Shimmerz and Petaloo Flower Frame

Isn't Spring wonderful? All the flowers in the garden make my heart sing. It is also blooming here at Shimmerz! I've really enjoyed playing around with my Shimmerz and Petaloo flowers. In my video, I show you how to decorate a metal frame that I purchased at Target using white Petaloo flowers and Shimmerz Spritz and Pearlz.

The technique is very simple, but the results are stunning.

You can see the detail in the following close-up shots.

In the video, I used the following Shimmerz products that you can purchase here.

Happy Shimmering!

Shimmer and Petaloo Lace

Hi everyone! It's Lucy, here to kick off an exciting week for Shimmerz and Petaloo!! We have teamed up to show you what a gorgeous combination the Color Me Crazy Petaloo flowers are when teamed up with Shimmerz!!

I've put together a video tutorial showing how to make a lacy effect that you can use on many projects! Hope you enjoy!

And some close-ups of my project - I used Shimmerz in Flashee Fushia, Magenta and Hottie Pink for my background and added a sublte shimmer to the Petaloo flowers with Tuscan Sun Spritz.


We will have many more gorgeous projects to share with you this week from the Design Team and Jeni and Beth both have videos to share later in the week, so stay tuned! See you soon,

Let it Drip with Shimmerz Vibez

I've been having so much fun with my new Shimmerz Vibez! I love the intensity of color and the amazing shimmer. However, the thing that I like most is that many of the Vibez sprays are two toned. For example, Red-y-or-Not is a beautiful red, but when I angle my paper, I can see a beautiful silver sheen. So cool! Experiment with different colors and you too will fall in love with the gorgeous two-tone shimmer!

Here are a few pictures that kind-of show that two-tone effect with Jeni B Bleu and Sunset Strip Vibez. It's tough to capture shimmer on camera. (I think that you need to see it in person to really appreciate it.)

In my video, I demonstrate an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy technique using Shimmerz Vibez. This technique is so simple (and fun!) that your 6-year-old could do it with you. And since Shimmerz is an easy clean-up and non-toxic, you won't mind sharing a little with your sweetie. (Maybe...)

Have fun!

In this video, I used the following Vibez colors: Jeni B Bleu, Sunset Strip and Hermit the Frog. You can purchase Shimmerz products in the Shimmerz store.

Happy Shimmering!
