Hi!!! I thought I would pop by with a couple of things today. So last weekend I managed to create something for a challenge. I don't ever seem to have the time to do challenges but this one I just had to do. This months sketch at Scrapfriends is just awesome!!! Wow, who doesn't love feathers atm?? Thanks for the inspiration Scrapfriends, I have always been a lover of your sketches, happy to say I have done one now :)
So here is my layout. I have used some Glitz, AC and Crate here. Plus some gorgeous 2 crafty chipboard. I added a little more to the sketch to eliminate the white space, you know me, I just can't do white space!!! I just adore this amazing gals work and have always wanted to make a big arrow like Miss Wally so thought this was a perfect layout to do it on!!!
"Piggy Back Ride"
I loved the stickers out of the Glitz collection Wild and Free. I even loved the subtle amount of pink in it. I added a little pink with my Shimmerz pots and think this layout is far from being girly even though I used pink. Just a little hint and it looks super cool on a boys layout!
I used some Feathers from 2 Crafty Chipboard. They are so so awesome, can't get enough! Plus some diecut feathers from Studio Calico. I also bought some white feathers from a $2 shop and dipped them in gold glitter!!!
I placed one of the arrow stickers from the Wild and Free sticker sheet on the wood clip.
More gold dipped feathers.......
I wrapped the feathers around a skewer stick with twine and then continued to wrap the twine the full length of the stick. Layered washi tape, stamping and masking. Plus loads of paper layers under my photo.
Lots of Shimmerz work underneath there.........
Secondly today, I have a new canvas to share using Shimmerz. Here are the products I used:
Texturez in Sandy Stone
Enamelz in Gold Digger
Spritz in Carribean Sunset and Mango Madness
Vibez in Egg Noggin and Before Dawn
Shimmerz in Coal, Candle Light and Island Salsa
I really love this saying, its just a perfect reminder to us all, to have more patience and to be kinder than necessary!
"Love is Patient, Love is Kind"
I have used lots of Prima and look there are those gold dipped feathers.....addicted much??? Plus I have used a 2Crafty chipboard birdcage :)
I used a brick pathway as my background mask with modelling paste.
All of these Shimmerz products together are just gorgeous and then add a touch of black to add some depth. You can even see the colour on the feathers.
So has anyone had a chance to get their hands on these new goodies from Shimmerz yet? I have only just received them myself and hoping to have my first play with them in the next few days!!!! They look fantastic and omg Blue Lagoon is just gorgeous! I think it will be my fave :)
Also if you mention my name in the comments section whilst at checkout you will receive one FREE bottle of the new DIMENSIONZ!!!!!! How cool is that, just by mentioning my name (or any Shimmerz Designer for that matter) :)

Okay, that's me for today, nearly time to collect the big boy from school.......so glad the school year is coming to an end, we are in need of a big break!!!! But it also means I am going to have 2 big boys at school next year.....eeekkkk!!!!
Have a great weekend xoxo
