♫ Shimmerz Mixed Media Art Journal Page By Song


Hiii friends :)

Today I am sharing an art journal page I created using ton of yummmmy Shimmerz paints. Scroll to the end for the product list.

Recently I have been crazy about teal and green colors, so as you can see, this art journal page is pretty green :) I used paints in different shades to add the subtle color variation. I think one or two colors could be a little big dull on art journal page, so I grabbed many different paints that are about the same color but has different tones. On this page, you can see the different greens, blues, and oranges.  


I layered some paper as background, and I wrinkled up the edges of the paper to give it more texture so they don't look like they are all one layer.

Around the heart shape, I used some darker color paints to create a shadow effect, and it will make the heart shape pops out more.

Inklingz: Steely Blue Eyes, Giddy About Green

Happiness - Mixed Media Layout with Shona


Hello Shimmerz Fans..and Happy Friday to you all! I have a mixed media layout to share with you today…and I wanted to play with some of my new Shimmerz products.


After I did some background masking I added some of the new Well Blue Me Down Coloringz…this is going to be a new fav color…its amazing! I added it underneath where the clusters will go and I adore the way it pokes out and adds some vibrant color to this layout. I heat set this and added some Don’t Be Suede Coloringz along beside it now. The two blended perfectly with each showing brilliantly in the background.
 
 

After the layout was complete I added some drop and dips of the two Coloringz, Bold Blimmer Blingz and Bass Knuckles Inklingz. I just adore the say this layout of my daughter and grandson turned out!

Watercolor Card Video Tutorial


Hello friends!  Gabrielle here with you today!  I have a fun and easy little card tutorial to share with you all today.  It's the weekend and I wanted to have a little fun playing with some of my Shimmerz Paint products, and some of my Dusty Attic chipboard.  So I gather up a few supplies, some watercolor paper and got playing!

Here is a quick l'il video tutorial I made up to show how I put it together!  (Note:....my lighting is bright when I film so the card appears softer in color in the video...above is the actual colors)  Enjoy!


Here are a couple of close-ups of the card design: 


I used some old stash for this card, some Prima Hydrangea blooms I had from an old kit.  I also used Martha Stewart leaf punch for the green leaves (just punched from cardstock and given a bit of a wrinkle.


I used one of my stamp designs, the Dandelion, as my center piece.  I used some white embossing powder with it....I would recommend not to press as hard as I did for this card as I feel I lost a lot of my detailing because of this :)


Products Used in this project:

Dusty Attic Chipboard:  Filigree Frame


Shimmerz Paints Products:
~ Moody Mauve Coloringz
~ Don't Citron Me Coloringz
~ Plum Pudding Sprtiz
~ Punked Up Purple Coloringz
~ Blue My Mind Inklingz

I hope you enjoyed watching me create this card today and hope you have some fun just gettin' loose and playing with your Shimmerz Paints!  You can shop for Shimmerz Paints HERE. NOTE:  Don't forget to mention my name "Gabrielle" in the Message to merchant part of your order to get your FREE/Bonus Shimmerz product in the color or your choice!  Go check out the shop, there are lots of amazing deals on Seasonal color groupings going on right now! xo

set of three cards


Today I would like to share this set of three mini cards.
Made these on a card sized mini canvas, perfect to hold all the paints!


For these cards I used the following paints:
Spritz: Caribbean Sunset
Vibez: Princess
Vibez: Razzel Dazzel Berry
Vibez: Jeni B Blue
Texturez: Brick Wall
Texturez: Tidy Widy
Dazzelerz: Grapetastic
Dazzelerz: Pucker Up Pink
Dazzelerz: Gummy Berry Blue

Card no.1
For card no.1 I used a wooden left over packaging.
Randomly painted until I was happy with the result and embellished it with flowers, metal pieces, chipboard, gauze and pearls.
Gave a final extra touch with gesso around the edges.

All the flowers were painted with the Shimmerz colors also.

The empty packaging gives a great dimensional effect!

Card no.2
Just playing with the colors on the background and added some flowers, twigs and pearls.

Made this butterfly with a template using the Dazzelerz, Gummy Berry Blue.

Card no.3
So loving these colors together....they make me happy! :)
At this card also a touch of gesso around the edges to make it a bit softer looking.

Using Texturez, Tidy Widy, for the branches.

Enjoy your day!

Shimmerz teams up with Hazel & Ruby


Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have two projects to share with you! Both are created with my Flying Unicorn Nov kit and the Off the Page project was created for Shimmerz and Hazel & Ruby. Hazel & Ruby are an amazing company that designs gorgeous supplies for crafting! They have rolls of tissue paper that are just so yummy, washi tape, fabulous stencils and much more. I have used their stencil on this project to create the NOEL title. It is so easy..you just place the letters on your paper and cut around them. They have a sticky back and they stay in place perfectly until you peel them off to use again..AND they are large so they worked perfect for me. You can also place them on your project and mist on top of them. After peeled off they reveal the paper below...so cool!!!
I have created a wall hanging for the holidays. The hanging is quite large and will be perfect in my hallway.


I did some masking on the heart frame with some Gold Mine Texturez and after that was dry I added some Good as Gold and I’m Not Limon Inklingz to finish it off.


Once dried I started to add the embellishments. The chippys are finished with some Gold Glimmer Blingz with touches of Tidy Widy Texturez to make it look like snow.


I added some Tidy Widy Texturez on the Hazel & Ruby letters to finish them off. I love the way this turned out.

 

Next up I have a layout to share.


I have used some gorgeous Patina Texturez for masking in the background.


When I decided where my clusters were going on this layout I misted the background behind where they would be with the NEW Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz…what a yummy color!


Once the layout was put together I finished it off with some sprinkles of Coloringz and Brass Knuckles Inklingz! Inklingz have fast become a huge fav for me..they are perfect for adding droplets that just shimmer!!!

 

On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a Shimmerz goodie for FREE!!!! Shimmerz has put together some gorgeous holiday collections…sets that will make your creating so much fun!
