Pastel Pretty

Hi everyone.  Today I have a new creation to share with you.  I am in love with everything pastel at the moment so thought I would create something using all of those pretty hues.  Here is the Shimmerz I used to create my layout:
Coloringz in Heidi Ho Blue and No Yoking
Vibez in Jeni B Bleu
Spritz in Sapphire and Mango Madness
Blingz in Under the Sea
Shimmerz in Candlelight and Tickle Me Turquoise
"Enjoy the Little Things"

This is how my layout started.  I wanted to add some bubble like elements to my page.  Easy, take the lid off your mist bottles and dip into your pots. 

Add another colour to the mix using the same technique. 

I love creating layouts with shells, they are the easiest embellishment to alter and they also add instant texture to your page.  I always start out by giving them a coat of Gesso.  I will then spray the mist over the top of them all.  I then apply a little texture paste to the shell and using a paintbrush I apply more Shimmerz to the top section sometimes letting it run down the shell.

I always like to add a darker shade of Shimmerz under embellishments and paper layers to add to the depth of my page.

Don't be afraid to get you Shimmerz on your photo, I purposely flicked Shimmerz onto my photo to blend it all together and to add to the shabby feel of the layout.

I hope you picked up some tips here today, just have fun and get messy :)
Have a great weekend xo
