Pretty Butterfly

Hi Shimmerz fans, just sharing a new layout with you today using loads of my favourite Shimmerz products.  I visited my best friend and her new bub a few weeks ago, accross the other side of the country, I couldn't help but create something girly of the 2 of us!!  I have used a load of product here, so here is the list:
Coloringz in Heidi Ho Blue, Mandarin Mai Tai and Pink Stiletto
Shimmerz in Apricot, Tickle me Turquoise and Hott E Pink
Spritz in Licorice, Mango Madness, Carribean Sunset, Ruby and Sea Foam
Now you don't need all of the above to create something like this, some of these colours are just flicked on my page to add that little bit more colour.

Closeup my butterfly!

I just wanted to share a quick how to on the butterflies I created in the background.  I apologise for the photo quality, it was a night and lighting was poor.
I grabbed my chipboard butterflies and placed them on my layout where I wanted them to frame my photo.  I sprayed serveral bottles layering over each other.  I then took all the butterflies off and put the big one back on this time holding it in place whilst I held the paper upright and let the Spritz run down the page.

Using some texture paste I outlined the butterflies.  I then grabbed my Shimmerz pots and a paintbrush and coloured in the butterflies blending the colours into together.

I then pulled the nozzle off the Licorice Spritz and traced the inside lines of the butterflies, also adding flicks to the page as I went.

More flicks were added by taking off the lid and flicking back onto the page.

I then added my photo mat for my picture.  I placed another couple of butterflies around the calico to blend into the background.

All extra embellishments were now added.
Thanks for checking out my creation today, have a wonderful week x
