  Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new design team post for the amazing Shimmerzpaints! I love their                                                                    rich texture and colors! 

                                                             Photo credit: Susi Neumair,at Unsplash.

To make this page I put the layers under the photo together first,including taping water color paper under the image to make it stronger and lie flat. Below that is a mat of watercolor paper, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most the paper from the surface of the cardboard, and painted it with white gesso.I sprinkled on Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, and heated it til it was just melted. I added layers of cardboard to add dimension, and taped it to the background paper with double sided foam tape.

 I applied Prima Platinum texture paste to 49 And Market paper with a small spatula and Prima and Tim Holtz stencils.

I attached the flowers first with double sided foam tape. I added the beads, then the paint.

I painted the chipboard,watercolor mat, and corrugated with Me & Blue, and Pink- A- Boo Inklingz. I added a thick layer of Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint.

On the background paper I used Pixie Dust BlingzImperial AmethystBlue My Mind, A Rose(By Any Other Name),and Pink-A-Boo Inklingz.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter, clear acrylic rhinestones,glass beads, pearls,rhinestones,swarovski crystals,glass hearts,pressed flowers,a shell,iridescent wrapping paper,fussy cut images from the Botanist's Sticker Anthology, gold leaf,tulle,sisal,metal from Reneabouquets,and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets and Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. 

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
