Heart & Home - Joanne Bartell 

Hello friends! Joanne here today sharing a layout for Shimmerz Paints design team! Using Shimmerz on your layouts makes them so beautiful and magical! 

I used the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection to create this fabulous fall layout of my great niece in her scarecrow costume. She is so cute! What a smile! 

The Shimmerz Products I used are: 

I love embellishing on the vintage paper backgrounds, as it is just os pretty. I made two cluster - one on the left side to cover up some vegetables that did not go with my photo, and the other around and below my photo.

I used the Pumpkin Shimmerz through a stencil and used a ton of Good as Gold splatters to add to the magic of fall embellishments. I also added metal flair and tied a ribbon around my tag. 

Final touches on the layout was adding some Bramble Fox and Shimmerz Sequins in Fall Back. Those sequins are an absolute must have for your fall projects, so so pretty! 

There is a process video on my YouTube channel (link below) if you would like to see how this came together. 

As always, if you have any questions on Shimmerz products, please do not hesitate to ask me or anyone on the design team. We are always happy to help!

December - Joanne Bartell

Hello friends! Joanne here today sharing my layout for Shimmerz Paints. I used Shimmerz Snow Way Man to outline my shaker globes and make some beautiful winter blue splatters. 

I made some sequinz globes using a metal die from Hip Kit Club and filled them with the gorgeous Shimmerz Paints Sequinz. There is a wide variety of holiday and other sequinz available in the shop. 

The collection I used is from an older Pinkfresh Studio collection called Oh What Fun! I made two tags and had them flow down from the center photo and tied ribbon and twine on them. I used a HKC metal die to make the circles for my photo and its background. 

Thanks for stopping by the Shimmerz Paints blog. I hope this layout inspired you and gave you some scrapping ideas.

Happy Holidays to all. Feel free to stop by my YouTube channel to see how this layout came together.

Fairy Lights On Winter Nights, For The Shimmerz Paints Design Team


 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Shimmerz Paints! Go and see all the                                                                                   fun treasures there! 

To make this page, 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 added layers of corrugated cardboard and a watercolor mat. The bottom layer of cardboard has gesso that I poured Ultra Thick Embossing Powder onto and heated till  it was just melted.
 I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste on 49 and Market paper with a stencil and a spatula.I arranged the Beautiful Board and flowers around the page, then added the beads and other items.I brushed on Shimmerz Paints, and glued on more beads. I applied jaquard brilliant gold and silver mica powder with my fingers over raised edges and other items.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, glass glitter,Swarovski  crystals, glass beads, sequins, tulle,lace,iridescent wrapping paper,flowers,iridescent wrapping paper,  and bling from my stash. A lot of the items 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. 

Inklingz:   Blue My Mind, and First Blush

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

 So Beautiful - Joanne Bartell

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a Shimmerz Paints 12 x 12 scrapbook layout. I used Shimmerz to make my background come alive with fabulous colors! 

I used multiple pieces of leftover scraps from the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Cottage Fields collections and make layers and layers under this beautiful photo of my great nice! 

I glued the layers and embellishments "up" as opposed to my background until it was all one piece that I could draw a pencil line around and move as one piece. I then proceeded to spray some of my favorite colors Cotton Candy, Glorious Day, and made splatters and more splatters with As Good as Gold

I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout. Please feel free to watch my process video to see how this came together by clicking the link below.

Have a great day! Happy Crafting!

Catch of the Day Lakeside | Shimmerz Paints | MK Gunn

Hey, MK here! Sharing an outdoorsy layout, wishing it was still warm outside.  Our winter has barely begun and I'm already for it to be overwith. So I scrap the outdoors to get over my cabin fever.

Today I've combined greens and browns with the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Lakeside Collection.  The colors I have chosen for this project: 
From the Shimmerz collection: Coffee, Slow Ocean & Rita on the Rocks
From the Inklings Collection: Penny 4 Your Thoughts & I'm Not Limon
From the Coloringz Collection: Sage it Ain't So

Such beautiful warm, earthy colors....

I started by ripping one of my printed papers around the print that I wanted on my layout.  Then I used a pencil to trace around the print and one of my photos - no sense in putting color where you aren't going to see it.  I started with Sage it Ain't So, adding a small amount of I'm Not Limon while the Sage was still wet, allowing the colors to blend.  Then a added Rita on the Rocks here and there in small amounts.  I took my heat gun and started to dry the green just a little bit.  Then I dabbed Slow Ocean in spots opposite of where I used Rita on the Rocks.  I love that subtle hint of blue in all the greens.  Brought back my heat gun to dry the greens once more so I could come back with Penny 4 Your Thoughts drawn around my pencil line.

Once the paint wsa all dry, I glued my papers and photos back where I wanted them.

Now it's all about the embellishments, When it comes to placing embellishments down, I don't think about the background.  I think about "filling the gaps", where is my design going, and what helps tell my story?

In the end, by beautiful greens and brown get covered up and become the "shadow" I'm looking for.  They end up blending along with the layout.  I do come back with splats from Penny 4 Your Thoughs.  I also fill in a couple more spots with Sage it Ain't So where I wanted a little more green to be showing.  Then I mounted my whole warpped layout on another print from this collection to help keep the layout flat.
