Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today to share not one, but two scrapbook layouts that I have recently created using lots of gorgeous Shimmerz products including some of the amazing new colours that are available.
For this first layout, I have added some Gesso to my background cardstock using a fabulous Prima Marketing Stencil to start off a subtle pattern. I have used my cheap glossy Gesso as I find this will resist the water based paint products whereas my good artist quality Gesso is Matte and won't work as a resist. You could also use White cheap acrylic paint for the same effect.
When the Gesso was completely dry, I have added a lot of water to create a pool on the centre of the page before adding random bits of colour starting with Shimmerz Inklingz As Good As Gold, followed by Shimmerz Inklingz Gosh Garnet and then Shimmerz Inklings Blue My Mind. I just love the 2 tone effect of these amazing paints and they just look so glorious in real life, the photos never seem to do the colour and shimmer justice.
The chipboard frame around the photo was also coloured using Shimmerz Inklingz in the same colours that were used in the background. I also added some Crackle Paint to the chipboard for a bit more interesting texture.
This next layout was created on Black Cardstock for something different. I have added lots of gorgeous Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Spun Sugar through a Prima Marketing Flower stencil randomly all over the background. As I moved the stencil around, the messy underside left lots of smudges of patterns but I kinda like the effect.
Lots of gorgeous layers were added including paper, doilies, lace and stickers then I have finished off the layout with a Blue Fern Studios Chipboard frame that was painted using the new Shimmerz Inklingz Angels Kiss as well as my fave colour Beets Me. I have also painted the Prima resin frame using Shimmerz Inklingz Angels Kiss.
