With the holiday season fast approaching why not think about some personalized gifts for your family you still have plenty of time to work on them. If that is not in your plans you could try some small personalized tags for your holiday sweetness and goodie bags. I will be putting together some items later this month and I will post the items for you to see.
All of my project in Somerset Memories Autumn 2010 feature Shimmerz Paints and Helmar Adhesive. Somerset Memories should be in all of your favorite stores this week like Joann's. Michael's, and Barnes and Nobles. If you can not find the publication at your favorite store you can order directly from Stampington Studios this is a link to their site. You will also be able to see a sample of some of the other wonderful articles in the magazine this publication. There are lots of paint projects to inspire you to pull out your Shimmerz and get to work on some new projects or Holiday Gifts. Maybe get out side this weekend pull something from nature, use it as a mask or creative ideas and spritz and paint your heart our!
Live The Life You Have Imagined
is another page that was created on cardboard with molding paste added to the top. I applied the paste over the top of burlap, assorted laces and designs. This would allow me to hi light the textures of the page with Shimmerz Paints. The laces and papers on the page are also painted with Shimmerz Paints.
Shimmerz Paints- Shimmerz in Concrete, Treasured Hymn and Baby's Breath
Shimmerz Pearls in Grammie Berry, Expresso, Blue in to Town.
I also used Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding on the laces that are in the molding paste at the top of the page.
Self Portrait Then and Now
The first photo is my dad taking a self portrait of he and my mom, the second one is of them last year at my daughter's wedding.
The two boxes are actually attached and are recycled cigar box lids. The flowers are rolled Dupioni Silk that I spritzed with Shimmerz paints after I rolled them. I have since been working on Jewelry and figured out it the fabric remains much softer if you paint if before you create the flower.
For this project I used Shimmerz Spritzers Paint in Treasured Hymn, Baby's Breath and Concrete.
