Days Like These / Shimmerz

Hey there, scrappy friends :)  Today, I'm sharing a layout I created for Shimmerz using several delicious mixed media products.  It began as an experiment and turned out to be something I am very happy with :) (Go HERE to visit the Shimmerz Paint Store, and remember to mention my name when you check out and you can receive some free product!)

I began with white cardstock.  I added clear gesso to it first and then pulled out a few Dazzlerz in bright colors.  I used a Dylusions geometric stencil and a palette knife to spread multiple colors onto the cardstock.  I loved the mosaic look once I was finished.  I added some bright papers behind my photo.  I decided to use my Cameo to cut a really large title.  I decided to leave it white so it wouldn't compete with the Dazzlerz design.  The Dazzlerz go on so smooth and creamy...they were made for stencils!  I used my finger to smudge some Gummy Berry Blue onto the "days" part of my title.  Easy and fun :)

Here's a close up of the Dazzlerz.  They dry true to the color in the container, and they're very shiny.  If you're a bling and sparkle lover, these are for you!  I did use some plastic packaging and some Coloringz to add a bit more color.  This pink color is Pink Stiletto.

These paper layers are from Bo Bunny's Lemonade Stand collection as well some generic white tissue paper from my stash.  It makes great layering material.

I love the white-on-white look...very subtle and it doesn't get lost in the mix of all the other "stuff" going on throughout the page.  I added in some wood veneer hearts, which I colored with Coloringz and Vibez.  I also added lots of splatter drips, too.  Those yellow lines behind the title are Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop.  I added in some Coloringz in No Yoking on top of it.

One last close up the beautiful Coloringz and Vibez pretty!  By the way, these liquids color wood veneer beautifully.

I hope this inspires you in some way to get creative with these products!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Here is a video of my process creating this layout.  Enjoy!

  1. Great process video Missy! Keep doing what you do ! The bright colors of Dazzlers, Coloringz and Vibez were a perfect base for the Bo Bunny papers :)

  2. The mosaic look is amazing Missy! All of the color is so pretty! And I love the White title layered over the White cardstock too!!

  3. Seriously, love listening to you. I might have mentioned this once or twice, or not, don't want to sound stalkerish. Another awesome process video. I have that stencil, too, and it was one of my first ones. Love the bright colors.
