Creating a Serene Beach Canvas with Gabrielle

Hi all! It's been crazy with the weather here in Canada! Just when I think the summer weather is finally here, we get another cold spell!  But I'm not letting that stop me from having some warm summery fun making up a beach style canvas!  I recently renovated my laundry room and now am at the decorating stage.  The colors I chose were in the soft aquas (kind of beachy/Cape Cod look). So I wanted to create some art work for my walls.  So I gathered together some of my favorite Shimmerz paints products and got to playing!

Shimmerz Paints Products used in this video:
~ Taupe of the World Spritz
~ Don't Be Suede Coloringz
~ Glorious Day Vibez
~Jeni B Bleu Vibez
~ Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz
~ Lime Shimmerz
~ Olive Green Shimmerz
~ Golden Wheat Shimmerz

As always I created a video tutorial so that you can watch step by step how I created this canvas.  So grab yourself an iced tea, sit back, relax and enjoy! xo

I hope you enjoyed watching this project come together.  Here are some of the close-ups that you can view at your leisure (the video doesn't give you a long time to look :) ....

I made some of the embellishments with some Martha Stewart air dry clay (starfish, barnacles).

All the chipboard accents are from Dusty Attic Designs.  I love the effect the Shimmerz paints give the crooked fence design, the little bits of mica in the paint helps add that aged texture to the chipboard.

I also added some glass seed beads to the canvas for added texture.

I was really happy with the way the Taupe of the World Spritz looked on my chipboard anchor, I think it gives it a nice iron look!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Shimmerz blog today.  I hope I've inspired you to get playing with your Shimmerz products!  NOTE: If you'd like a FREE/Bonus Shimmerz product with your next order, be sure to mention my name 'Gabrielle' in the 'Instructions to Merchant/Seller' part of your order, to get bonus Shimmerz product in the color of your choice!
