Happy (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi there, crafty friends,

I'd like to share with you today a layout I made for Shimmerz Paints. As tomorrow is Valentine's day, I thought I would take a break from my usual bluish color combo and go for a more romantic color. As my last layout was pink, I thought I'd go with purple. So here is my layout.


After covering my entire background with clear gesso, I used Salt of the Earth Paste-Eez through a letter stencil. I'm loving this stencil, lately, and with Paste-Eez, I got crisp, sharp edges with no bleeding underneath the stencil I love it!

To add color to that textured background, I used a mix of Royal Purple Shimmerz, Power to the Purple Creameez, Beets Me Inklingz and Razzeldazzelberry Vibez. Look at this beautiful mix of purple I got! Can't get any better than this!

To embellish, I used one piece from the Leafy Shrub Set 1, from 2Crafty Chipboard. To color it, I used Have a Grape Day! Texturez, which I painted directly onto my chioboard. I love the shimmery finish I got, along with the great texture. 

In my embellishments clusters, I also added the Fine Leafy Bush chipboard, also from 2Crafty Chipboard, which I painted with 3 Sheets to the Wind AcriTonez. I cut it in smaller pieces and scattered those here and there. 

I embossed my Frame Lucy's Flourish with a purple embossing Powder. My title (Happy, from the Word Circles Set 1) was embossed in another purple shade of embossing powder.
