Selfie : Canvas with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans! Shona here and today I have a fun mixed media canvas to share! I had so much fun adding gorgeous Shimmerz colors to bring this canvas to life. Me and my buddy Olaf selfie.

To start I added some Spritz in Carribbean Sunset, Terra Cotta and Don’t Be Suede. I added each color to the background and set with a heat tool….misting with some water to blend them together!

My next step was to add some stencil work with Texturez Tidy Widy…Texturez is perfect for masking and stencil work!

After the canvas was complete I added some splatters of Inlingz in Gosh Garnet, Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Miner Miner 49er. The Creative Embellishments chippys are also finished with some Spotlight White Inklingz to give them a beautiful Shimmer!
On your next order mention my name in the comments at check out and Stacey will send you something extra! Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Take care and happy scrapping!

Creating A Background Using Dazzlerz with Adrienne Alvis

Hey everyone!

I'm here today with a layout I created using some Dazzlerz dimensional paste and Coloringz spray ink...

I started by creating an easy and messy background design using some Halloween-inspired Dazzlerz colors. I simply dry brushed them onto a piece of white cardstock using a large paint brush.

Before the Dazzlerz dried, I splattered a few drops of Coloringz "Night Moves" spray ink around my page. Once my background was dry, I started to layer my photo, embellishments, and letter stickers on top to complete my design.

Shimmerz Paints Used: Dazzlerz - Foiled Again, Licorice Stick, Dreamscicle; Coloringz - Night Moves

I hope you enjoy my process video for this layout!

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you have a great day!

Can Spring inspired projects produce Spring weather?

Hi Everyone, it is Beck BT here again this week.  I'm still trying to encourage Spring weather to hit us down in Melbourne with a love of sharing spring inspired projects.  I'm hoping it might work something like a rain dance because gee the weather has been so cold windy and wet so far this season. This week I am sharing with you a card with a cool wood veneer altering technique using Shimmerz products of course!!

I've created a video so you can see how I altered the wood veneer as well as how my card came together.

Shimmerz Products used:

Texturez paste in Patina
Vibes Sprays in 'Taupe of the mornin'

Here are some step pictures getting you nice and up close to that wood veneer altering process.

The process:
Add Texturez paste to the wood veneer piece liberally.

Apply a heat gun to the area allowing the paste to bubble up and then shrink back down

Apply a spray of the Shimmerz Vibes spray in a contrasting color

Wipe over very gently with a wet wipe to remove some of the vibes spray and allow the paste color to show through

Add as a beautiful embellishment to your project as seen on this card

It was so much fun creating this card, so I can't help but share more pictures.  I adore how the wood veneer pieces came.  They made the perfect accent to the sweet florals on the card.

What do you get inspired by?  Maybe you can find some inspiration from your local weather!

 Thanks so much for heading over to the blog today to check out my project!  

Don't forget to mention my name when you order for some free product!  WOOT!  

Till next time

Like what I have used and would like to get your hands on some?  See below:

Another layout using two products

 Hello everyone! Felicity back here today!
I have another exciting page for you. Oh, I really hope you like it.

Remember last week, when I shared a page with you using just 2 Shimmerz products? (Here's the link to the post).  Well, I have another variation with the same 2 products.

Its so easy and so much fun.
Just a light coat of gesso. Then once its dry I used a wet brush and painted my colours on.
I add some gel medium through a stencil and lightly painted with Shimmerz again.
Now,  i used a baby wipe, my magic wipes, tee hee, to wipe a little colour away to add another affect.
A few paint splatters to finish it off.

Isnt it so pretty, with just 2 colours. You dont need a lot of Shimmerz, to make things look pretty.

I really hope you like my pages with just 2 colours and that it inspires you to create with Shimmerz or even add just a couple to your mixed media stash.
