Hello Sunshine | Shimmerz Paints | March 2021 Color Kitz

Friday 19 March 2021


Hi everyone, today I have a new layout and video to share for Shimmerz Paints. I'm using the March 2021 Color Kitz which includes five colours of Shimmerz Paint: Pink Lemonade Vibez which is a brand new colour and fast becoming my new favourite, Goldie Lox Shimmeringz, French Twist Inklingz, Blue My Mind Inklingz and Gosh Garnet Inklingz. All the colours in this month's Color Kitz have a gold undertone and therefore they are BEAUTIFUL!

I'm also using the exclusive cut file that comes with the March Color Kitz: Hello Sunshine. I have back filled the letters with a woodgrain patterned paper.

I began with a sheet of Marshmallow card. I cut a large piece of Pinkfresh Studio Some Days paper and stuck that down the middle of the background. I painted the paper with clear gesso. I then began to apply the colours from the Color Kitz. Firstly I spritzed Goldie Lox Shimmeringz all over the page. This is a subtle spray but gives everything it lands on a gold sparkle - so yummy! I then set about applying Pink Lemonade, Gosh Garnet and French Twist in two areas: one on the middle left of the layout and one top right. The larger one is for where my photo will sit and the smaller one top right will be for an embellishment cluster. I added those three colours with the packaging technique and I also sprayed Pink Lemonade directly onto the layout. I also added splatters of those colours.

While the background was drying I then painted the word 'hello' of the cut file. I used Blue My Mind for this. I made due there was only a little water applied to this Inklingz because I wanted a really rich paint and it painted onto my word beautifully.

I then began to assemble my layout. I added my photo and lots of ephemera clusters from Pinkfresh Studio Some Days. I used flowers and lemons. I added chipboard circle frames behind my photo too. I added three Dotz from the March Color Kitz: one is light pink and says 'free' one is coral pink and says 'dream' and the final one is blue and gold with cute kisses on. I added these to my layout amongst the embellishments.

I then added some of the gold tinsel that came in the March Color Kitz. I added areas of went adhesive around the chipboard frames and around the Dotz in the top right corner of the layout and then sprinkled the tinsel on. It then stuck to the adhesive and I shook away the excess. The result is this beautiful bright gold glittery effect that I absolutely love!

I finished off my layout by adding Perspextives by Bramblefox: Cute Camera and hearts, and two different Spiegelmom Scraps sequins. I also added the cut file title raised on foam pads for extra depth and dimension and handwrote in my journaling.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed this layout and video. Don't forget that if you place an order via the Shimmerz Store, enter my name in the comments to receive a freebie.
