An experiment, project for Shimmerz

Hi all and thanks for coming by!
Today I am sharing a project on the Shimmerz blog, so just a sneak peek here I'm afraid to say....
I've called it an experiment, as it's the first time I used Shimmerz product on black gesso. If you want to see more, - just click HERE

Thanks for dropping by and of course I would love it if you took a look.
Have a great creative week,

Love what I see here, Astrid! Black gesso is so receptive to shiny things, and what a fabulous idea to use the Shimmerz products on it! Off to go see exactly what you did, as this sneak peek tantalizes for knowing more about this make! xxx Lynn

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
