On this layout I found that Shimmerz paints added a perfect touch to many of my accents. First I painted chipboard pieces with a similar color of acrylic paints, then for the trees I used "Green Olive" Shimmerz and "Choc-lot" for the trunks. I added some red mini brads for the apples, but then topped them off with a dab on each of the "Flashee Fushia" Blingz. The fushia sort of mellowed out the bright red brads which I felt blended better with my other layout colors. (Click on photos for close ups!)
The little chipboard bird is coated with "December Sky" Blingz and I also added a quick wash along the green border of the layout in the same color. It looks awesome yet still earthy with my layout scheme-- sort of like nature's mica flakes mixed in amongst the grasses and dirt.
The final Shimmerz touch was added to the alphabet stickers. I chose my letters, painted them up with "Choc-o-lot" right on the sticker sheet then peeled them off when dry and applied them to my layout.
