You Bring the Sparkle Into My Life | Shimmerz Paints | January 2021 Color Kitz

Friday 29 January 2021


Hi everyone, here is a new layout I'm sharing for Shimmerz Paints today using their January 2021 Color Kitz. This kit is gorgeous and contains five colors of Shimmerz Paint: Snow Storm Vibez, I Love You Onyxly Inklingz, Good as Gold Inklingz and two new colors: Be Right Black Vibez and Star Bright Shimmerz.

I started off with a sheet of 12x12 marshmallow cardstock. I spritzed it with the Snow Storm Vibez to give it a shimmer all over, and set it aside to dry.

I cut the exclusive cut file 'you bring the Sparkle into my Life' out of white marshmallow cardstock. I also cut a backing piece for the word 'sparkle' from acetate - this is so I can create a 'fake' shaker pocket later. I then spent some time carefully painting the cut file with I love You Onyxly Inklingz. I gave it two coats.
I then painted a large area onto the background with Star Bright Shimmerz. This is a white gold paint that shimmers but also contains gold glitter - OMG this is the most amazing paint I have ever seen!! I painted a large area using a wide paintbrush. The aim was to create an area with this paint that the cut file could sit on. Once dry I also added Good as Gold Inklingz in three areas using the packaging technique and then sprayed the background in three places with Be Right Black Vibez.

When everything was dry I trimmed down my layout on two sides, added black pom pom trim and layered it onto a striped background paper. I then added my cut file to the layout with machine stitching. I cut lots of 1" squares of black patterned paper and positioned them randomly all over the layout! I added stars, acetate pieces and snowflakes to the layout as well as the three gorgeous Dotz that came with the Color Kitz. I also added an acrylic 'hello 2021' sub title by Bramble Fox.

Finally I moved onto my 'fake shaker' title. I applied Glossy Accents glue all over the word 'sparkle' then I set tiny silver star sequins (Spiegelmom Scraps) into the adhesive. I also sprinkled over a small amount of silver glitter.

Well! This is a bit of a different layout for me but I enjoyed making it and love how it turned out - sometimes it's fun to do something different!

Thanks so much for joining me today and don't forget that if you place an order via the Shimmerz Store, enter my name in the comments and you will receive a freebie!
Happy scrapping
