Project Life With Shimmerz Paints.....hand in hand

Lydell here with you again with some more Project Life Creating.
You may remember these cards, which I created using Shimmerz Paints on the Gelli Plate (video 2 shows them finished).....So much fun this is.  I cant wait for the next time I need more cards so I can play again.  As it is I have a stack of 3x4 cards about 5 inches high!  I need to use them.....but that should not be hard.  The results are gorgeous, and if you enjoy creating your cards by hand rather than using all store bought pre printed ones then this is for you!

Can you spot the Shimmerz?  Its all on the background cards, in layers, using stencils and stamps.

They were so easy to use created like this.  I made them all in stages.  I did all the printing, then cut them all up.  I decorated them, while watching TV,  just using Stamps, labels and stickers from my stash.  Later I pulled out all the matching ones and found elements in my stash with similar colours to match them.
Love creating PL weeks like this!

Now you dont have to make project life cards with this technique, you can print your own gift cards, birthday cards, or tags.  You can print on printer paper and cut it all up again for collage in your art Journal.  You can create really cool backgrounds on cardstock for your next Layout.  The projects and possibilities are endless.

So, Thats it from me today.....Thanks for stopping by and remember if you have any projects you have made using Shimmerz be sure to post to the Shimmerz FB Page.  We would love to see them!
