You are my Happiness- Shimmerz Layout

I'm so happy to say that its my turn again on the Shimmerz blog and I created this multi-texture layout.

To create the background I used torn pages from a book which I pasted on the card stock using matte gel medium. Once dry, I masked a script CW stencil using light molding paste. Then came the spraying. I used Lime in da Coconut and Sea Foam Shimmerz sprays together on the page. I let them mix and drip sideways. When the two colors combined, they created a very beautiful teal-like color on the page.

I used black archival in to stamp different images on the page.

I used Before dawn Shimmerz spray to create little circles on the page. They were created using the lid of the bottle.

I also used the Before Dawn spray to ink the "Happiness" title. I simply sprayed it on the wood and it gave it an even coat without having to prime it.
