You're Always Amazing with Missy

Happy Tuesday, Shimmerz fans!  Missy back with you today.  I'm so excited to share my latest layout with you all!  I had an idea I wanted to try, and it turned out way better than I thought it would.  I love when that happens!

I use my Silhouette Cameo quite a bit, and I love creating backgrounds with it.  I used this fun triangle cut file from The Cut Shoppe (it's called The Totally Triangles background) and cut it on plain white cardstock.  Before I pulled it off the sticky mat, I used a ton of Shimmerz products to color it.  Yes, I did mixed media work right on the mat, and it didn't affect it one bit!  I wound up with this beautiful rainbow effect die cut.  And again, I started with a colorful "hard-to-scrap" photo, and I used random papers and bits from my stash.


Look at all this yummy color!  I used Dazzlerz, Coloringz, Vibez, Spritz, Shimmerz, Texturez and Inklingz all over this background.  I used my finger and a paint brush.  It was like finger painting mostly :)  I used a small square grid stencil on the background in a few spots and sprayed a few colors here and there.


I love how black pops against all these gorgeous colors.  For the first time in a LONG TIME, I took a piece of chipboard and colored it with Texturez Brick Wall and Dazzlerz Pucker Up Pink.  I think this butterfly has been in my stash for about seven years!  Wow!  My alphas are all from American Crafts.


I added in some tangled thread amongst my random paper layers and a few American Crafts embellishments.  I also added some Before Dawn Vibez splatters on the background.


I added in a bit of machine stitching and a few Crate Paper rub-ons that were sitting on my desk.  They went on nicely even over the texture of the die cut.  I used a few cute circle stamps and cut them out to add in a few more embellishments here and there.


One more close-up just because of the gorgeous color :)  That beautiful blue color on the background is a mix of Jeni B Bleu Vibez and Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz...two of my all-time favorite Shimmerz colors!  And there are a few strips of washi tape there, too.


I'm so glad I recorded this layout being created...I am really pleased with how the die cut turned out.  I hope you enjoy watching!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day!  Remember to visit the Shimmerz store and mention my name when you check out to receive some free product!
