A Mixed Media Scrapbook Page Video Tutorial with Gabrielle

Hello Shimmerz fans!  It's Gabrielle here with you today to share with you a project I made using some really beautiful Shimmerz Paints products!

I was inspired by these adorable Pink Poppy blossoms a friend of mine had sent me (thanks Kim!), so I chose my colors in the pinks/peaches and soft greens.  As always, I love to show you all how this project came together, a sort of step by step.  Enjoy!......

I just love how Shimmerz Paints can be applied in so many different ways, spritzed directly from the bottles, spattered, or used with a paint brush!  Here are some close-ups of this project that you can view at your leisure....

A close up of the floral embellishments used on this page.

I created a color wash on the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces (Poppies) using Shimmerz Sweet Heart Vibez, Peachy Keen Coloringz and Berry Hot Creameez, to create a light watercolor look on the pieces.

I created a unique background design by spritzing some Sweet Heart Vibez, Peachy Keen Coloringz and Don't be Suede Coloringz directly onto my background paper and added some stamping to finish the design.

Here you can see where I applied some of the Don't Be Suede Coloringz to the edges of my embellishments to create a shadow effect.  This is a little trick that helps make the pieces pop.

I hope you enjoyed todays project and hope you feel inspired to try some of these beautiful Shimmerz Paints products. NOTE:  Be sure to mention my name 'Gabrielle' in the 'Instructions to Merchant/seller' part of your next Shimmerz Paints order to receive a FREE/Bonus Shimmerz Paints product in the color of your choice! xo
