A Shimmerz Lesson Plan

All right, class, take out your Spritz and Vibez
and let's get to work!

I literally used "scraps" on this layout to represent the detritus of teaching -- bits and pieces that double as telling details to capture the glory and the mess and the wonder and the STACKS that are so much a part of being a teacher.

This layout, as any good education, began with the basics: Shimmerz Spritz and Shimmerz Vibez. I sprayed these over a mask of some goofy hand-gesture paper clips that I've been hoarding for years, as well as over a few pages from a day planner. Never underestimate the scrappy potential of school supplies, I say.

I used a bunch of different Spritz and Vibez colors to create this layout, including Rolling in the Hay, Vertigre, Sea Monkey, 4 Leaf Clover, Sea Foam, Cotton Candy, and Jeni B Bleu. I also used Rolling in the Hay over the wooden letters in the title.

With Vibez and Spritz in hand, it's time for recess -- go play!
