To create the entire canvas you will also need:

Guest Designer, Jamie Dougherty!

It thrills me today, to introduce this months Guest Designer, Jamie Dougherty! Not only is she a friend of mine, but she is brilliant when it comes to using and incorporating paint into her breathtaking mixed media artwork! Here is a little bit more about Jamie in her own words...

"I've been creating art since my late teens. I had a fine arts and pottery background, coming into scrapbooking, so in the eight years that I have been creating scrapbook pages, I have learned to infuse my fine arts into my pieces. I love to involve myself in all aspects and avenues of creativity. Expanding my mediums helps me stay creative and put my best work out there. I am a Prima Educator and Designer and teach classes ranging from scrapbooking to mixed media, with fine arts techniques. I love working with Prima, Ranger Inks, Canvas Corp., PanPastels, and many many others!! :) I also am a writer and enjoy the change in creativity. It helps me stay open to new ideas in my scrapbooking and Mixed media art.

11 x 14 canvas board
Shimmerz Vibez in (Rolling In The Hay)

Thinking Spring!

I am so excited to have warm, sunny days just around the corner. Spring means my tulips start to bloom, the birds come back and fill my trees, the sun feels so warm on my face and makes me smile. It's almost time to stow away those sweaters and boots and CELEBRATE spring.

So with that in mind. . . . there is no better way to celebrate the anticipation of spring than to release a whole new Limited Edition Shimmerz Spring Set.

This set includes: Mint Julip Pearlz, Pretty in Pink Pearlz, Peachy Keen Shimmerz and Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz (named after our very own Heidi Kelley!) The BEST part is all of this Shimmery Springiness is it's on SALE!!
