Back to basics.....

Hi all, I have a new layout to share with you today with a super easy, quick and effective background using Shimmerz.  Firstly here are the Shimmerz products I used to create this layout:
 
Vibez in Hot Fudge
Spritz in Truffle
Coloringz in Heidi Ho Blue
Shimmerz in Antique Lace
Enamelz in Gold Digger
 
 


I used a Mistable background with a resist pattern.  I gave the centre section of my layout a couple of sprays of Vibez.  Taking a straw I blew from the centre outwards to create the streak effect.  I turned the paper around and blew out at every angle.
 


I dabbed the centre section with a tissue to reveal the resist pattern.
 


I then did the same thing with the Coloringz.
 


Next I started to embellish and layer allowing the effect of the background to be seen from the top and bottom of the layout.
 


So there you go, something as simple as a straw can make your Shimmerz project standout.  Have a wonderful week xo
