September 2021 Color Kitz | Brianna Lepper
To start, I took all of the colors in the kit (minus Silver Bells) and put them all down on my glass mat. I then took the inner leaf pieces from the cut file and smooshed them into the colors allowing them to blend and mix together. This technique totally gives it a different look when the paint dries and I love it! It does get your hands messy, but who doesn't like to get a little messy every now and then??
While the leaves were drying, I pulled out a piece of thick white cardstock and added gesso to it. Once it was ready, I sprayed and splattered all of the colors in the kit into a circle shape. I wanted a fun background for the cut file to sit on top of. After it was dry, I adhered the cut file down and added foam tape to all of my leaf pieces and put them back in their appropriate spots. I love how it turned out!
Next, I pulled out the Dotz from the kit and created three different embellishment clusters using some floral ephemera as well. I added in some tangled thread and adhered the Dotz to each cluster. I then took the foliage stickers from the kit and tucked/layered them in. I popped them up on foam tape to give them some extra lift.
Here's another shot of the Dotz:
I embellished the rest of my page and that finished off my page! The background and cut file were both super busy so I didn't want to take too much away from them.
Have you tried the smooshing technique using your Shimmerz Paints? It's so fun! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way!
