Create with Shimmerz and Amy Prior

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today to share another recent creation using tonnes of gorgeous Shimmerz paint products. 

I have recently been spending lots of time reorganising my scrap studio and I wanted to create some new decor items to add to the space as the ones I had were made over 7 years ago so needed updating. My style has changed dramatically in 7 years.

I had these gorgeous raw Natural Canvas Banner pieces in my stash (amazing what you find when you clean, sort and organise your space). I knew they were perfect for my first decor piece and when I realised that I had 6 pennants, the perfect word came to mind to use and that was "Create".

I have quite a large stash of old Chipboard letters in a box but I could not find the same type of letters in either upper-case complete or lower-case complete. I went with a mix of both and I just love the whimsy look it gives to the finished project.

The Canvas Pennants were raw so after wetting them with lots of water, I started to add various colours of Shimmerz to the background to create gorgeous girlie rainbows over each piece. 

I was running low on Pink Shimmerz so I have also added some Beets Me Inklingz to the backgrounds because, well, it is my favourite LOL. Next step was to paint my chipboard letters and I went with White to create a nice contrast against the intense colours of the background. I am just so chuffed with how this turned out.

Final touches included lots of gorgeous little flowers mainly Scrappers Garden & Petaloo plus some Flourish with a Bling pearls scattered around. The petals of the flowers and leaves were given a little dip of Tidy Widy Texturez to bring that white into them a little.

Shimmerz Paint products used include...
Shimmerz in Tickle Me Turquoise, Sunny, Pink, Key Lime, Jilted Jade & Magenta colours,
Inklingz in Beets Me colour, 
Dazzlerz in Spun Sugar colour,
Texturez in Tidy Widy colour.

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
