'Be You' by Niki Rowland: Mixing Products

Hey there Shimmerz Fans! Niki here with you today with this layout that I made using lots of different Shimmerz products.

Firstly I was inspired by the a paper from one of the recent Pinkfresh collections and decided to use that as a base to my layout. I cut part of it out and then placed it onto a white background. My plan was to extend the coloured strips of paper with mixed media products.

I started off by using the packaging technique to apply Vibez in Pop Art Pink and Deep Blue Sea to the white background, as well as some Jilted Jade original Shimmerz. I kept testing out my paper against the background I was creating.

I then added different Dazzlers through stencils in similar colours, again extending the coloured areas. I used Dreamscicle, Sea U in the Mornin', and then I needed a rose gold colour which I didnt have in my stash, so I mixed Foiled Again, Gold Mine and Tutti Fruiti together to create this rose-gold. I then applied this through a stencil too. I then watered it down so that I could use it to add splatters.

Once my background was done and dry, I then added my photo, bits and pieces of ephemera and puffy stickers. I left no room for journaling so added that in right at the very top of the layout.

I hope you've enjoyed my layout today, there is a process video too that can be viewed below.
