Colouring with Shimmerz

Hey there!
I have a video for you today on colouring with Shimmerz.  We all see shimmerz used with drips and splats and sprays.....and they are perfect for the very basic use of colouring images.  I use the pots of paints (mostly Shimmerz and pearlz) but you can use the bottles and just dip your brushes in, just test that the colours are opaque enough for your use.

In the video below I drew some images and copied them onto watercolour paper.  This is really helpful, in that the paper can get quite wet when colouring with paints, and watercolour paper is designed specifically to stand getting wet, without warping.

So settle into a comfy spot and see how to paint simple images to use in card making, scrapbooking, (or any project you can think of!)

Heres the video.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Shimmerz Blog today!
Hope you are inspired to pull out your Shimmerz.....Or stop by the Shimmerz Store to grab a few more.

Have a fun and creative week....

That IS THE CUTEST monster ever! Love the idea of going back to basics and painting in stamped images, etc. Great job Lydell!!!
