Hi all! It's been crazy with the weather here in Canada! Just when I think the summer weather is finally here, we get another cold spell! But I'm not letting that stop me from having some warm summery fun making up a beach style canvas! I recently renovated my laundry room and now am at the decorating stage. The colors I chose were in the soft aquas (kind of beachy/Cape Cod look). So I wanted to create some art work for my walls. So I gathered together some of my favorite Shimmerz paints products and got to playing!
Shimmerz Paints Products used in this video:
~ Taupe of the World Spritz
~ Don't Be Suede Coloringz
~ Glorious Day Vibez
~Jeni B Bleu Vibez
~ Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz
~ Lime Shimmerz
~ Olive Green Shimmerz
~ Golden Wheat Shimmerz
As always I created a video tutorial so that you can watch step by step how I created this canvas. So grab yourself an iced tea, sit back, relax and enjoy! xo
I hope you enjoyed watching this project come together. Here are some of the close-ups that you can view at your leisure (the video doesn't give you a long time to look :) ....
I made some of the embellishments with some Martha Stewart air dry clay (starfish, barnacles).
All the chipboard accents are from Dusty Attic Designs. I love the effect the Shimmerz paints give the crooked fence design, the little bits of mica in the paint helps add that aged texture to the chipboard.
I also added some glass seed beads to the canvas for added texture.
I was really happy with the way the Taupe of the World Spritz looked on my chipboard anchor, I think it gives it a nice iron look!
