Love- Inspiration for Shimmerz

For my second post this month at Shimmerz I created a colorful textured background and used a picture of my family.

To create the background I first masked a circular pattern using some light molding paste. Then I sprayed it with both Chikadee and Lime in the Coconut Shimmerz sprays.

Then using another small circular stencil, I masked the mini circles with two different colored Dazzlers: Sour Apple and Lemon Drop.

I used Before Dawn to sprinkle some dots on the background. I also used it to color the triangular banner which was then sprayed with Chikadee.

I also stamped different images on the page to help tie in the layout together. The Love title is a chipboard from 2 Crafty
