Today I have a sweet canvas piece to share with you.  Along with a couple of easy tips to follow using your Shimmerz.  I actually made this for my cousins newborn baby, I hope she likes it. 
Shimmerz products used:
Coloringz in Pink Stiletto, Heidi Ho Blue and No Yoking
Spritz in Ruby and Mango Madness
Shimmerz in Magenta
Pearlz in Pretty in Pink
To create the backround I simply sprayed my mists and let them blend in to each other.  I then added some stamping and the cirlces.  To create the circles I took off the cap of my Spritz bottle and dabbed it into some Gesso and applied in to my canvas.  I also used the same technique with my Shimmerz pots.

I created the butterflies by adding a few layers.  I used 2 layers of paper butterflies, slightly different sizes and for my top layer I cut the butterfly shape from calico.  I adhered all three pieces together and then sprayed my mists on them, one colour down the middle and the other on the edges.  When the mist dries it turns the calico into a firmer texture and allows it to sit nicely.

I wanted this piece to be personal so adding in the baby's initial did just that.  I used my finger to apply gesso over the chipboard letter.  Added a little stamping and then with the mists, I took the lid off and flicked the colour onto the letter.  Simple easy and so effective.

Thankyou for taking the time to visit, hope you have a creative weekend :)
