Kids Summer Project - Petaloo

Hello Petaloo Fans. Shona here today, and I am continuing with this months Kids Summer Projects. These cards are super quick and easy for kids to help with!
 

 
I created my cards on some watercolor paper, as I was adding lots of colourful mists! Lay a piece of leaf chipboard on the cards and I used two bright colourful Shimmerz mists. The chipboard acts as a stencil and leaves a nice white stencil behind the mists.
 

 
Next up I added some stamping, twine and gorgeous Petaloo blooms to finish it all off.
 

 
One more close-ups and I have a full list of the gorgeous DIY and Darjeelings used at the bottom.  
 

 
That is it for today. This is a fun project to make with kids! Make sure to check out our Facebook, there is always something fun and creative there! Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Brahms - Vintage Wall Art

Hello Shimmerz fans! Today I have some wall art that I created with plywood and Vintage Piano Music…I call it Brahms. My dad was a pianist and I have his old music..and no no no I would never tear up his music!!..... but I am lucky to have two vintage music books that are identical. One is on my piano and the other I create treasures with.  

 
After I applied the music I did some masking with Tidy Widy Texturez.
 
My background colors consist of, Chocolate Brown Coloringz, Hot Fudge Vibez, Treasured Hymn and Truffle Spritz. I love this earthy Vintage color mix.
 
To finish it all off I added some splatters of Giddy About Green and Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz.
 
One more closeup.
 
On your next order mention my name in the comments at check out and Stacey will send you something extra! Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Take care and happy scrapping!

Summer Fun Project - Petaloo

Hello Petaloo Fans. Well Summer is here finally and it is camping season. This year I have the joy of having my daughter and grandsons to camp with…and my posts this month are fun things that maybe you can do with the kids. This piece is made with some sticks or driftwood and prettied up with Petaloo!  


 
Step 1: I got two sticks or small driftwood pieces and wrapped twine around them to secure them together.
 


 
Step 2: Apply some gesso with your finger to give the driftwood a shabby look.
 


 
Step 3: I glued on some gauze and sprayed it all with a soft brown Shimmerz mist.
 

 

Step 4: Time to pretty this piece of wood up with some yummy Petaloo products!
 


 
 Step 5: I tucked in a few seashells and added some Sand Beads and Mica chips to finish it all off.
 


 
Here is the finished project and some close ups.
 


 
I just adore this mix of a Burlap Pick, Mixed Textured Blossoms and Mini Darjeelings.
 

 

 
That is it for today. This is a fun project to make with kids! Make sure to check out our Facebook, there is always something fun and creative there! Take care and Happy Scrapping!

ART - Shimmerz Canvas

Hello Shimmerz fans! Today I have a fun mixed media canvas to share. I just love the vibrant Shimmerz colors on it!
 

 
 

The title chipboard piece is finished with a coat of Licorice Stick Dazzlerz. Dazzlerz is like a texture paste that is perfect to add dimention and perfect for masking.
 

 

My background was created with three Coloringz. Well Blue Me Down, Manderin Mai Tai, and Lime in Da Coconut. By added a mist of water between layers you can blend your colors.
 

 

One last close up with some added splashes of Onyxly and Blue Lagoon Inklingz.
 
On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name in the notes at checkout, and Stacey will add a free sample in your order! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration. Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Classic and Timeless - Flying Unicorn July Kit


Hi everyone! I am back with another share from the gorgeous Flying Unicorn July Kit. This is a very special photo of my mom…she was so wonderful and so much fun all of the time! I thought the 49 Market Paper Collection was perfect to display this photo.
 

I did a few layers of papers behind the photo and added some Shimmerz mists to bring out the masked areas.
 

I just love the resins and buttons that were added in this kit. I added bit of lace to finish it off and give it a vintage look.
 

Well thats it for today! Take care and happy scrapping J
