Adore (Shimmerz Paints)


I'm here today to share my first October layout for Shimmerz Paints. Here it is.

I started out with the Dramy meadows paper from Out of the blue. I covered it with a thin layer of clear gesso. Then, to add texture to my background, I used modeling paste through the Weaving stencil from Prima.

I was after a soft look for this layout about my partner, so I choose the following colors: Freshly Minted Inklingz, Get Glowing and Marshmallow Creameez and 4 Leaf Clover Spritz. As usual, I applied the colors with a brush, making sure each color was dry before I add another one.

I stamped my background to add even more texture. I used the Read to me (Finnabair - Prima) and the  Messy (Finnabair - Prima) stamps with grey ink, and the  and Coffee Stains (Prima) stamps with yellow ink.

I painted my chipboard (the Mod Squares from Blue Fern Studios) with white gesso.

I added Art Stones, mini Art Stones, some Sage mini Prills and some yellow grained grit, for an extra texture.

I used grey wire thread, a flair from Accent Scrapbooking and a Blue Fern Studios title which I painted with white gesso.

Most of my flowers are from Prima.

I made a video tutorial to show you my creative process.

And don't forget to mention my blog if you order some Shimmerz, you'll get some free paint!

I would like to enter the following challenge from Accent Scrapbooking. I was inspired mostly by the beautiful color combo, by the flowers on the left and the butterflies on the right.

Have a nice day!
