

Then using the same butterfly templates, I made a 3 dimensional butterfly and sprayed it with Shimmerz Vibez's Sunset Strip and painted some parts with Golden Wheat Shimmerz.

You will definitely love the effects of the Shimmerz products on your layout. You should try it for yourself! With its intense shimmer and shine your layout will look more vibrant and alive. So what are you waiting for?! Start making your own backgrounds. No need to buy masking templates, create your own design. It will be very fun especially using Shimmerz products with it.

Thanks for dropping by!
