MESSY CIRCLES - PART 1



Hi everyone!  It's Lesley Langdon here with you today.  I am so excited to bring you my FIRST video for the Shimmerz Education VLOG!

I hope you like messy, because that is exactly what you're getting.  Let loose with your colors, don't worry about splashes of color going every which way.

Pull out some white cardstock and play along with the video.  I dare you to have fun and embrace your messy side.

SYNOPSIS: MESSY CIRCLES PART 1
This quick paced video will demonstrate how to make your own MESSY CIRCLES scrapbook layout background using SHIMMERZ Paints products (Vibez, Spritz, Pearlz, Blingz, and Shimmerz). We'll explore using TWO different color palettes, using the same technique.  Tips covered in the first video include misting, painting, dripping, and how to make the most out of every drop of spritz.


SYNOPSIS: MESSY CIRCLES PART 2 (COMING THURSDAY)
The shorter of the two videos (available for viewing this Thursday) will include stamping, applying bees wax, and painting Shimmerz onto the layout in its final stages to help bring our MAIN color back into the mix.

"1,2,3 Inspire Create" Layout

  
Here is a close up of the circles we'll be creating today.


Below is a close-up of the ribbon that you'll see spritzed in the video.


AND HERE IS THE VIDEO!


And if you can't tell by watching the video, I have a new FAVORITE color and it's Jeni B Bleu VIBEZ!  It makes me happy.
