Ocean Mono Tonez with Amy Prior

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today to share some scrapbooking pages that I have created using some of the gorgeous new Shimmerz Tonez collections. Don't forget to check out the awesome video here for all the info on these amazing new sets from Shimmerz paints. Then come stop by the Shimmerz Retail store here to purchase your set today.

The first layout that I have to share with you all today is featuring the entire Shimmerz Ocean Tonez set as pictured above. I just ADORE these colors so much eeekk they make me so happy.

To create my background I have added lots of water sprayed to my white cardstock before spraying some Deep Blue Sea Vibez & Jeni B Blue Vibez randomly on the water pools. I have quickly dried this with my heat tool to create this awesome pooled water effect before adding some splatters of Ride the Tide Creameez and Me & Blue Inklingz also to the background.

When the Ocean Tonez colors were all dry, I have added some stencilling to the background using Shimmerz Texturez Patina and a 6x6 Crafters Workshop Art Is.. Stencil.

The last step for painting included these gorgeous Chipboard flourishes from Blue Fern Studios. I have firstly painted these roughly with some Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Barely Blue + Gummy Bear Blue to give a nice variation of color. Next I have simply drizzled some of the Ride the Tide Creameez + Me & Blue Inklingz over the top to add some more variation of Blue tones. 

Overall the blues were simply gorgeous but I decided to add some aqua, green and purple shades to the layout as well to add more color and to work with the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios papers I wanted to use. 

The next set of Shimmerz Tonez that I have used is the Mono Tonez. These Mono Tonez colors are just the perfect jumping off point for any project and I just adore how colors pop off the contrast of the Mono Tonez colors!

For this background, I have created the same sort of water pooled image on my white cardstock as above just by using sprayed water first to create a pool and then followed by adding sprays of Taupe of the Mornin' + Taupe of the World. After heat drying this pool with my heat gun I have sprinkled some No One's Chrome Inklingz + Thunder Storn Creameez just very lightly over the pools.  

Next I have added some stamping using some Black Archival Ink and a Kaisercraft Texture Stamp just randomly and messily over my background. The pure black pigment of tha Archival Ink is the perfect addition to the gorgeous hues of grey in the Mono Tonez set. 

Next I have painted some Blue Fern Studios Chipboard using some Gesso to prime before spraying with Shimmerz Princess Vibez over the top quite heavily to get the gorgeous rich purple color.

Some final additions to this layout included gorgeous printed vellum, Flourish with a Bling embellishments and some title/journalling work before it was complete. I just adore how the purple just pops off the page as well as the gorgeous colors in the photo.
