Final Guest Designer Post for January- Sarah Lynch

Hi everyone, it's Sarah here.

So thrilled to be able to share one last project as Guest Designer this month for Shimmerz! I made another layout again, I have really been enjoying making them lately.  January is the month for new beginnings, for planning, for reflecting. I have made a resolution to myself to try not to get so angry or irritable so easily...I need to just relax and take a deep breath sometimes.  I created this layout of the beach in Captiva Island, Florida, where I vacationed over the summer.  It evokes memories of serenity and clarity.  I collected these shells while I was taking a walk by myself at sunset one night. It was such a calm and peaceful place.

I used many colors of Shimmerz for this project:
Shimmerz ~ Celery
Vibez ~ Pop Art Pink and Razzel Dazzel Berry
Spritz ~ Sapphire and Caribbean Sunset

I really wanted to create a lot of texture on this layout, this is how it started out:

I like to use the little applesauce cups to mix color with modeling paste! Then scraped it through a stencil. So much fun to add texture!  I used lots of Carribean Sunset, Pop Art Pink and Razzel Dazzel Berry to create the top "sky." Here are some close ups:

 Stop by my blog and say hi, I love to meet other crafters!
I'd really like to thank everyone at Shimmerz for allowing me to share with you guys this month, hope it's a good one for everyone!
