Hi Shimmerz Fans! It's Gabrielle here with you today to share with you my latest Mixed Media Canvas using some of those, oh so gorgeous Shimmerz paints products! This month I combined Shimmerz Paints with some of my favorite Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. I based my project on the January Mood Board from Dusty Attic. I found all the perfect colors to match the moodboard in my Shimmerz paints stash! Here are the Shimmerz Paints products I used for this project....
Shimmerz Paints Products used in this project:
~ Moody Mauve Coloringz
~ Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz
~ Tuscan Sun Spritz
~ Don't Be Suede Coloringz
~ A Shade of Grey Coloringz
~ Spiced Cider Blingz
~ Blue My Mind Inklingz
~ Good as Gold Inkingz
~ Gosh Garnet Inklingz
Yep, I used a lot of Coloringz...I just love the rich intense color you get with these color sprays! As always, I created a Video Tutorial for you all, so that you can see step by step how I put this project together. Grab yourself your favorite beverage, kick back, relax and enjoy!....
Here are a few close-ups of today's project that you can view at your leisure...
I love the lovely metalic sheen the Inklingz give to the chipboard pieces!
I like to apply my colors in 2 ways, layering them on and drying between layers....this can give a nice intense coloring to your project. I also like to apply complimentary colors in different sections of the canvas at the same time and let the colors blend together in some areas, this creates a variety of colors on your canvas. As you can see above adding the Blue My Mind Inklings to the Good as Gold while still wet, created a lovely hints of green on my chipboard pieces.
I love the intense blue I got with the Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz. To get even more depth of color, I added a spritz of 'A Shade of Grey' Coloringz to each of the corners layering it over the blue....this gave me deep intense color on my canvas.
