For The Shimmerz Paints Design Team, Love Is A Canvas Furnished By Nature And Embroidered By Imagination

   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. In between more layers of corrugated I taped on a mat made out of canvas. 

I coated a sheet of Prima paper with a layer of clear gesso, then applied Prima Platinum crackle paste  with a stencil and a spatula.I arranged some embellishments around the page, then layers of Shimmerz Paints. I applied jaquard gold and mica powder with my fingers on the raised parts of the page, and also on a lot of textured items. 

To add visual interest I added micro beadsglass beads, glass glitter,Swarovski  crystals, a feather, gold thread, fussy cut images from Prima papers,and bling and metal from my stash. 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!
