Basic Backgrounds with CATHY!!!

 
We have a new face on our Ed Team!! We are thrilled to announce that Cathy Bluteau has agreed to move on over from the Design Team and continue to inspire us all with her amazing creations by uploading some awesome videos for Shimmerz! Here's a glimpse into something that she has recently created for us...
What a beautiful couple of pages in her art journal! (I am secretly hoping that she will make me one of these beauties... :))

Cathy says...
"Hi everyone - I am so happy to be the newest member of the shimmerz team! Today I am bringing you a very basic technique using my shimmerz paints. I often get asked how I create my backgrounds for my journals with shimmerz - how I get the depth of color and the blend of colors - so here in this video is my very simple technique for creating great backgrounds!
I promise in the next video that I will introduce myself properly on the video, ie showing my face etc. etc. - just didn't have time to do a proper intro this month!"




So enjoy!

which are the shimmerz are you using for this pink, orange and yellow pape.. are you using the coloringz?

I believe Cathy used Shimmerz Spritz products, i.e. Bed of Roses, Ruby, Tuscan Sun and maybe Caribbean Sunset as the orange.
