Fabulous You- With Shimmerz

Its my turn on the Shimmerz blog today and I have a very bright and happy layout just for you.

I used Lemon Drop and Gummy Berry Blue Dazzlerz to mask two different types of Finnabair doilies around the page.

Then using some Chikadee, Sea Foam and Caribbean Sunset sprays, I sprayed around the page and let it drip unevenly. Finally I took a black aquarelle pencil and outlined the drips I had made with the inks.

I stamped different types of images across the page using black archival ink. Then I matted the photo with recycled Prima packaging.

Finally I embellished with flowers, vines and other embellishments.

As always if you make a purchase at the Shimmerz Store and if you mention my name during checkout  in the "instructions to merchant" box. Stacey the owner of Shimmerz will send you a free product.

Catching Clouds- Prima Free Spirit Collection

Here is another layout for my feature at the Prima blog using the Free Spirit Collection.

This collection really spoke to me for many different reasons. I really loved the colors. The beautiful blues and greens in this collection were perfect as they are my some of my favourite colors to use on my projects.
I also loved the name of the collection because it truly represents the Free Spirit in all of us. 
My daughter is a free spirited soul and I've used this collection time and time again as it fit perfectly with her nature.

As soon as I saw the paper with the darling clouds from the Free Spirit Collection, I knew I would have to fussy cut them and hang them on a string. I had a picture of my daughter holding the string of a kite up high in the air.  I decided to use that photo and make it seem as if my daughter was holding onto some clouds and waiting for them to lift her up high in the sky.
I truly imagined her doing this as she thinks it would be amazing to jump from cloud to cloud. This childhood feeling is truly the way I envision the Free Spirit collection.

Inspirational OTP Butterfly- Prima's Free Spirit collection

Today I'm featuring The Free Spirit Collection on the Prima blog.
I created this project for CHA. Its a Mixed Media butterfly OTP using a wooden butterfly from the Dollar Store.

This collection really spoke to me for many different reasons. I really loved the colors. The beautiful blues and greens in this collection were perfect as they are my some of my favourite colors to use on my projects.

 To create the background I covered butterfly with papers from the Free Spirit collection and then masked over the whole surface using the new flower stencil from Prima and light molding paste. Then I sprayed ink all over the background using matching colors. Once dry, I stamped randomly all over the background using the music notes stamp from the Free Spirit collection.

Finally, I chose an inspirational quote and I framed it in one of the new Ingvild Bolme resin frames. Then I embellished with lots of beautiful Prima flowers and vines.
