Favorite - A layout with Karine


I'm up today to share with you a layout that I made using beautiful Shimmerz paints.

As always, my first step was to apply a thin coat of clear gesso. Next, I applied randomly three colors of Shimmerz. I just love the rich colors and the shimmering effect I get when I use these. For this layout, I used Magenta, Sugar Plum and Royal Purple. To help with blending, I sprayed a bit of water.

To add a bit more texture, I applied modeling paste through a stencil.

To go with the picture and the Shimmerz, I added sequins, for extra shine and sparkle.

I wanted to add drops of paint, as I often do with my layouts. I think it adds a finishing touch. I simply dipped my paintbrush in the paint and added drops here and there.

I hope it inspires you.
