You Shine - A bright layout with Karine

Hi crafty friends,

Here is my first layout for this month. I wanted to make something bright.

I used Jeni B Bleu Vibez, Hermit the Frog Vibez and Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz to create my background. I added a lot of stencilling work with modeling paste, along with glass beads and micro beads to add a lot of texture. 

I used Jelly Bean Green Dazzelers to color my Blue Fern Studios chipboard title. 

I hope my creation inspires you.

Heritage Journal with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans! Recently I decided to do up a Heritage Journal as a gift. Today I have a few pages to share. I think my journal pages are more like mini layouts, but this is the way I journal. I am having fun creating this book so far. On these 4 pages I used Inklingz in French Twist, Barnished Buckle and Giddy About Green. I find the Inklingz add beautiful color while leaving the pages looking old.


This is my dad when he was very very young, Fun to create with Heritage photos!


After the pages are all put together I painted on Inklingz and added some water to move the paints around.


I love the look of the Inklingz on the chipboard pieces…so shimmery!

If you mix up your Inklingz and put a put some on a craft mat you can use lids to dip into it then apply to your project to get the circles.


After my pages were done I added a few splats of each color in the background. This is just the start of my book…I will be back another day to share more pages!


On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration and watch for NEW Shimmerz Product information soon! Take care and happy scrapping!

Seaside Canvas

Hello!!!  Stacey here with you today to share a canvas I made over the holiday break :) 
I was at our little holiday house by the beach when I created this.........hence the beachy inspiration!
Shimmerz products used:
Coloringz Well Blue Me Down and Don't Citron Me
Inklingz Blue Lagoon and Pugnacious Purple
A bit of stencilling for the background and then I added the Coloringz sprays.  I sprayed some water over the top to give it a watercolour effect.  Do you spy the cute crab down the bottom....he blends into the canvas just like they do on the beach also :)
Then I started to layer on my embellishments.........

I wanted to add a little dimension into the canvas, so I added the dark colour Pugnacious Purple to a few of the areas under the shells.

I really hope you like my canvas piece today. 
This piece actually brings me to the end of sharing my Shimmerz projects over here.  Unfortunately I am stepping down from the Shimmerz design team.  I am so very thankful to the wonderful Shimmerz family for having me all of these years!  I will miss you all loads!
Much love xxxxx

Adorable - A sweet layout with Karine

I'm sharing today a layout made while playing with my Shimmerz Paints. I can't get enough of this stuff!

My background is made with thorn doilies glued with gel medium, modeling paste, very heavy gesso and joint tape.

I wanted soft colors that will suit my paper colors and that will make my daughter pretty skin stand out. I chose Bed of Roses Spritz and Egg Noggin' Vibez. I applied one color at a time, making bigger or smaller drops with my paint brush. I made sure to heat set my first color before adding the second one: I didn't want them to blend.

My chipboards are from Blue Fern Studios. The title (Adorable) is also from Blue Fern Studios. I used my two Shimmerz Paints colors to paint it.
