Just wanting to share you all and a page that I created using more Shimmerz Coloringz. There called Coloringz for a reason, super vibrant!
Once again I started with a gesso background and then started spritzing my coloringz on. This time instead of dabbing with paper towel to remove excess, I used plastic. It gives it a different look and adds a little more texture.
When trying to add texture and interest to a background, it doesnt need to be add or a slow process. This took no more than 10 minutes.
I then just add some splaters.
to highlight my colour background I machine stitched a border around the shimmerz area and absolute loved it.
Then I started bulidng my page.
I hope this inspires you even go back to basics and remember why you create!
I have been having a play with some Shimmerz Coloringz. These little shimmery bottles are the best for procrastination when it comes to housework! tee hee.
Honestly, I loved having fun blending the colours and using the noozle to doodle with. How needs a pencil! tee hee.
I started off with a gesso background again. Then spritz some water onto the background, which allows the colours to blend a little easier. (Remember to choose colours that blend nicely and dont give a 'muddy' colour). I then started spritzing on pink stilettoes and Mandrin Mai Tai.
In between each spray I dabbed excess with a paper towel. I just keep spraying, varing the distance I sprayed the bottle from too, till I got how I liked it.
I then used the nozzle to doodle. Didn't matter how uneven and rough the circles were, I just doodled.
Lastly I used Vibez, to add some splatters.
Once it was all I dried I did a little stamping and used a characol pencil to highlight some of circles.
Then I started to layer and build my page.
Go on, have a go blending a few colours and see where it takes you. ;-)
Whats the deal with weekends folks? One minute its Friday night and then suddenly its Sunday evening. Well, maybe next weekend I will relax in Pj's and play monolopy.
The highlight of last week.
I finished #the100dayproject.
I did, I really did.
Being a mother brings alot of responsibility. Happy times and tears.
I know there are children out there who dont have a blessed relationship with there mother or father. There closer to their peers than there parents. I am so grateful that the children, although there young still, can be open with me and I hope that will always be the case. They will grow and face challenges. As irriating as I may be to the children, as stern as I can be and I am sure I get on their nevers. A lot. I know however, when push comes to shove we have each others back.
There is nothing I would not do for my children.
Like devoting time each and everyday for 100 days straight to complete the children album.
What memories they hold.
Now to keep the kids albums upto date! *waves a magic wand*
I am stopping by with a layout I put together for Shimmerz, using my favorite shimmerz, Aqua Huez.
Products used: Aqua Huez Rockin Robin, Hottie pink, crazy daisy, Blue me away and Green with envy
I wanted to document the bond with my daughter already. Most of the time its convientent for me to be behind the camera, instead of in front. But I am becoming more aware and more confident with self timer.
Luckily, I have a benefit and that is that Missy Moo does not mind one bit a thousand and one photos just to get one good one.
I wanted my page to be bright, fun and cheery. Just like her.
First up I add gesso and some masking tape for some texture and a surface to use my Aqua Huez on. I then used a stencil and very wet brush and layed my Aqua Huez on. I left the stencil there to dry for a very l o n g time. It allowed the Aqua Huez to seep underneath and leave this amazing pattern.
