Truly Loving the Shimmerz!

Good morning! I'd like to share a project that I created for this week's Creative Therapy catalyst which prompts us to consider when we first fell in love. Inspired by the question, I created this project which includes one of my favorite Bible verses about love:


The base is a black 7 Gypsies Artist Painter's Tray which I was finally able to order, and I since it was the only one I could find at the time, I wanted to make something special with it. I sprayed the black and white text background papers and flowers with Baby's Breath Spritz. I inked the edges of the patterned papers with Before Dawn Vibez and added a hint of Gold Glimmer Blingz to the edges as well for highlighting. I just love how all of the Shimmerz products combine to truly make this project shine!




The fleur de lis chipboard piece was painted black, sprayed with Before Dawn Vibez, stamped with a script stamp and highlighted with copper mica powder.


Finally, I wanted to add a bit of color to the Tim Holtz metal nameplate so I used a sponge to dab on some Penny Pincher Vibez to highlight the scroll work around the nameplate. It turned out beautifully!

I hope that you're inspired to create something that shares your love story, too! Thanks so much for visiting today! Pin It
