Blending NEW Paste-eez With a Stencil

Happy Tuesday, friends!  Missy here, and I have a new layout to share.  I couldn't wait to use the NEW Paste-eez on a project!  Let me tell you, they are just amazing.  In case you don't know, they are our new texture paste with a flat finish.  The colors are beautiful, and they blend together so nicely.  That is what I did today on this page.

I used a fun stencil on white cardstock.  I used the Paste-eez in Raspberry Sherbet, Peach Fuzz, Hold the Mustard, Baby Boy Blue and Tree Hugger.  I used a palette knife to smudge the color over the stencil.  I began with the pink and then overlapped the orange and then the yellow.  I kept blending each color into the next until I liked the shades.  I went back over to the left with the green, and I just love how it turned out.  Once it dried, I used a few liquids with some plastic packaging to add some watercolor splotches.  I used Vibez Sweetheart, Jeni B Bleu & Glorious Day and Coloringz Pink Stilettos & Well Blue Me Down.  I did minimal embellishing because I thought this beautiful background was plenty.  I used a little bit of washi tape, some sequins and a few stickers.


Look at this gorgeous color!  I love how this turned out.  I'm a sucker for the rainbow look, so this is so pretty.  These pastes really did all the work here.  They dried pretty quickly with the heat gun.  You can let them dry naturally if you want; they don't take as long to dry as the Dazzlerz and Texturez.  The sequins I added are from SpeigelMom Scraps.


I decided to jazz up my white title.  I combined a Cameo die cut word with some white foam Thickers.  I used the Paste-eez to color both of these.  I used my finger to smudge the pastes on.  I also added a bit of spray to the die cut.  Here you can see some of the washi tape I used under the title.  I just chose a few rolls that matched the colors I had in the background.


I added some tissue paper and adhesive foam under my photo as well as some tangled thread.  I added a few clear MAMBI stickers here and there.  Look how cool the texture paste looks...you can really see the dimension.


I added my journaling here at the bottom and did some pink and orange machine stitching under it for added detail, color and texture.  That orange arrow is from Heidi Swapp, and that cute date washi is from Freckled Fawn.


Here's one more close-up of the beautiful Paste-eez.  You simply must try these...they are so beautiful and easy to use!


Here's my process video for this layout.  You can see how I used the Paste-eez and how easily they blend together.  I hope you enjoy!



Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

In the frame by Astrid

Hello lovely Shimmerz friends, it's Astrid here today sharing a little project with you.
I have a friend who is going through a hard time, so this is a little gift for her.
These are the products I used:
Past- Eez: Tree Hugger
AcriTonez: Peas be Mine
Coloringz: Don't Be Suede
Schimmeringz: Concrete
Vibez: Don't Rain on My Parade
All available in the Store of course

I started with the frame. On a bit of mount board I dabbed some of the Paste_Eez with my finger to created texture. While still wet I dropped in some Ancient Silver embossing powder and some little artstones and then dried with my heat gun.

Next I went to work with my chosen sprays until it looked like this:

Sadly the photo does not show how the bright turquoise paste turns into a beautiful patina with the help of the sprays..

For the inside panel I took a piece of scrapbook paper, covered it with clear gesso and when that had dried some clear crackle glaze. Once the cracks had appeared I scraped on a thin layer of the Acritonez paint just here and there with a little palette knife and then added some of the same spray lightly around the edges, dabbing any excess with some kitchen roll.






I matted the central panel on some white card for contrast, adhered it to the background and that was pretty much it.


Thanks for your visit and  if you order something from the store, just mention my name in your order and you will get a free gift, - how cool is that?

Loveliness Layout | Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here, Today I created a fun floral watercolor background for my layout.

 I began with an old Teresa Collins stamp set. I chose a simple flower and continuously stamped the image using Versa Mark Ink. I focused my stamping on two opposite corners of my white 12x12 sheet of paper. I then heat embossed using white embossing powder.
I colored the centers of the flowers using Aqua Huez Pot-O-Gold and used a watercolor brush to color the flowers using a mix of beautiful colors including Creameez in My Clementine, Great Fruit and Trippin in the Tropics. I used the original Shimmerz Paints in Magenta and Jilted Jade for the leaves and Inklingz in Precious Posey and Bahama Mama. No coloring inside the lines here, I just colored over the grouping of flowers.


I love the mix of the shimmery and non shimmery paints. I added a few splatters with some of the colors as I painted. Lastly, I added some shading with Aqua Huez Gray Matter where the mix of colors met the white cardstock.

I am using a photo of my adorable niece. I printed it in black and white. I added a few florals which I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo. I decided to leave them white. I love the simple texture they added. I embellished using lovely die cuts from the Cocoa Vanilla Love Always collection. My tittle is a silver glitter foam word from the Pinkfresh Studio Felicity Collection.
I love how this turned out! 
There is a video on my YouTube channel if you'd like to watch my process. 

Products used:
Aqua Huez: Pot-o-Gold, Gray Matter
Creameez: My Clementine, Great Fruit, Trippin in the Tropics
Inklingz: Precious Posey, Bahama Mama
Shimmerz: Magenta, Jilted Jade

Together, a layout using the new products by Karine

Hi,

January is such an exciting month over here, at Shimmerz Paints, with the new products released! I'm so happy to be working with those products.

My first share this month, I used both Paste-Eez and AcriTonez on my layout.

Together


To create my background, I used Peach Fuzz Paste-Eez through a checkers stencil. To add contrast, I used Lava Flow Paste-Eez through a typewriter text stencil. 


It was pretty as is, but I thought I would add some mists, just to unify everything. I used Peachy Keen Coloringz with a brush, making drops and little «pools» of colors.


I also added Truffle Spritz, using the same techniques as I did with the Coloringz. The soft grey color add just enough interest to the background.


Look at the gorgeous background I got! Isn't it pretty? 


I used some stamps to add even more texture.


I painted my 2Crafty Chipboards pieces (Squiggly Heart Cluster and Mini Word Set 2) with 3 Sheets to the Wind Acritonez.

"Let it snow" layout with Anna

Hello Shimmerz fans. I am so excited because today is my first post for Shimmerz along with the process video.
We are in the middle of the winter on the northern hemisphere. It's cold, dark and depressing. The only bright thing during the winter is snow. World looks much better under the snowy blanket. I had few fun pictures from one of our winter walks and I wanted to scrap it.


As You can see I didn't use any patterned paper on this page. I created my own background using variety of Shimmerz products.


I also used a foiled snowflakes that I made by my own using Minc and Silhouette Cameo. I got my Minc for Christmas and I just love the effects You can achieve.


I was trying to kill my "Snow and cocoa" kit leftovers but in the end I didn't want to cover too much of my background.


You can create Your own background in different colors and use it for many other, not winter related projects.
