I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. I taped together layers of cardboard with the photo on top. I brushed on clear gesso on 49 & Market paper. I applied Prima Platinum crackle through a Finnabair stencil with a spatula. I put the frame on the page, and started adding flowers and other items. 


                                                   I brushed on different colors of paints:



 
                                            




To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter, tulle,sisal, dried and pressed flowers,Swarovski and other brands of crystals, glass beads, pearls,gold thread, sealing wax,metal from Reneabouquets, Beautiful Board from  Reneabouquets,and bling and metal from my stash. I rubbed on gold mica powder on a lot of raised areas. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things,and to put the cardboard layers together. All the fussy cut images are from recent 49 & Market papers.











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

May 2022 Color Kitz-Rhonda Reno

 


Hello everyone! I've got a layout to share with you highlighting the awesomeness of the May 2022 Color Kitz.
The color kit this month is another amazing combination of colors and products that work perfectly together.
You can see in the photos below all the products included in this month's kitz. As always you receive not only the beautiful paints but also "extras." This month you will receive the following products:

*brand new original Shimmerz in the color "Here I Yam," Creameez in "For Shore", Inklingz in "Meet Me At Sunset," A Spritz spray in "Chick-A-Dee" and a Vibez in "Palm Reader"

You will also receive 2 exclusive digital cutfiles, a set of Shimmerz Dotz epoxy flair and also a set of floral stickers.
The stickers can be used by either removing the backing OR you can leave it intact if you want to dab some liquid adhesive onto the back. 






I created my layout by starting with the mixed media which is my favorite part of scrapbooking. There's just something about these paints, am I right?
I had my title cut file backed with a sheet of paper from the Doodlebug "Spring Garden" 6x6 paper pad. I couldn't have asked for a more perfectly matched patterned paper for my title. I ended up only using one set of the lemon cut files. To back those I used a combination of all the colors except the Shimmerz Here I Yam on smooth white gessoed. I could not be happier with how my lemons turned out and I can't take any credit...the paints were just the perfect colors!


I used ALL the colors for my mixed media background. I absolutely love how the orange added just the perfect amount of something extra to the background.
And, those florals which are somewhere between a washi and vellum sticker look incredible layered on either side of my cut file. I removed the backing from mine and I found them to be of similar feel to washi tape.



A couple of the epoxy flair Dotz were the perfect finishing touch!



If you haven't picked up your own kit for this month you can click this link and head over there now while they're still in stock.

 Hello Scrappy friend, today I have for you sweet layout of my younger Marina. She is so sweet and caring and I love this pic of her. (of course she can be devil too :D but that's different story:)

I decided to finally dive into Collection which is collab of Flora Farkas and Pinkfresh studio and it is definitely sweet and perfect for my picture. First I added gesso on my white cardstock and then till it dry I was thinking about my composition. I put on few greens and florals under my pic and set it as base of my layout. at the beginning. it looked like monochromatic layout but I wanted som colours so I went with oranges and pinks instead of blues and greens ( I used Can't Elope, Orange Sherbet, Pink-O-De-Mayo, Weakest Pink, Sweet Heart Pink Stilettos and Pop Art Pink)


I used Packaging technique which I kind of don't like ( or maybe can't do:D) but this time I was so satisfied with result. I just did colur after colur and let them shift as they want, I added just a little water to help them. After all was dry I made some tone in tone splatters around my color area. Some of them I whipped out with napkin to have soft effect some of them I let fully dry as they was to have bold effect.


Then unfinished layout was reeealy long on my desk, and I was desperately trying to find time to finish it. And this time was today :) so I added tissue paper and two frames under my picture and also foam to have a dimension. Then I adhered all my greenery, added two fussycutted and one puffy butterfly on them.
As a finish I used Pinkfresh studio gems in turqouise and title in shades of pinks and orange.
At the end I added short journaling and voila. Finishing this layout was actually much more quicker than I expected. Hope you like it and see you soon

Hello Summer | Shimmerz Paints Color Kitz May 2022 | Lorimar Ortega

Hello Shimmerz Paints Fans!

Today's layout features the oh-so-stunning May Color Kitz (click on the name to grab it before it sells out). I decided to focus on the colors, vellum flowers, and dots for my layout, but know that there are 2 cut files included with your purchase. Also, remember to type my name (Lorimar) in the comments section of your next order to be able to receive a freebie!


Let's get started with the process. I began with a non-gessoed sheet of white cardstock and sprayed No Yolking and Palm Reader in a grid-like format; then, I splattered For Shore and Meet Me At Sunset on top. While this dried, I dove into my stash and picked out embellishments which were green, yellow, or neutral in color AND/OR had a summer-y feel to them. For an extra pop of color, I colored the vellum flowers with Palm Reader and Here I Yam.
 
The arrangement of my layout is basically a grid format with the larger photo on the upper right-hand quadrant and the smaller ones in the center and lower left hand side. The bigger embellishments were nestled into the open spaces and the rest were arranged around those. The vellum flowers were layered beneath some of the embellishments in places that needed a pop of orange and green. I was inspired by the cut files from the color kit to use up some lemons and I was so thankful that I had stashed them. Then I popped some Dots around the layout. To finish off my layout, I wrote the journaling with a green marker and added some doodles here and there as well, and splattered Here I Yam and For Shore to tie everything together.

That's it! I had loads of fun with this layout and hope that I've inspired you!
Take care,
- Lorimar
