MIXED MEDIA: Girl canvas


Hello.

Just wanted to pop by with a little canvas I made using lots of shimmerz and mixed media.
I created this for a little girls birthday, needless to say she loved it.


Products used: Dazzlerz: Tutti Frutti / Sea U in  the mornin' / foiled again
                       Aqua Huez: Little Lily/ Hottie Pink/ Rockin Robin/ Crazy Daisy / Honey Do List. 

 Firstly I started off with tearing some scraps of paper to create the dress on the girl.  
I then gesso to whole canvas.
I started then my colouring the skin and hair with some wax crayons.

Then I used lots of Aqua Huez for the dress to add colour and dazzerlez to add deminsion. I keep layering the colours till I was happy.

I then used the Dazzelerz with a stencil to create some flowers.



Lastly I add some embellishements and shimmerz flicks of Aqua Huez.

LAYOUT: shimmerz



Hello.
Just popping by with a fun layout I created with lots of shimmerz and pretties.

Products used: Inklingz - blue lagoon/ can't elope/Honey do list
                       Aqua huez - chester nut / green with envy
                      Creameez - Ride the tide / Lettuce get together 




To create my background, I started with a gesso background. Then I spritz it with lots of water. I then started by adding drops of my shimmerz on to the page and moving the page about so that the colours would blend. 
I did the same process twice. Allowing the colours to dry in between. By doing it twice, it made the shimmerz darker and added more depth to the colours. 
I then added some modelling paste with a stencil.
Once that dried I add more colour with Aqua Huez as those colours are a little bolder.  
I also used a straw to blow the colour about.

I then started to build my layout.

MIXED MEDIA: Bunny Canvas


Hello!

There seems to be more and more Chocolate coming into the house.
Hot Cross buns being requested for school lunch.
Kids are gethering ideas together for the school holidays. The amount of activities and adventures i am hearing, I am sure they think they have  12 months off from school! Tee hee.

Anyways, I am here to share with you a super cute little bunny canvas I created. I had this little idea that I wanted to created something with lots of flowers, and have some bunny ears somewhere.

Prodcuts used: Inklingz - sheer bliss, Tarnished Treasure, meet me sunset
                        Creameez - Lettuce get together, ride the tide 
                        Aqua Huez - Little boy blue, Rockin' Robin, Grey matter, Pretty Lily 

So I simply start by drawing, roughly the bunny ears and working out roughly where I would like some flowers to go. The thinking stage!! tee hee

Then I started by using lots of shimmerz. My process here was to simply have all the colours and tones that I wanted to use, open and ready to go and just start by simply layering my shimmerz products on. There was no Aqua huez first, then inklingz , then creameez. I just simply keeping add which ever tone was best.
Seriously, I am pretty happy with how it turned all the layers of the different products as create something very pretty visually. If only I could show you in real life.

Once I had the colour done for the bunny, I then add all my flowers. I wanted to try and adhere the flowers like it was  floral headband on the bunny. That was my thought process.

Once all the flowers were down I then add more shimmerz, little bit of blues and pinks to add a little whimsy. I then add more texture with modelling paste and fibers.

I think this turned out pretty cute.
Something to sit on the side board over Easter.

Wishing all my lovely readers a Happy Chocolate filled Easter!

MIXED MEDIA: Canvas using Aqua Huez



 Hello.

I would lie if I didnt say that Aqua Huez would be one of my favorite Shimmez products.
I want to share with you today, this little canvas I made for a dear friends birthday.
I used Aqua Huez along with Inklingz. The inklingz add a little sparkle and shimmer.

Products used: 


I prima my canvas first with gesso and then I first spritz the canvas with water. I then used a wet brush and just simply drop Aqua Heuz on the canvas and let the colours blend together.
I had this idea of trying to get the colours to form a butterfly that is flying.
I then used a drier fine brush to outline the butterfly.

If you look closely and a little imagination you will see the butterfly.

I then just embellished the canvas.

Cant wait to play more with Aqua Huez.
