For The Shimmerz Paints Design Team, Beauty Is In The Heart Of The Beholder

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Shimmerz Paints! Go and see all the                                                                                  fun treasures there!

To make this page, I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. I added layers of corrugated cardboard and a watercolor mat. The bottom layer of cardboard has gesso that I poured Ultra Thick Embossing Powder onto and heated till  it was just melted. You can't see the corrugated because I layered paper and tulle over it.

I coated a sheet of Prima paper with clear gesso, then applied Prima Platinum crackle paste  with a stencil and a spatula.I arranged Prima fussy cut papers and flowers around the page, then added the beads and other items.I brushed on Shimmerz Paints, and glued on more beads. I applied jaquard gold mica powder with my fingers on the raised parts of the page, and also on a lot of textured items. A lot of the dark color on the page is a mix of Run!Forest and Teal The End Of Time. 

To add visual interest I added micro beads, glass glitter,Swarovski  crystals, glass beads,gold thread, tulle,lace, iridescent wrapping paper, feathers,flowers, and shells A lot of the items are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things, and to put the cardboard layers together.                        

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