Water Color with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have a fun watercolor layout…soft blended Shimmerz colors!


For the background I did some stencil work with Muddy Buddy Texturez and Salt of the Earth Paste-eez.


If you use some clear gesso on your background paper first…add water and then colors painted on. Add more water and watch the pretty colors blend together. My background is a combination of: Ruby Lost Her Slippers and Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz, Chocolate Brownie Coloringz and lots of Quite Yer Wine-n Vibez.

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!

Always Cute / Missy Whidden

Hey, friends!  Missy here, and I have a new layout to share with you.  I recently found this gorgeous patterned paper with all these butterflies on it at Michael's.  I bought two sheets of it because I knew I could fussy cut them and create something pretty.  I used the colors in the butterflies to make my color palette for the background.  I used a lot of Shimmerz products on this!  They matched perfectly, and I just love how this turned out.  My background paper is an old Fancy Pants Hopscotch paper from 2012!  Yay for using up older stash!

I started out with a big die cut butterfly from my stash.  I tried using it as mask, meaning I laid it down and applied the paint over it. It didn't turn out as great as I'd hoped, so I just wound up creating a messy and abstract background.  I used the packaging technique as well as splattering with my brush.

The colors of these Shimmerz just knocks my socks off!  This gorgeous purple is new Inklingz called Plum Crazy.  The pinks here are a combination of Vibez Sweetheart and another new Inklingz called Hot Stuff.  I splattered some Vibez Sunset Strip and some Inklingz Miner Miner 49er as well.  I didn't need too many embellishments for this...I just added some tangled thread and some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

Here you can the shimmery gold.  The Shimmerz Paints layer very well together, and it's fun to mix and match different ones.  I did add some tissue paper and foam under my photos to give them some dimension.

To jazz up the background even more, I traced a circle in pencil and then machine stitched over it several times using metallic gold thread.  I love these beautiful!  The green here is Creameez Lettuce Get Together, and the blue is Vibez Jeni B Bleu.

I have been hoarding these shiny gold Thickers.  This layout was perfect for them.  The gold on the butterflies and these gold words bring it all together.  I added my journaling underneath the title.

Here's the top of the page.  Aren't these photos too cute?  My daughter is silly hot mess, but she sure is adorable :)

Here's one more close-up.  I love this green!  Looks so pretty up against the pinks.

I had a blast making this!  I can't get enough of Shimmerz...they are so fun to create with and the results are always awesome.  Check out the store and you'll be blown away by all the colors!  I have a process video here for sure to watch it to see how I created this page.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Vibez--Sweetheart, Mango Tango, Sunset Strip, Jeni B Bleu
Inklingz--Plum Crazy, Hot Stuff, Miner Miner 49er
Creameez--Ride the Tide, Lettuce Get Together

Happy fall | Anna Komenda

Hello all mixed media fans. It's Anna here with my newest tutorial with fantastic Shimmerz products. This month I created a fall layout inspired by changes in nature, that are happening right now around me.

I took white cardstock, covered it with gesso and used several mists like Vibez and Spritz to create stains in few fall colors. You can find them all in the end of this post with the links to the shop.

I chose two pictures of my daughter throwing leaves in the park. It was really warm and beautiful day and she was so cheerful. I wanted to add more leaves around the pictures as a tribute to the photos.

I used Silhouette Cameo to cut them using pattered paper and a watercolor paper. I colored watercolor paper leaves using Aqua Huez and Inklingz.

I really like this page and how messy it looks. Like a leaves threw away by my daughter.

As always I have a video for you. You can watch all the creative process with my voice - over. I sound like a man this time because of my rhinitis. So be prepared :D

Shimmerz products:
Aqua Huez: Cuppa Joe, Blue Moon, Crazy Daisy, Seeing Red, 14 Carrots

Don't forget to mention my name while placing the order. You will get free mini product :)

Thank you for stopping by and see you next month.

XO Anna

Laugh as Much As You Breathe | Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share a Scrapbook Layout with you all. I am scrapping a photo of myself from my Senior year in High School. This was taken during my Senior Photo Session. I chose some soft colors to compliment the colors in the photo.

I began with a Black and white Patterned Paper. I used some gesso to prep the page and added a few colors of spray mist. I used all shades of pink, a Coloringz in Pink Stilettos, a Vibez in Pop Art Pink and a Spritz in Cotton Candy. I sprayed them directly onto the page focusing on the bottom right hand corner and around the area where my photo would sit.
I then used my favorite Paste-eez in the color Tree Hugger and used that through a Lattice stencil in two areas, to the left of the photo and on top of the photo. I layered a few patterned papers behind the photo and also used some beautiful fussy cut flowers around the photo.
Lastly, I added my tittle as well as a few other stickers, keeping everything around the photo. I used a Coloringz in Night Moves and also added some Ink Splatters as a finishing touch. 

I love how it turned out. 
Products Used: Coloringz: Pink Stilettos, Night Moves
Spritz: Cotton Candy
Vibez: Pop Art Pink
Paste-Eek: Tree Hugger

Arty Tag by Joyce

A large tag created with Deep Blue Sea, Heavy Metal, and Texturez Tidy Widy.

What I like about the Texturez product is that you can obtain a least two different results using the same product.  Let me show you two of the results:

On the above photo, you can achieve a crackle effect by doing the following:

Apply the product, than place a piece of paper firmly over the product and carefully lift up the paper.  It lifts some of the textured bits within the product and leaves a cool crackle wrinkle pattern behind. Then mist with your favorite Shimmer Mist spray.

On the above photo, you can achieve a highly textured effect by doing the following:
Apply Texturez on top of the chipboard, and hit it with a heat gun and watch the product bubble up.  Some Deep Blue Sea and Heavy Metal was spritz over the chipboard in various places.

I hope I have inspired you to use Texturez in one of the two ways above!
