Precious Sunshine / Shimmerz

Hey there, and Happy Monday!  I don't know what it is about January, but it has me in the mood to scrap bright Summer photos!  My moods for scrapping sometimes don't coincide with the actual season...I go with whatever I feel like scrapping at the moment.  My latest layout for Shimmerz is very bright and sunshiney! This was featured on the Shimmerz blog last Wednesday.  Click HERE to see about all of the products I mention here in the description of my layout.

I used papers from Webster's Pages and Echo Park to create this.  I used the gorgeous Tuscan Sun Spritz and a Crafter's Workshop stencil to create the sun rays in the background.  I used another stencil with the Patina Texturez to create those circles on either side of my photos.  It really gives amazing texture!  Such perfect name for it :)  Those chipboard frames are from Crate Paper, and I gessoed them before making them a gorgeous golden color, using Shimmerz (Sunny) and Inklinz (Miner Miner 49er).

These frames really shine...they have such a pretty sheen to them.  I used Shimmerz Tickle Me Turquoise to create the aqua watercolor here.

What I love about Shimmerz products is how may different shades you can get by mixing them and layering them together.  Once the Patina was dry, I added the Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz and Well Blue Me Down Coloringz...and they both can easily be used like watercolor.  And you can control the lightness and darkness by how much you water them down.  That beautiful pink tone is a  mix of the Razzle Dazzle Berry Vibez and Pretty in Pink Coloringz.

One more close up of the gorgeous Patina's such a fun product to use through a stencil!

I hope this gives you some inspiration today to go bold and bright even though it's cold outside!  Have fun with it :)
