Boathouse Wine Company

HAPPY FRIDAY, ALL! Today is my first post as the Shimmerz guest designer for September. Are these products amazing and fun or what?! One of the biggest reasons why I instantly fell in love with Shimmerz is how quickly they dry! I have NO patience whatsoever. It was so cool, that I could paint, put it to the side for just a few moments and it would be ready to go!
I couldn't believe it when Dena and Bethany approached me. These girls are so sooo talented and they wanted little ol' me to guest design?! wow!! I had to think about it for like .5 seconds! ;D

I made this chipboard mini album for my cousin Tess. She just graduated highschool and started college at Arkansas State (where I got my degree). This summer her and her girlfriend sang out at a local winery a couple of times. 

 I used Shimmerz Magenta as half of the background on my cover and stamped it with pretty french wording. (it could be cuss words for all I know...but, it looks pretty!)
I then did a little splatter paint with Vibez Sea Monkey. This has got to be my fave color at the moment. (I am sure it will change by next week...because all their colors are so gorgeous!)

I REALLY love how the background turned out on this page. I first painted the chipboard with Shimmerz Pearlz Peas B Mine and then, using Tim Holtz music mask, sprayed Vibez Red-y or Not. It gave it that purple hue. 

Is it next week yet, because I forgot that this color was my favorite too! ha!
I painted this background with Blingz Wintergreen and stamped with those French cuss words again. 

So pretty, eh?! 

I painted this page with Pearlz Espresso and stamped using Pearlz Peas B Mine

On this page, I misted first (Vibez Red-y or Not), then painted in the negative space (Pearlz Peas B Mine). 
Then, I stamped and splattered (Spritz Licorice)

I hope you guys have enjoyed my first Shimmerz project! 

Also, don't forget that they are having a DT call for their Educational Blog! Check out the deets here!
