Joy / Shimmerz Education Team

Hey, friends!  Today I have a layout to share for the Shimmerz Education Team using a stencil and lots of fun Shimmerz Paints.  I love using Shimmerz to create my own embellishments and big statement pieces for my pages.  I used a leaf stencil for this that I found at Michael's.  I combined some Dazzlerz and Texturez to create some dimensional and textured leaves.  I used a palette knife to scrap the texture paste over the stencil.  I combined Dazzlerz Pucker Up Pink, Lemon Drop & Spun Sugar with Texturez Crushed Coral and Mari-Gold Digger.  I also sprayed a bit of Coloringz Pretty in Pink and Vibez Sweetheart.  After everything dried, I fussy cut the leaves out...and these beautiful leaves were brought to life.

They turned out so pretty!  They're shimmery and shiny with lots of fun texture.  I adhered them to the background with a bit of glue and then machine stitched with gold thread down the centers.  I scattered some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins all around the page as well.

Look at this bumpy texture!  I love it!  I pulled out some papers and embellishments from the Illustrated Faith Gratitude Documented collection to add a bit more.  I used some papers for layers behind the photo and a few die cuts.

I just love all this dimension going on here.  The leaves really look life like with all the texture and pretty color.  For my background, I decided to add some blue shades.  I used some plastic packaging with Vibez Jeni B Bleu & Snow Way Man and Coloringz Mama Sings the Blues.  I splattered and added lots of fun dots.  I also added in some beautiful gold using Inklingz Miner Miner 49er & Old Yeller.  I even used a gold pen to write my journaling.

I hadn't even planned on using the Illustrated Faith collection, but I noticed it matched the leaves.  It was the perfect addition, and I think it ties everything together.

Creating these leaves was really easy.  If you can scrape paint over a stencil, then you can totally do this with any shape!  And any color scheme you want.

Here's one more close-up just because :)

I hope this gives you some fun ideas to try with your Shimmerz Paints.  You could also try with with some of the ink sprays.  So many possibilities!
