Announcing the New Education Team

I would like to thank everyone who applied for the Shimmerz Education Team. It was an honor to witness all of your amazing creativity in person. Thank you for sharing yourselves with us.

I know that many artists made a video for the very first time for this application. I hope that you will continue in your video-making as each one was wonderful. It was a very difficult decision to chose only a few out of the many.

Without further ado...

I would like to announce the Shimmerz Education Team.

Education Team Coordinator

Making a Layered Flower

Hi everyone, it is Monday and video time.  Today, I am going to show you how to make this little beauty of a flower painted with Shimmerz Choc-o-lot.  The patterned papers used are from Graphic 45, Steampunk Debutante collection.  If you attended Archiver's Scrapfest event, you will recognize this flower.  I have changed it up just a little bit by adding sparkles and shimmer to it by painting it with Shimmerz Choc-o-lot!!  You will want to make this flower for sure! Enjoy!

Open Up your Vibez

Hi, it's Lucy here with another idea for using your Shimmerz Vibez or Spritz - Open them up and paint with them - you can achieve some wonderful washes and watercolor looks.

Here's how I created this look:

A close up of Before Dawn Vibez used as a wash with some splatter in Toadlee Pearlz.

I love the vintage look it added to my paper!

Thanks for watching and see you soon!

Shimmerz Pearlz Scraping Technique

Join me today as I demonstrate an easy technique for sprucing up a plain piece of white cardstock using Shimmerz, Pearlz, and Vibez and an old credit card. Don't worry, it won't affect your credit score! (giggle...)

Isn't that Shimmer gorgeous?

On this layout, I used Shimmerz Pearlz in Blue By U and Carrot Top as well as Shimmerz Spritz in Cotton Candy. In my demo, I used Blue By U Pearlz, Peas B Mine Pearlz, Sunny Shimmerz and Fiery Fiesta Vibez.

You can always purchase Shimmerz products at the Shimmerz shop!

Happy Shimmering!
