An Easy Background Idea with Adrienne Alvis

Hello Shimmerz fans!

I'm here today with a simple and easy background idea using some Texturez and Vibez paints from Shimmerz that I used to create this layout...

I started by choosing my favorite colored Texturez paste and a stencil. I used a piece of white cardstock for my background paper, but this could also be done on patterned paper or vellum as well. 

I placed my stencil on top of the white cardstock and adhered it by using a little washi tape. Next, I used a small spatula to add The Tide That Binds Texturez paste on top of the stencil. I did this twice...once at the top of my page and then again at the bottom, reversing the stencil. 

After the Texturez paste dried, I spritzed a few areas around my page using some Razzledazzle Berry Vibez spray ink. And there you have it...a simple and easy background! 

I added photos of my daughter from this past Halloween to my page and used lots of items from the Cute Girl collection by Crate Paper for my embellishments.

I love how I captured her Halloween costume (a unicorn) on this page without using any orange or any of your typical Halloween-inspired colors.

I also added a few circles that I created for a previous Shimmerz post around my page to add some color pop and texture.

Shimmerz Paints Used: Texturez - The Tide That Binds; Vibez - Razzle-dazzle Berry

I love using Shimmerz items to create fun and easy backgrounds for my layouts! It helps me experiment with colors and ideas and helps me push my creativity a bit further, too. Thanks so much for joining me today...I hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Adrienne
Thanks so much for your comment. Unfortunately I don't have any information on Paloma the Peace Dove. I signed to be a hostess but I have heard no more, in fact I had forgotten about it because I have not seen it anywhere else. It was such a good idea but I thought it hadn't been successful.
Your daughter looks fantastic in her unicorn outfit and your layout is super.
Best Wishes Jo
