Love This Messy Hair / Shimmerz Ed Team + a video!

Hey there, scrappy friends :)  I'm so excited to be sharing my first layout and process video as a Shimmerz Education Team Member!  I have switched over from the Design Team.  I used so many awesome Shimmerz products on this layout.  I was first inspired by a piece of patterned paper...that lovely pink and orange piece from the Amy Tan Finders Keepers collection from American Crafts.  I selected several products in variations of pinks and oranges and got started in this white and grey grid background paper.

I used an American Crafts flower stencil and some Spritz and Vibez.  I've seen Irit (from the Education Team) use this same stencil several times, and she inspired me to use it.  I simply sprayed the Spritz and Vibez through the stencil to get my background design started.  I added in lots of splatters as well.  Making those awesome flowers was so much fun!  I used the stencil, a paint brush, my finger and some Creameez & Inklingz.  (All of the colors that I used are listed below).

I love how the flowers turned out very messy and abstract.  I fussy cut them out, and when they dried, they naturally curled up at the ends.  Perfect for a flower!  I used a flair button in the center of each one.  These flowers are so pretty....they have a mix of sparkle and satin finish.

I added some stamping to this area of the layout and mixed and matched my title with some Thickers, alpha stickers and a hand-written word.  Check out the shine on the flowers!  So beautiful.

I just love how these colors look mixed in the black & white photo.  You really should try creating your own color scheme with all of your Shimmerz products and use a black and white picture....it's really freeing to not have to work around colors in a photo sometimes.

Here you can see the shape created with the stencil and the Spritz & Vibez.  I love the effect of simply spraying those products.  You get such a gorgeous effect when you mix them together.

Here is my process video...you can see here how each and every part of this layout was created. I hope you enjoy it and are able to get some ideas from it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful day!

Here are the products I used: 
Spritz--Caribbean Sunset, Cotton Candy
Vibez--Mango Tango, Sweet Heart, Before Dawn
Creameez--Piggy Pink, Great Fruit
Inklingz--Bahama Mama, Beets Me, She Packs a Punch
