"Celebrate" TN Layout Featuring Custom Painted Paper & Embellishments | Nicole Kerr

 Hello Shimmerz Fans!
Nicole here and today I have a travelers notebook layout to share with you featuring hand painted papers and embellishments using Shimmerz paint and mists!
Here's a look at my final layout:

I wanted to do a non-traditional Christmas layout, so I chose to paint random gifts in different colors and sizes in teal, green and peach. I used Coloringz in Oh say Can U Sea, Coloringz in Peachy Keen  and Inklingz Honey Do List as my palette. Once they dried, I used a silver/grey glitter gel pen to draw on the ribbons, bows and patterns.  I also painted a cluster of gifts together to use as an embellishment piece.

I used a few blank labels from my stash to do my journaling on, along with other bits of embellishments and puffy stickers for my title. I didn't add much more to the right side of the page since my focus was on the paper and gifts that I had painted.  On the left side, I kept it more on the simple side since the right side was so busy.  I added in a few more hand painted gifts and a few matching embellishments from my stash again.

And here's a look at my final layout again....

Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope I have inspired you to create your own papers and embellishments for your layouts!
