Shimmerz and other compounds


Happy Monday! Rita Barakat with my first video for Shimmerz and I am so excited to share some fun techniques with you. Did you know you could can use Shimmerz with modeling paste? I love creating texture and of course adding a little Shimmerz! This is what we are making today...


Here are the supplies you will need:
Shimmerz Vibez, Sea Monkey, Blue Jeans, Grape Escape
Shimmerz Pearlz, Blue By U
Shimmerz Paint, Lilac 
Molding Paste,
Gesso,
Cardboard,
Various Embellishments,
One picture. 


                            
* Please wait until everything is completely dry before adhereing anything.
For the video I did things very quickly but it's much better to wait until it dries!
TFL!

Wow, this is just stunning Rita. You made it look so easy, was wondering how the gesso would go on normal cardstock and then following the instructions. I have all those shimmerz colours too. You did awesome girl, I have not seen those crafters workshop products or modelling paste but am going to look out for them, so shabby and divine. You did excellent.....Melxx
