On this particular layout, my daughter Zoe, was feeling tired, worn down and just NOT in the mood for pictures. You know the typical 8 year old who acts 15! I wanted to maintain the mood that I captured in the photograph and used my Shimmerz Vibez to help translate those feelings onto paper: Jeni B Bleu and Grape Escape were the perfect colors to coordinate with my patterned paper and photo.
I found an old Fancy Pants frame that I thought might be fun to spritz and use as a focal point for my photo. I applied mulitple layers of both aforementioned colors until I achieved the look I was aiming for:
After the paint was dry, I added layers of rubon's both on the chipboard frame and on the paper underneath. I was also able to change the color of my chipboard alphas by spritzing them with Jeni B Bleu!
I spritzed my background grid paper which was already had gray and purple tones to it with the same colors and helped make the page a bit more vibrant. After adding my other embellishments, my photo and my journaling, I ended up with a page that was a bit dark and moody but that I love nonetheless:
Just remember, you don't always have to scrap the bright and sunny sides of life and if you decide to go a bit deeper and moodier, than Shimmerz is sure to have the colors for you!
