Mixing it up!

For today I would like to share with you a little experiment that I did using different Shimmerz products on my layout. With Shimmerz, the effects is endless that is why I recommend everyone to play with it.

I have used My Scrapbook Nook's February kit on this layout featuring BasicGrey's Origins Collection.

Background Paper: Watercolor paper
Patterned Papers: Basic Grey Origins
Alpha: Basic Grey Chip Alphabets and Bella Blvd
Paint: Shimmerz, Spritz and Blingz
Chipboard: Basic Grey Origins Chip Stickers
Stickers: Basic Grey Origins Element Stickers
Flowers: Prima Marketing Hydrangeas
Others: buttons from my stash and Basic Grey Memo pad journaling spot


Since I will be using a thick amount of paint, I decided to use watercolor paper for my background paper. I first sprayed the middle part with Shimmerz Tuscan Sun Spritz and dropped a few amounts of Blingz and Shimmerz (Gold Glimmer, Golden Wheat, and Key Lime) randomly on my background paper. I gave it a few minutes to dry but I made sure that it is not fully dried. Afterwards, I started blotting the paintbrush on the paints to spread the color. This will create a textured like background and the blending is just magnificent.


And of course, ever since I discovered the lovely effect of Spritz on flowers, I added a little amount of Tuscan Sun Spritz on my Prima hydrangeas to make it shimmery.

So don't hesitate to experiment and mix match those Shimmerz products. Play and have fun! The effects are endless and it will make your projects more artistic and special. Feel free to share with us your discoveries.

Thanks for dropping by
