Stacey Young  >>>>>>>>>>   You are here with me
 
Back to the Shimmerz blog
 
 
So before you leave me here, I wanted to share with you some Shimmerz creations.  I created a mixed media canvas boat for my boys to put up in their room at our holiday house.  I used layers of material and paper mixed in with all of the gorgeous Shimmerz product.
 
I have used here:
Texturez in Patina and Gritty Graphite
Dazzlerz in Gummy Berry Blue
Vibez in Jeni B Bleu
Spritz in Sapphire
Shimmerz in Ultra Marine

 


Super fun and quick to make, it's all about getting messy :)
 
 









My next creation has just been shared on the Shimmerz blog.  Another beachy canvas piece.  I just can't get enough of them and the new Shimmerz products make it so easy!
 
 
This is what I used here:
 
Texturez in Tidy Whidy, Patina, Gritty Graphite and Sandy Stone
Dazzlerz in Gummy Berry Blue (yummo)
Spritz in Treasured Hyme
Shimmerz in Antique Lace
 
 
"Seaside"
 
 



I think I am addicted to the Dazzlerz Gummy Berry Blue :)
 




I used Tidy Whidy for the title, look at that texture, it's like writing in the sand :)
 
 


I used a mask to create the rock effect around each side of the photo and canvas.
I dabbed each shell with some Gesso first to whitewash and then I used the Texturez to give it colour, texture and a gritty look.
 
 
 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a squiz at some of my fun things..........

Next up is the gorgeous Mirands's BLOG !!! 

Thanks for playing along with us!! Have fun, and be inspired!
