Enamelz Make Even the Prettiest More Beautiful!

I love flowers. I love real flowers, prints of flowers, fake flowers, flowers in my hair, flowers on my toenails... well, you get the point. I love flowers. So, as I am sitting in my scrap studio, watching summer give way to fall, and the last of my little blossoms starting to fade - I decided to make use of their beauty in a project or two.

Today we are going to print with flowers and then actually add the blossoms themselves to the project, enhance the colors using lots of Coloringzs, and then we are going to make them breathtaking with the addition of Enamelz. Just when you think the beauty of flowers can't get more fantastic... wait until you see how the Enamelz makes them shine.
Here is a peeky...

Mahlin Wiggur!!! 

If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing some of this girl's talented works, you are in for a treat. We are thrilled that she has accepted the role as our newest Educator! In her own words, here is a bit more about our girl Mahlin from Sweden...

"Mahlin, this is me, the girl who, by day is an ordinary 30 yr. old mother to Vilmer 3 yrs, working as a special eds teacher for kids with Asperger and Autism... but then.. at night.. I turn into that scrappy girl, who plays with color until floors, walls and Ceiling all have some splashes of color. Happy colors. I work with playfulness, I love colors, and texture. I will follow the creativeprocess where it takes me. No right or wrong. I let my feeling do the talking when creating and I always choose my photo last.  I am so proud to be welcomed into the Shimmerz Ed family since Shimmerz has been my mist and paint of choice for so long and my absolute fave is Shimmerz coloringz.. "

Here is a recent project that Mahlin has created using Shimmerz... I am in love!!

AND, here is a little treat for you... a video that she has made recently, using Shimmerz paints!

I think we are all in for some major eye candy, don't you?!!!!! I cannot wait to see more. Welcome, welcome, to the Shimmerz family, Mahlin!

Distress Embossing

Hi everyone! It's Irene here. Today, I would like to share with you all a video tutorial on "distress embossing". I've used this technique on some areas of a mini album.
Besides the "distress embossing" technique in the video tutorial, I've also used tons of Shimmerz paints to color the flowers on this mini album.

Coloringz: Tropical Tanline, Ivy League
Shimmeringz: Bronze Bombshell
Pearlz: Espress-O
Enamelz: Molten Metal, Gold Digger, Fake Bake

For the flowers:
Spritz: Terra Cotta
Coloringz: My Bleeding Heart
Blingz: Spiced Cider

Here's today's video tutorial! There will be more close-ups of this mini album in the video! Happy watching!

Faux sea glass effect

Hi there

Here's a quick video on how to create a faux sea glass effect using Shimmerz - it's easy to do and looks fabulous on chipboard lettering and tags.

This is also my last post with Shimmerz, I've really enjoyed being on the Educator Team but my family is calling loudly. Thanks to everyone for their support and lovely comments and keep up the great work with Shimmerz! :)

Mon Shari, Eucalyptus and Sparkliscious

Together, a beautiful combination of loveliness.

Today, I made a video for you that combines some of my favorite Shimmerz products (see below).  The end result is stunning, and it will take some work, but it's easy work!  We start with watercolor paper, you can use ANY floral die cuts or punches that you already own, and you can also mix up the Shimmerz colors that you have.  To get this beautiful sparkle however, you'll need to pick up a bottle of Enamelz.  It is quickly becoming a staple in my craft room.  I've just ordered several more bottles.

Hope you enjoy!
