Welcome to the Shimmerz Paints "We're Thankful" Blog Hop!!

 

 
Welcome, welcome, to the Shimmerz Paints "We're Thankful" Blog Hop!


The holidays are quickly approaching, and we will soon be entering into the gift giving season. Before black friday appears though, we want to remember all the things that we are thankful for this year. We've decided to put on a blog hop, telling you things that we are thankful for and along the way we will share with you our own personal favorite Shimmerz Products, and give you the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes!

Have you seen our new collection? It's made up of of 4 new vibez colors, shimmering with golden luster! They will work amazingly with our holiday collection that we are re-releasing for the holidays! If you didn't get the opportunity to snag these last year, now is your chance!

 
 
To play along with us, visit the following links, leave a comment everywhere you go, and finally, once you end up on the Shimmerz blog page, tell us something that you are thankful for and what Shimmerz Paint product you wish you had. Make sure to leave a comment everywhere though, because there are a couple of prizes hidden within some of the Ed team, and DT blog posts! (To be eligible to win these, you must have left a comment on their blog hop post.)

 
So excited to be involved in the Shimmerz blog hop!!  I truly love the Shimmerz product, so easy to use, load of shimmer and the most gorgeous colours :):)  It is actually really hard for me to pick a favourite product so here I will name a few: 
 
Coloringz in Heidi Ho Blue......this colour was released in the Spring Collection in honour of Shimmerz dt talent Heidi Kelley.  It's a gorgeous rich turquoise blue...love it!!!!
Spritz in Sapphire and Carribean Sunset
Enamelz in Sparkliscious
Shimmerz in Tickle Me Turquoise and Antique Lace

I am sure you recognize these colours in my creations :)
 
I would also like to share today a new project which I recently put up on the Shimmerz blog.  I created a series of Christmas tags for my gifts this year.  Using Shimmerz was super easy and the results I just love!!!
 
 

This is how they started out......I used a couple of different masks and applied with texture paste.  I then sprayed my Shimmerz in some Christmas colours.
 


Then I embellished my tags and finished off by applying Enamelz in Gold Digger :)
 
 





I would also love to share a few of my favourite projects using Shimmerz:
 
 







 

 
These are Shimmerz projects that have appeared on the Shimmerz blog but I actually use Shimmerz on EVERY project I create.......I can't recommend it enough :)  I am extremely thankful to work with such wonderful products and amazing girls on this team!
 
Here are the links, in case you get lost somewhere around the way. You have until November 25 to enter, and we will notify all the winners sometime shortly after!!
