LAYOUT: Shimmerz Aqua Huez


Have you seen the new Shimmerz products, the Aqua Huez?
Seriously, they are great. A watercolour that is vibrant and creamy. The easy way to explain them.

I have a page today to share with you using these as my background.

Aqua Huez: Little Lily, Hottie Pink and Gray matter

I started off by simply layering in pattern papers from Crate Paper hello Love collection.
I then smeared some Gesso to tone the patterns down.
I added some texture paste with a stencil.
Then I sprtiz a little water on the page and started adding my Aqua Huez. I just keep adding with a wet paint brush and some paint flicks.
I turned out so pretty and the colours just blended so well.
I even add some stamp images and painted them with the Aqua Huez.

The final page.

I hope you get some Aqua Huez real soon.
Dont forget to add my name at the checkout! :-)

Mixed Media: Canvas


If you read back a few posts you would see that I have been creating a few canvas for my lounge room.
I initially started out with three little canvas together but have now started adding to it.
They look so pretty on the wall I couldn't help but add to it.
So here is another one, which is a little bigger and fits very nicely together.
Even my hubby commented!! sooooo... they must look good!! tee hee

I have used lots of shimmerz again mostly colouringz. I love how vibrant these are.

Products used:  Colouringz: well blue me down, peachy keen, oh say can u see
                          Vibez: Jeni B Bleu
                          Sprtiz; Caribbean sunset

I meant to take step by step photos for this, but on the day I created it was dark and rainy day and lightening was not being my friend. So please forgive me.

But I simply started out by layering paper on the background, to get some pattern and texture. I then simply add some gesso, very lightly so that I could see some of the pattern paper. I then just added some shimmez. I applied these either by direct spraying, using packaging technique, a paint brush in the shimmerz bottle and nozzle splatters.

Once that was done, I just added all my embellishments.

Lots of shimmery fun.

Happy shimmery creating friends!

Tags: Happy day

Its been wonderful the last few weeks to simply be able to create a few little bits and pieces.
Not much went prior to the 6 weeks of school holidays, but I am slowly finding my creativity groovy again and establishing my routine.

Wanted to share just a few tags I create the other week. If you follow me on Instagram (link in the side bar) you would have seen most of these.
