Make it a little more alive!

Hi everyone. It’s Naomi here.
Today I would like to share with you how I put a little shiny touch to cut-out flowers and leaves from a patterned paper.
They look pretty as they they are but using shimmerz products they can look a lot prettier!

So here I fussy cut the flowers and leaves from a patterned paper.
I used some of Shimmerz products along with water-based pastels to make them look shiny by adding some colours.

They definitely look more "alive", don't they?

For the cut -out branches and leaves, I used shimmerz coffee colour, too.

I also used the Apricot shimmerz to colour some white flowers.

Some people might think this is all too much, too timid, time consuming and needing too much patience but I enjoy putting that extra time and effort to make something a little more special than it already is.
And Shimmerz products certainly take a big part of that.

Products used :

Shimmerz Apricot
Shimmerz Coffee
Pearlz Peas B mine
Bingz Gold Glimmer

Here is the layout using the accented cut-out flowers.

Oh.. how I love Shimmerz.. :)

Thank you for popping by and I hope it has inspired you in some way!
