Perfect **Shimmerz**

HI everyone... today I am up on the Shimmerz blog with a little Pictorial on how I did my background using some yummy Shimmerz products.

Step 1:

I have distressed a sheet of corrugated board and some paper and glued them together. I then misted with some water and gave it a white wash with some gesso.

Step 2:

I added 2 more pieces of corrugated cardboard and more gesso on it. Use your heat tool to dry.

Step 3:

Use some Shimmerz Spritz Carribean Sunset and cover the gesso areas. I used a pencil to mark where my photo will go.

Step 4:

I have used a paintbrush and some Vibez Before Dawn to make the drips and splats on the page. Don’t be afraid, tip the paper and watch the drips form. Use your heat tool to dry.

Step 5:

Next is some crazy stitching on the background. FUN!

Step 6:

I have some gauz and I have used Shimmerz to color it. Just spray it on, and use your heat tool to dry.

Step 7:

I now have arranged all of the embellishments. Cover the photos with paper towel and mist with the Shimmerz Carribean Sunset all of the flowers and embellishments. This will tie them all in together with the layout and give them all a fabulous shimmer.

This is my finished layout of my grandson..what a cutie pie!!
Look at that yummy Shimmer:)

Drips and Splats are so much fun!
