Hello all and welcome! Things are getting back to normal after my long absence, and today I have some projects as well as some news to share.
While I was away in Australia, I was contacted by the owner of Shimmerz Paints
to ask if I wanted to be part of her design team..... Well, I nearly fell of my chair, - little old me on a team like that. It took me about 5 seconds to decide lol.
So today I am sharing some fun little experiments with their amazing paints and sprays, - mixed media bliss for sure.
Just to be clear, these little cards are not yet DT pieces, I was just having a play to get to know the products, but I thought I would share them with you anyway. My first proper DT piece will be due only in about 10 days time, and of course then I'll share a proper step by step over on their blog
Meanwhile, here are some close ups of my play time :o)
If you don't know Shimmerz, - they do paints, sprays, coloured texture media, etc etc, both with mica and without. Both the background and the flower were coloured with a mix of their products.
Oh and they blend in with all my favourite Distress inks to perfection too!
I certainly loved creating these, the saying is from the Tim Holtz small talk collection stickers.
Love how the sprays seep into the crackled background.
The butterfly is a Tim Holtz die cut from the Butterfly Duo.
Well, there you have it, just a little taster here, but if you do decide to check out the paints and make a purchase, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey (the owner) will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Check out our Facebook page
for more inspiration too, there is masses of inspiration there, give-aways and links to some super videos!
Thanks for visiting today and happy creating!
I am going to enter these into the following challenges:
