Its Lydell again here with another Layout share.
Its using another palette from The Color Room, I often find its a fun place to start, using specific colours and building a page from there. So this one used red, black, white and gold.
So take a look.
I used My Bleeding Heart Coloringz to match the red in the palette and I sprayed some white flowers and splattered drips over areas of the background, by taking the lid off and using the 'tube' inside to flick the paint. I also saturated some punched heart shapes.
I used some Powder puff Pearlz to add drips on my patterned paper and to roughly paint the edges of my already grunged and distressed paper.
Next I used the left over and semi dried up paint of the My Bleeding Heart, on my craft sheet, adding Anchors Away Coloringz, Hot fudge and licorice Spritz, which I mixed with a paint brush. I stamped a stamp (from Stamp-It) into it and stamped the water colour effect in the two opposite corners under the Black paper....this turned out really cool! Using the paintbrush I also dry brushed around the edge of the background and in the centres of some of the red flowers adding some nice dimension......From there I positioned all the flowers and added all the other bits and pieces. My glue of choice is always Helmar 450, which holds even the most dimensional items securely to a page, and never warps the paper or cardstock.
Hope you will go get your Shimmerz on now and create something amazing!
Hi everyone, Stacey Young here today, sharing my DT project with you. I created these 2 little tags blending the following colours together:
Coloringz in Mandarin Mai Tai, Pink Stiletto, Lime In Da Coconut and Mon Shari
Vibez in Grape Escape
Blingz in Hottie Pink
I started with my background blending together Coloringz Lime In Da Coconut and Mon Shari. I stamped the background and then proceeded with my flowers and pin. Also giving the flowers a touch of shine with the Vibez.
This time I blended Coloringz in Pink Stiletto and Mandarin Mai Tai. I love the rich, bright colour that the Coloringz bring to any layout or project.
Thanks so much for popping by today, have a great weekend:)
I am returning with a project I worked on today using Lots of Shimmerz Vibez in "Blue Jeans" and lots of flowers.
I used the Blue Jeans Vibez to make my page 'work' with the embellishments and florals I intended to use.
Take a look....
I used a color Palette from The Color Room based on some Manor House Creations Flowers I have. I selected some Shimmerz Paint which matched the blue in the flowers.
Then I used a mask to create some interest in the background, just on a white sheet of cardstock.
I sprayed doilies, Flower stamens, and die cuts to carry the colour over the page
I love how Shimmerz can be used to build a page from the ground up, or you can just select one or two colours to match your pre-existing embellishments and make everything meld together, like I did today on this page.
Do you hear it? We do. But then again, it's because we are the proud parents of this wailing, little, bubba.
I used Shimmerz in several ways for this project. I first coated the background cardboard in gesso, and then spritzed a combination of Treasured Hymn, Rolling in the Hay, and Pop Art Pink to the background. I then used a brayer to combine the color in some areas.
I then dipped my brush in the same colors, and lightly painted my letters, and some areas on the crumpled paper, to add a distressed look. I also dripped some paint above the music paper on the right.
I then used Spiced Cider Blingz to drip along the photo for added grunge to the project. :))
Yes, this bubs is precious, and yes he is loud when he cries, but I am going to cherish each music note that he wails at me because time is already flying by!
(I used the Swirlydoos April kit, Whispers of Spring, to create this as well!)
If any of you mom's out there (er, I mean, Easter Bunnies) are tired of that messy, plastic Easter grass that fills all of your little one's baskets... today's post is for you! This Easter Bunny gets frustrated with the clean-up of that stuff, not to mention it sticking to everything, and my youngest trying to eat it... so this year, I decided to do something a little different. And fun.
I had a couple of old pairs of khaki pants lying around and I decided to cut those into messy looking strips. I made two light colored batches and two darker, since I have 2 girls and 2 boys - and all their baskets need some grass in them. This is what I started with...
And after using Mandarin Mai Tai, Pink Stiletto, No Yoking, and Ruby on the light colored strips, and Lime in Da Coconut, Mama Sings the Blues, and Sea Monkey on the darker strips, this is what they looked like...
As I sprayed the color, I used my other hand to rotate, flip, and mix up the strips in each pile, so the color ended up random and beautiful! Here are some close-ups...
And here are my baskets, with my homemade grass in them! Best part? I can reuse this grass over and over, yay! No mess, totally easy, and I think it looks pretty Easter cool. :)
ShimmerzTM water-based paints have the spunk and sparkle to help any project shine! Stay tuned for numerous ideas for ways to use these marvelous iridescent paints. Be sure to ask for Shimmerz by name, because any other paint is not the same.
