I AM SO excited to announce that my friend, and the incredibly talented, Jamie Dougherty is joining us on our Shimmerz Education team and has created a tutorial for you all today! Jamie is currently an Educator for Prima and has also recently become a published author. Jamie's use of paints and mixed media is sure to inspire all of you!

"I was raised around many different talented and artistic people, who were very encouraging and supportive, always teaching me new skills in arts and crafts. When I reached High school my main focus became painting and sculpting. I won many awards and scholarships for my pottery and sculpting pieces. Life had taken over and my love for art took a backseat to family but when my daughter was born in 2003 I decided to begin scrapbooking, taking those memories and journaling them for future generations. Like everyone my style has morphed and expanded since I began. Recently I went back to my roots of fine arts and meld my two passions together. Bringing my paper arts into my fine mixed media skills. My style is eclectic and varies on the design and subject I'm creating for, I don't limit myself with a label. I love to step outside of the box and push my limits. I enjoy teaching others the skills I have learned and created and inspiring others to find their own styles and creativity. I live in Southern California with my husband and our two children, I am blessed with the opportunity to work on my art full time while being there for my children.

Today is my first post as a Shimmerz Educator. I am so excited to be joining an amazing group of artists. Today I would like to share this video of how I designed an artistic background for my scrapbook page. 

Here is a look at the finished project.

Colorz used were: Coloringz LTD: Heidi-Ho-Blue, Spritz: Eucalyptus, Vibez: Sea Monkey, Blingz: Island Salsa, Enamelz: Fake Bake
