Hope with Shimmerz and Amy Prior

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

This small plaque is from Kaisercraft and comes raw ready to be decorated. I have started off decorating the plaque by painting a layer of white crackle paint over the entire surface and allowing to dry overnight. Crackle Paint is one thing I have to be patient with and allow to dry properly LOL. 

The next day I have sprayed the background with various Shimmerz sprays to bring some blues, browns and pinks into the shabby crackled background. I have sprayed Coloringz Well Blue Me Down plus Mama Sings the Blues, Vibez in Rolling in the Hay color as well as Pop Art Pink, then I have added some Spritz in Treasured Hymn color. These were all very random sprays of colour and I have dried in between adding each colour to keep the colours from turning muddy. 

When I had dried off the layers of Shimmerz sprays, I have added some smears of Glass Bead Gel over the surface randomly followed by some smears of Shimmerz Dazzlerz paints in Barely Blue plus Tutti Frutti colours. I have smeared all these paint products quite literally using a palette knife. I have then painted the Blue Fern Studios Chipboard cross using Spun Sugar Dazzlerz from Shimmerz followed by a spray of Shimmerz Spritz in Bed of Roses color. I then topped the chipboard with another cross this time a metal trinket one from Prima Marketing.

I finally added some Shimmerz Inklingz in Corny Flower Blue to the Prima Marketing Resin letters plus some random spots here and there. The Bed of Roses Spritz was also dribbled here and there randomly to bring that brighter pink back into the project more. 

Shimmerz paint products used include...

Inklingz in Corny Flower Blue,
Spritz in Bed of Roses & Treasured Hymn,
Dazzlerz in Spun Sugar, Tutti Frutti & Barely Blue,
Coloringz in Well Blue Me Down & Mama Sings the Blues,
