Our Little Fisherman-September 2021 Colorkitz

 Hi everyone, I'm Rhonda and today I'm sharing a layout using the Shimmerz September 2021 Color Kitz.

I loved every color in this kit so I was super excited to use them. I basically divided my layout into 2 halves creating a mountain/water scene. For the top "mountain" section I used the Vibez in "ocean water" with some Coloringz in "Ahoy Matey". I also added a bit of the Inklingz "pistachio." Once it was dry I used a mountain cut file to add some mountains to the background using some distress ink.

I added some hand sewn clouds in a metallic silver embroidery floss.

For my body of water I used a Paige Evans cut file as a stencil to create some dimensional fish onto my background with texture paste. Once dry I used Creameez in "witches blue" and, again, Coloringz in "Ahoy Matey." Once that was dry I used a small paintbrush to add some silver highlights to each of the textured fis with the Shimmerz "silver bells" which is a stunning shimmery silver. 
I added some machine stitched waves and a few random fish for added texture and dimension.  A few sequins along the waves add just a bit of life to the water.

I also added a few of the foliage stickers that come with the kit. 

I hope you're inspired to purchase your own September 2021 Colorkitz. Happy Scrapping!

Hello Fall by Veronika Senova

 Hello Scrappy Friends!

Do you like Fall? I didn't like it before, but since Im scrapbook I so love it, beautiful colours outside and beautifull fall collections each year. Today I want to share with you layout where I combined two collections: The best day by Pinkfresh studio and Bungalow lane by Paige Tayloe Evans. I started with fussycutting colorfull leaves from two  of Paige's papers and then put on my desk shimmerz which I thought will match this leaves. As I dont have any orange in my stash I have to mix and match, but this is what I  love the most about mixed media and especially about Shimmerz. I love to mix them and create new and new colors.

For upper part of my Layout I used yellows: Egg Noggin, Mustard Seed and Bumbly Bee, pinks: Pink-O-De Mayo  and Pop Art Pink and Oringes I created  by mixing them and with Mango Tango. For bottom Part I used Evegreen mixed with bit of yellows. I started with Gesso  to be able mix and add colors without destroing my cardstock. 

I was scrapping pic of my two girls under big beautiful Oak and my  idea was "finish" it with fussycutted leaves, so I firstly arange them with pic, noted with pencil where I want to add color and took a picture to know where I want to add which color. Then I just mix and add colors with my brush. I so love about shimmerz that I can create litteraly each color for perfect match with papers and embelishments.

Then I created bottom with green to finish my tree backround. Then I add leaves, adhered with foam squares for dimension. I backed my photo with more layers of paper matching both Picture and layout. I also Added card for journaling under photo, because I want to write longer story and also because it match my layout perfectly. 

I embelished layout with puffy and cardstock stickers and added my Hello Fall title. Then I added few splatters and That was it :) I hope you like my fall layout and see you next time.

Shimmerz Paints Design Team Post, Dreamcatcher

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new design team post for the amazing Shimmerz Paints, I love                                                                         their rich texture and colors!  

To make this I applied white gesso to the chipboard pieces. I poured on Aqua Tinsel Embossing Powder on Versamark ink on a few random areas. I added the pearls and microbeads, and Shimmerz Paints.
I kept adding things, and more layers of paint and mica powder. A lot of the items are from Reneabouquets.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads, glass glitter ,gold leaf,glass beads, pearls, rhinestones,  glass hearts,sequins,tulle, iridescent wrapping paper, feathers from my yard,pressed and dried flowers, a flower from  Reneabouquets, metal fromTim Holtz,and bling and from my stash The birds are from Graphic 45 Birdwatcher, they're attached with gold wire and Glossy Accents.Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. It's hard to see,but at the bottom of each feather I wired on a moonstone, quartz, and a sterling silver bead. They weighted the feathers down, so they hung better. The stick at the top is from one of my rosebushes.

I used the following colors:   Peacock's Plume ,and Christmas Cheer Shimmerz ,then Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz. I painted on Steely Blue Eyes Inklingz. layered on top of some of the Peacock's Plume. I brushed on black ink to outline different areas. I painted on a mix of gold mica powder and water.

                                     Thank you so much for looking , and have a great week!

Hello Dude | September Color Kitz | Lorimar Ortega

Hello Shimmerz Crew!

Lorimar here, sharing this gorgeous boy layout using the September Color Kitz. This month I decided to focus on the colors within the Color Kitz, added a bit of texture using the Mother of Pearl Foilz, and didn't use the cut file. You can grab your very own kit and other goodies here ---->>> 

Today's layout seems complicated, but super easy to make. Begin by adding gesso to your background. Once dry, go crazy with the Shimmerz! I basically sprayed Ahoy Matey and Ocean Water unto the background, and splashed (with a brush) Silver Bells, Witches Blue, and Pistachio. Always allow mixed media ample time to dry before adding any extra layers. Using a stencils from my stash, I added Mother of Pearl Foilz around the area where I'd be adding my photo and embellishments. Once this was dry, I added a couple more splashes of Pistachio and Witches Brew.

I allowed everything to dry and then began layering in my photo and embellishments, including some doilies I had hiding around in my stash, and finished off the layout with the Dotz from the Color Kitz.

That's it! Try out any of the techniques you see here and be sure to share your layout at the Shimmerz Paints Sharez Facebook group.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Take care!

September 2021 Color Kitz | Brianna Lepper

Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here with you today sharing a new layout using the gorgeous September 2021 Color Kitz!  For an up close look at the kit contents and to see how this page came together, make sure to check out my process video at the end of this post.  Here's my layout:  

To start, I took all of the colors in the kit (minus Silver Bells) and put them all down on my glass mat.  I then took the inner leaf pieces from the cut file and smooshed them into the colors allowing them to blend and mix together. This technique totally gives it a different look when the paint dries and I love it!  It does get your hands messy, but who doesn't like to get a little messy every now and then??  

While the leaves were drying, I pulled out a piece of thick white cardstock and added gesso to it.  Once it was ready, I sprayed and splattered all of the colors in the kit into a circle shape.  I wanted a fun background for the cut file to sit on top of.  After it was dry, I adhered the cut file down and added foam tape to all of my leaf pieces and put them back in their appropriate spots.  I love how it turned out!  

Next, I pulled out the Dotz from the kit and created three different embellishment clusters using some floral ephemera as well.  I added in some tangled thread and adhered the Dotz to each cluster.  I then took the foliage stickers from the kit and tucked/layered them in.  I popped them up on foam tape to give them some extra lift.  

Here's another shot of the Dotz: 

I embellished the rest of my page and that finished off my page!  The background and cut file were both super busy so I didn't want to take too much away from them.  

Have you tried the smooshing technique using your Shimmerz Paints?  It's so fun! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way!  Please check out my process video below and make sure to add your name to the notes/comments section to your next order and you'll receive a free gift!  See you next time friends!
