Happiness (Shimmerz Paints)


I'm sharing today a layout I made for Shimmerz Paints. I wanted a soft feel for this sweet picture of my kids.

After using clear gesso and modeling paste, I used mainly two colors to build my background: Keep Palm Coloringz and Olive Branch Spritz. I used my paintbrush to make drops. I used water to help the colors blend in some places.

Next, I used my Don't Be Suede Coloringz to add a bit of contrast. Once again, I used my paintbrush to make drops.

I used the beautiful Birdsong Melody paper from the Sanctuary collection (Blue Fern Studios). And did you know Blue Fern Studios now make flowers? On the picture above, you can see one of the Courtship Blooms (the brown flower, on the bottom left).
