I coated my textured white cardstock with clear gesso first while it was stuck to my Cameo cutting mat. I knew I wanted to cut shapes out of it, and this would help it stay smooth. I basically just sprayed, splattered and used plastic packaging to cover the entire paper with color. I used Coloringz Moody Mauve, Mama Sings the Blues & Well Blue Me Down, and Vibez Pink Moscato & Mustard Seed to begin with. I love how the color scheme turned out. Next I added in some Shimmerz Peacock's Plume & Christmas Cheer as well as Creameez 1 Hot Mama. After everything dried, I cut out the Simple Flower Background cut file by Paige Evans. I wound up using both the positive and negative cuts because everything turned out so pretty!
Here you can see the beautiful shimmer and shine from all the sprays and paints. I just kind of dropped a pile of the flowers onto the paper and glued them down as they landed. I love how all the overlapping creates such awesome texture and depth. I also added in a few sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.
No matter how many times I used Shimmerz, I am in awe every time of how pretty the sparkle and shine is!
I used bits and pieces from last year's Pink Paislee Summer Lights collection. The colors matched my Shimmerz choices perfectly. I layered in some golden yellow thread here as well as some beautiful metallic thread sent to me by a great scrappy friend :) I also did some background machine stitching using white thread.
I love how the stitching creates such subtle yet interesting detail. I used a sparkly puffy sticker from the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss collection for my title.
I fussy cut the heart from patterned paper and overlapped it onto the photo with a few of the flowers peeking out from around it. I topped it off with more sequins. I added my journaling down at the bottom using a metallic silver pen. One of the last things I did was splatter some Concrete Shimmeringz over everything.
Here's another shot of the pretty sparkles. Seriously just so pretty :)
I added a bit of Paste-eez Puttin' on the Glitz to a few of the flowers just using my fingers to smudge it on. It dries clear but very glittery. I added a chipboard camera and a sun sticker over to the left of the page. I love how it looks layered behind some of the flowers.
One last close-up of all the sparkle! Here you can see where I added the Paste-eez. So awesome!
I hope this inspires you to pull out some white cardstock and use some Shimmerz to create your own color scheme and design. You can create so many embellishments using a die cut machine or punches. This was lots of fun to make...I hope you enjoyed it!
