*Jeni B Bleu...How I ♥ you*

I made quite the discovery a few weeks ago as I was
strolling through Joann's. I was excited to find some
tiny canvases that were just screaming to be altered.

They're 3x3 inches and SO cute. 

Just adding some paint, Shimmerz Vibez in Jeni B. Bleu,
Hi Ho Silver & Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz,
Concrete Shimmerz Spritz, some flowers & butterflies
(that were made with my Girls Loft June kit)
...this is what I came up with:

this is going on a wall just outside my bathroom.

Here's a few closeups:

I primed my canvases somewhat by first painting them a turquoise color.
Next I sprayed Shimmerz Vibez in Jeni B Bleu, in large amounts
on all the canvases.  Next I painted the edges in Shimmerz
Hi Ho Silver. Then I painted over the front with the Pixie Dust blingz.
Finally I sprayed Shimmerz Concrete as a finishing touch, over all the canvases.
Each die cut & embossed butterfly, as well as the punched butterflies
were sprayed with Jeni B Bleu Vibez.
This was SO fun to create!

Here's just a few more closeups:
I also love how mixing all the different Shimmerz products gave
some of the canvases the "crackled" look. I didn't even do that on purpose.

Another project I did was this layout:
I took this Girls Loft June layout and used Shimmerz Vibez in Jeni B Bleu &
I first sprayed the old book paper & the tiny butterflies 
with a light coat of Jeni B Bleu Vibez.
Next I painted some of my flowers & my leaf edges
in a very thick coat of Tickle Me Turquoise.
Finally I sprayed another layer of Jeni B Bleu on top of the flowers I painted.

Thank you for letting me share my love of Jeni B Bleu with you.
Have fun with some on your projects!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
