Hello Shimmerz Fans!
Nicole here and today I have a fun Travelers Notebook entry for you!
I've been really getting into TN's lately, I know...a little late to the game, but I was intimidated by them at first. I really wasn't sure what I wanted to use mine for. Then I just started doing what I do...create. I had one insert for art journaling and one that was blank. I had no clue what I wanted to do with it. I've seen so many people create layouts with them, but I hesitated for the longest time to use it for that because then my layouts wouldn't be all together. And finally I realized that that was OK! All of them didn't have to be on 12x12 papers in my big fancy album. All of that space can be intimidating sometimes, especially if I'm going thru a creative block. The TN's are much smaller, less intimidating, and boy-o-boy did it go much faster! I tend to really over think my projects, but I really didn't with this size. I'll definately be doing a lot more with these!
So, here's my final TN spread:
I began by choosing my papers. I went thru all of my scraps and picked out those that caught my eye. These papers happened to be from a Hip Kit from a few months ago. I love the chevron pattern...that caught my eye right away! Then I went on the search for matching pieces and found another 12x12 paper that had the beautiful larger flower that I fussy cut on the left. Once I had my paper lined up how I wanted it, it was time for my Shimmerz! I wanted the shimmery pop from behind my flowers and this beautiful paper to make everything sparkle and come together! I did the simple packaging technique and added in just two different colors: Vibez in jeni B Bleu and Inklingz in Precious Posey. Once everything was dry, I adhered my papers, added my title, some chipboard stickers and ephemera that I wanted to use up and placed in my houses, butterfly, bird and other flowers. And really that was it! It just fell together so nicely! Here's a look at my final spread:
