Hey, friends! I have a new layout to share for the Shimmerz Education Team using lots of Shimmerz Paints. I've had my hands on this beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Make a Wish collection for several weeks now, so I decided to pull it out. Right away I was drawn to this patterned paper. The cut apart card with the brush strokes just jumped out at me, and I immediately wanted to recreate that design on a larger scale. I pulled out some white cardstock, created the quote in similar fonts in my Silhouette software and cut it. I chose a rainbow array of Shimmerz Inklingz and Creameez to create with.
Here's what I came up with. I just love how it turned out! After cutting the quote, I left it on the cutting mat and painted all the brush strokes before peeling it off. I didn't use that much liquid, so it did not ruin my mat in any way. I used a large flat brush to paint and then used a rounder brush to splatter the paint. Once I peeled it off the mat, I began working on embellishing.
I love mixing Inklingz and Creameez together! For the yellow color, I began with Creameez Daffodil, but it was a tad too light. I added in some Shimmerz Sunny which made it a little richer in color. I machine stitched through each line with white thread and then added sequins in coordinating colors.
I fussy cut this gorgeous flower from another patterned paper and layered some vellum leaves under it. I also added some tangled thread and a bit of patterned paper behind my photo.
I added several embellishments around my photo including some stickers, vellum tags, die cuts and a bit more paint as well as some tangled thread. I also added some tissue paper behind my photos for a subtle border.
I just love a rainbow color scheme! I went through the vellum pieces and die cuts and chose flowers and other shapes that matched each color. I didn't want to make the layout too busy, so tried to be minimal with the embellishing.
I added some tangled thread under a few of the vellum flowers, and I love how that looks! I'm just in love with these colors. Shimmerz colors never disappoint!
I added my journaling under the photos and a few CVS stickers from the sticker sheet.
Here's one more look at the bottom area. This dark color is a new Creameez called Witches Blue, and it's gorgeous! The lighter blue is Creameez Ride the Tide with a splash of Vibez Jeni B Bleu mixed in.
Here's my process video showing how I created this. I also list every product and color I used on the layout. I hope you enjoy and gain some inspiration!
