Shimmerz catchup

Hi lovely readers, I am in desperate need of catching up on my Shimmerz projects here!!!
So here is one for today :)
These are the Shimmerz products I used:
Dazzlerz in Gummy Berry Blue and Sour Apple (I actually mixed these two colours together to make a turquoise colour)
Texturez in Sugar Spun and Gritty Graphite
Spritz in Licorice, Sapphire and Seafoam
Pearlz in Espresso
"You Are Loved"


I used some Pebbles papers here and the background paper was Teresa Collins Memorabilia.

A little Prima, Webster's and BG.

Thought I would also share a quick little run down on how I created it :)

I started on my background by using a Chevron stencil and then with a pencil I stencilled out the bow shape towards the bottom of the page.  I then used the Dazzlerz to colour it in.  I also used the black and white to add some depth and shadows to it.  Lots of paint flickers too.

I then added my first lot of patterned paper along with some washi tape.  I cut out the triangles from the paper and also had them sit in place (not yet adhered).

Next came the photo mat.  Several different types of patterned papers, all at different sizes and all of them distressed.  I applied the photo with foam tape and applied some string and twine around it.
I then adhered the ribbon bow, flowers and other embellishments.  The triangles I adhered with foam tape.

Stamping was applied and coloured in along with some phrases and word tabs.  I added a few enamel dots and finished off with some more Shimmerz paint flickers.

Okay, thanks for dropping by.  I appreciate your kind words!
Bye for now xo
