You Shine so Bright- GD for Shimmerz Part 2

This is my second post for my GD this month. I created a background using lots of Shimmerz Products

I used a porous sponge to dab color onto my white card stock. I sprayed on my mat first and then dabbed it randomly on the page. You can see that it looks like it was splattered on, but that is just the texture of the sponge.

I also used some beautiful Prima flowers and the an Ingvild Bolme Light bulb which is a fave.

For the dabbed background I used:
Spritz: Rock a Fella, 4 Leaf Clover and Olive Branch
Vibez: Blue jeans, Sea Foam and Egg Nogging
Pearlz: Green with envy

After the background was dry I masked a sun like pattern using light molding paste. 
Then I painted it with Sunny Side Up Pearlz.

Well, I hope I inspired you to get your Shimmerz out of the box and if you haven't any then just go to the Shimmerz Shop and get yourself some. You'll love them and If you mention me during checkout at the "Instructions to Merchant" box, you can earn yourself a free Shimmerz product. It can't get better than that.!!

Materials used:
Spritz: Rock a Fella, 4 Leaf Clover and Olive Branch
Vibez: Blue jeans, Sea Foam and Egg Nogging
Pearlz: Green with envy, Sunny side up

Other products
Papers: White Card stock, Simple stories, Les Papiers de Pandore
Flowers: Prima
Butterflies, crystals and bulb: Prima
