"Mr. Right" Layout with Nicole

Hello Shimmerz Fans!

Today I have this fun, bright and colorful layout for you!  My desk has been swimming with papers and embellishments from the new Pink Paislee "Oh My Heart" collection and I couldn't help myself to pull out several of my Shimmerz paints that coordinate with this collection!  Here are some of the fantastic colors I found that coordinate with this collection VERY well:

Once I pulled my Shimmerz together, I really wasn't sure how this was all going to begin, but I knew I wanted a lot of color and I knew I wanted to use an open font cut file that I cut from my Silhouette.  I really wanted a messy watercolor background to compliment the papers I used, so I decided to cut my title, "Mr. Right," and back it with the papers that matched the Shimmerz I had chosen. Once I had my cut file backed, I  made watercolor splotches with my brush and the packaging technique and lots of splashes behind the title.  I kept the coordinating water colors and papers together...for example, the letter "G" in "Right" was an orange paper with pink polka dots, so I used the Inklingz "Can't Elope," behind that letter and the letter "R" was blue, so I kept the "Little Boy Blue" Aqua Huez behind that letter and so on.

When I adhered my title, I used a lot of foam squares so it stood up off my page to create a shadow and more depth to compliment all the water coloring.  I layered my photo with just tissue paper since there was so much color already in the layout. I used some of the coordinating ephemera from the collection and added that along with enamel dots around the photo and beside the "M."  To finish up the layout, I added three lines of journaling and my date centered under the title.

Here is the beautiful array of colors that I used on this layout:
