Hello friends! I am here to share my latest project for Shimmerz Paints. I had a lot of fun creating this Art Journal Page. I am working in My Daler Rowney Mixed Media Travelbook. I had a lot of fun blending the beautiful Creameez to match my inspiration, a chipboard word from the Pink Paislee and Paige Evans Fancy Free Collection.

I love how this turned out. For me, it ius just so relaxing to play with fun paints and try different techniques. The Shimmerz paints match the Pink Paislee collection perfectly.

There’s a video on my channel if you’d like to watch my process.

Remember, If you will be placing any orders from the  Shimmerz store…….

For my layout I began with 12×12 American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I am scrapbooking a photo of my adorable niece being her silly self. I had a thought of an all white layout. I began by creating a fun unique background with a stencil and Gloss Medium. While the gloss medium was wet I sprinkled some of the beautiful Glass Slippers Sequins on top and let them dry with the gloss medium.

As a photo mat I used one of the White Lace Paper Doilies and a Large Glassine Bag which I folded on one end so create some texture. I decided to bring some grey, silver and light pink into the mix.

I added a few sticker embellishments from my stash which I placed on some fun foam and then fussy cut out. I also scattered around some of the Felt-Fetti Hearts in white and two of the new colors, light and dark grey.

 

I also added the silver stars from the Alma Mater Sequin Mix and the light Pink ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix. I added my tittle using  a silver word from a Thickers pack and I also used some of the silver arrows and hearts from that pack.

I added some silver ink splatters and some detailing with a dark grey American Crafts pen. Finally, I matted the whole layout on a Grey and white Patterned Paper from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge paper pad.

Hello friends! I am back to share another project for the Sketch N Scrap Design Team. Today I am following an awesome card sketch by one of our very talented sketch artist’s Mandy Reedyk.

For this card I began with a white card base and  I chose several patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge Paper pad. Even my sentiment is one of the cut apart sheets from the paper pad. I love this card sketch. This card was very easy to make and I absolutely love how it turned out. Another great sketch from our team.

Scrapbook Process: Sparkle & Shine

I am a member of quite a few of the Scrapbook Related Facebook groups. I love the inspiration and interaction with other wonderful Crafty ladies. This month two of the groups I belong to, The Pink Camera Community and Scrapbook like a Superhero are both hosting Valentines Day themed challenges. The challenge itself is to use hearts on your layout. I decided to scrapbook a picture of my adorable niece.

I used some heart rub ons on the left hand side of my white cardstock. I then created a messy frame for my photo using some Faber Castell Gelatos which I mixed with some water. I tried to keep this layout nice and simple so I did some simple layering using a few sheets of paper from the Crate Paper Notes and Things 6×6 paper pad. I added some flat enamel dots and jewels from my stash.  I also used a Cork Bow from the Dear Lizzy Documentary Collection.

For my tittle I used a few word puffy stickers from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge Collection. I added two sheets of paper from a DCWV Paper pad as a frame for my layout. As a finishing touch I added some silver sequin stars scattered around in a few areas of the page. In the end the layout was exactly what I envisioned. Soft, Pretty, Light and airy.
