Frame It .. with Shimmerz!

by Carrie Ferrier
Lately I've really been into using my scrapbook supplies to make simple framed art. Shimmerz is a major part of both of my framed pieces I'm sharing today.

On this framed piece, I simply spritzed Shimmerz Vertigre and Barn Door on the background cardstock before I added my word stamps and ribbon. I've been wanting to make this simple framed piece using these word stamps for a long time .. pretty powerful to me. This is in my scrapbook room, and I'm also making several more for Christmas gifts.

 On this framed piece, I wanted to decorate the frame in a simple way that would aid in showcasing the photo of my beautiful niece on her wedding day. I took a plain white prima flower and spritzed it with a combo of Shimmerz Bed or Roses, Baby Breath, a fine spritz of Vertigre, and finished it off with some Barn Door.

I absolutely adore how, with just a little bit of Shimmerz, a project gets that final "oomph" of goodness.
