10 steps to an easy page.

Hi there.
Back again today with another Shimmerz Share.
This one is a nice easy Shimmerz page.

This one was one I had planned for another page. I sprayed the page with Vertigre Vibez.....a nice dark colour, which I then sprinkled heavily with Molten Metal Enamelz, and then tipped off the loose powder and heat set it, adding much more texture.......after I did this, it was just too much for the page I was planning, so I set it aside and went in a different direction for that page.

Come this layout, I decided now was the time to use the partially done page to record something I want to remember, seeing this will be my last bub.  It came together super easy and very fast.  (Love it when that happens!)  The first time I tried with this background I worked on it for ages before deciding the page had to go...it just wasn't working.

So here is what I did in 10 simple steps. (the colors I used are in brackets)

1. Splatter the page with my chosen colour (Vertigre Vibez)
2. Sprinkle the wet droplets with my chosen Enamelz (Molten Metal) and tip off the loose powder onto a folded sheet of scrap paper (which then makes it easy to tip back into the jar.)
3. Heat set the powder.
4.  Select a favourite text stamp and stamp into some Pearlz Paint (Esspresso) painted onto a craft sheet and stamp off a little, then stamp off the top and bottom edge for added texture.
5. Add a doiley
6. Add your photo
7. Coil some string and secure it in several places with dobs of wet glue (Helmar 450 Quick Dry).
8. Add your title and chosen word stickers
9. Add other bits and pieces to embellish
10. Add your journaling.

Nice and easy.

Hope you can fit in some 'playtime' and maybe follow these steps to your own easy page.
