Nature Walk with Amy Prior + a Process Video

Hey there Shimmerz fans!!! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing some scrapbook layouts with lots of Shimmerz goodness mixed with the Scraps of Darkness August Kit.

Remember, you can purchase all the Shimmerz paint products that I have used and more, by visiting the Shimmerz paint store here. Don't forget to type in my name, "Amy Prior", inside the comments to merchant section when checking out through Paypal. This will entitle you to FREEBIES so what do you have to lose!

This first layout has been created on a gorgeous piece of cream patterned paper that was accented using lots of gorgeous Shimmerz paints. Firstly I have added some Royal Purple Shimmerz to the background adding lots of water. I have then added some Evergreen Shimmerz over the purple to bring that green back into the background a little more. I then decided that I wanted to dull it all back down a few notches, so I have added some stencilling over the top of the colour using some Shimmerz Texturez in Gold Mine and Arti-choked Colours. 

Shimmerz was also used to decorate the Chipboard from Blue Fern Studios alongside some chunky glass glitter from Stampendous. So much fun texture on this page, and as always, lots of fun and funky layers.

This next layout was created, again using the Scraps of Darkness kit, this time starting with a darker background paper that was given some stencilling treatment that I like to call my "Cheat Marble Technique". This is such an easy effect to pull off especially with stencils and you can see a complete step-by-step process of this entire layout by watching the video below. Before i have added the marbled stencilling, I have smeared lots of Patina paint medium over the background to really define the area that my photo was going to have framed around. 

Again lots and lots of gorgeous layers of texture complimented with pops of colour around the photo to help draw your eye in.

Well that is it from me today lovely fans, keep tuning in daily to see all the fabulous new inspiration from our amazing Shimmerz Design and Education Teams, and until next time, happy scrapping!

Layout with Felicity

Hello! Felicity here today.

I have been playing around with Shimmerz colouringz and Dazzerlz.

Products used: Colouringz: Oh say can U see, Well Blue me down and Peachy keen
                        Dazzelerz: Sea U in the mornin! and Barely Blue

I love using the Dazzelerz with stencils. I used a big flower stencil here and then layed my Dazzelerz on.  I love the two affect it gave.

I simply sprayed the colouringz and then let it drip under my photo matt and lastely I used the nozzel to splatter.

Hope you like my layout!

Having fun with sprays - Layout with Karine


It's my turn again today to share with you a layout I created. Here it is.

I started with a paper from the Thoughts Keepers collection, from 7Dots Studios, on which I applied clear gesso. Then, in three places, I applied very heavy white gesso through a stencil and glued lace, doilies and joint tape.

I then stamped a few motifs to add texture.

Next, I applied the following colors with a paint brush: Vibez Jeni B Bleu, Coloringz Well Blue Me Down and Oh Say Can You Sea, as well as Spritz Bamboo Leaf. I used my brush to add drops all around.

All was left was the embellishments.


You can order Shimmerz products directly from the Shimmerz Paints Store. If you do, don't forget to mention my name (Karine Gagnon) in the «Instruction to Merchant/seller» part of your order form (just below your name and address). After clicking «add», you'll get a FREE product in the color of your choice.

Time - Layout with Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have a layout to share and the photo is me this year at my birthday dinner!  


After I added some stamping to the background I added splashes of Coloringz Punked Up Purple and Spritz Plum Pudding!

These two colors are just gorgeous together and added the perfect color for my background.

After the layout was complete I added drops of my favourite…Barnished Buckle Inklingz, adding a beautiful touch of shimmer here and there!
