You Rock

Hi Friends,

It's Renee Aslette here, to share with you a layout video tutorial
I created using all sorts of Shimmerz Paints yummies!

There is nothing like creating in the midst of a cyclone,
which is happening where I live in Australia.
It has given me the opportunity to take my mind off
all that is going on and just get creative.

So here goes!

I just love how grungy it turned out!

The Shimmerz Products I used are:

Shimmerz Vibez - Sunset Strip & Snow Storm.
Shimmerz Coloringz - Peachy Keen, Oh Say Can You Sea & Night Moves.
Shimmerz Inklingz - Tarnished Treasure.
Shimmerz Paste-eez - Lava Flow.
Shimmerz Acri Tonez - Shimmerz Tar, Tar.

Here are some close-ups:

You can see all the layers.

Loads of color.

I have created a video tutorial for this layout,
so you can see how I created the layers using Shimmerz Paints and the
Fancy Pants Designs - True Friends Collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx

And don't forget!!

Underwater layout with Anna Komenda

Hello Shimmer fans. It's Anna here with my next project created with fabulous paints and mists. To be honest - when I started creating this page, I didn't know how it will end. I had this cute picture of y daughter in the swimming pool and I had this cute mermaid from Crate Paper collection. All I knew is that I want them together on one page.

For my mermaid layout I needed to create whole sea of water. I used watercolor paper and sprayed it with mists. I used wet brush to blend them together.

I wanted bubbles so I added this fun bubble foil. I sew it with sewing machine but it can be tricky. Foil is stopping the step from moving. But there is a solution - put a piece of vellum on top of your foil, sew through it and after sewing is done - just tear off the vellum. I also made some bubbles on my background using Dazzlers and stencil.

To get more whimsical effect I painted seaweed using all sorts of green paints. All my underwater layout needed right now was a little of embellishing.

Thanks to paints and mists I created colorful and busy design with almost no patterned papers. This is what I love the most while working with paints. You can make any kind of design using any color scheme in just a minutes. 

I have a process video for this page for You.

Shimmer products:
Aqua Huez - Leapin' lizard
Inklingz - Honey do list

Remember to mention my name while shopping at the store. You will get free mini product :)

Art Journaling With Irit

Hi! Irit here and I'm so excited to share with you my latest project for Shimmerz. Today I'm showing you how to create a simple and lovely art journal spread using Shimmerz goodies. Here's my finished project-

I started by simply spreading Acritonez in 3 sheets to the wind and pinkadelic. These paints dry super fast, so I could move on to the next step almost immediately.

I added some messy circle lines and lots of splatters with Coloringz in Well Blue Me Down, Glorious Days and Jeni B Blue Vibez.

I love how the ink sprays behave differently on Acritonez. It's almost like a bokeh effect.  Next I added some photos and patterned paper from Maggie Holmes Bloom collection.  To make it feel more like a part of the art journal I colored some of the edges in Sky's the Limit and Refresh mint Creameez. 

There's also a video tutorial-

 Don't forget to mention my name when placing an order, you'll receive a freebie to try!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Love Canvas with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have part two of the baby gifts I made. A fun canvas loaded with Shimmerz color! The photo is my grand daughter and I put a new baby pic in its place.

I used all the same colors from the jar set I made earlier this month. Texture and dimension were added to the background first with some crackle paste and Shimmerz Salt of the Earth Paste-eez. Bed of Roses Spritz and Hot Fudge Vibez dazzled up this pretty canvas to create a girly grunge canvas  

The Creative Embellishments chipboard is finished with a coat of Spotlight White Inklingz. To finish the canvas off I added some slashes of Inklingz in Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Coral Reef.

Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Look for us on Instagram too! Don’t forget to mention my name at the store checkout for your free sample of Shimmerz!!

Take care and happy scrapping!

Felicity/ Easter layout using Actritonez and Aqua Huez

Hello Shimmerz fans,
Easter is not far away and shimmerz has some really beautiful shimmery colours to help document Easter this year. Today I have a layout using a real mix of products.

Products used: Aqua huez - Little Lily/ crazy daisy / blue me away / little boy blue 
Actritonez - 3 sheets to the wind / pinkadelic 
Coloringz - pink stiltoes / heidi ho blue 
Vibez - jeni B Blue/ sweet heart 

First off for my background I mixed some Actritonez with coloringz. The Actritonez acted as my gesso because there self priming and would stop the coloringz from bleding through the page.  I added is some Aqua Huez and paint splatters.

I started then building my page. I pop in some of those flowers that I made with paste-eez and coloringz. Pop to this video to see how I made them.

I used some scrap pieces of paper to create some of my own colour cardstock with the left over shimmerz. You can see the purple at the top of the page and the round circle.

Here is a process video to see how i made this layout with Shimmerz.
