So I printed off this dramatic gorgeous gown photo over a year ago (an image I got off of Pinterest) and had meant to do a page with rich colors and textures for quite some time now. Finally got around to doing it (as I still had so much family pics to scrap!). Sometimes it’s fun to do a page ‘just because’, know what I mean?
These are the Shimmerz Paints products I used for this project….as you will see in the video tutorial, each of these products has it’s own unique quality whether it be the smooth thick texture of the Dazzlerz, the deep rich tones in the Coloringz and Vibez or the incredible shimmer of the Inklingz.
NOTE: You can purchase your Shimmerz Paints HERE. Be sure to mention my name “Gabrielle” in the Instructions to Merchant part of your order to get your FREE/Bonus Shimmerz paint product in the color of your choice with your next Shimmerz Paints order!
As always, a project is not complete for me unless I have a nice selection of Dusty Attic Chipboard in them. Above are the Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces I used for my project: Ornamental Trim Set (brand new product), Word Pack #14, Lacey Heart Frame Set…..and I used a NEW Dusty Attic Stencil design called Fans….if you haven’t seen all the gorgeous new stencils from Dusty Attic, be sure to check them out, they are amazing, you can view them HERE!! You can find Dusty Attic Chipboard at The Scrapbook Diaries.
I also used 3 stamp sets I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries, the two stamp sets on the left and right (above) are a couple of the newest stamps I’ve designed for them. You can purchase my stamps at this link at The Scrapbook Diaries. And good news for those ‘down under’….Joanne Flannery at Embellish It! in New Zealand is now carrying my stamps (and stencils!) you can find her store HERE.
So it’s time to give yourself a little break, grab your favourite beverage and hope you enjoy watching my little video tutorial on how to make this page….Enjoy!
Hope you had fun watching my tutorial. Here are a few close-ups you can view at your leisure….
I should note that after I filmed my tutorial, I felt my design needed a little more color in the bottom right section so I added a couple more spritzes of paint and some swirls of fibre threads (from a package I got from my local dollar store).
I’ve had these Prima jewelled leaves sitting in my stash forever! When I was choosing my embellishing products I totally had to use these as I thought they were a good match for the colors I was using in the layout!
I’m just loving those new Ornamental trims from Dusty Attic, ….kinda sad I’ve used the whole pack up….thinking I need to get me some more 🙂 ….Really loving the new stencil designs as well, in the top right corner you can see some of the texture and design I got onto the page using the Fan stencil from Dusty Attic with my Homemade Texture Paste and some Shimmerz Paints.
The pink and black butterflies were cut from one of my favorite Bo Bunny collections called Primrose (I used the paper called Bliss). I also used a fun BoBunny Stamp on this page called ‘Butterflies’. TIP: Many of you ask what to do when your paper buckles from wetting or spritzing your paper with paints and water. One of my favorite things to do is use my hair flattening iron on the paper, its a quick and easy fix!
So I hope you enjoyed todays post and hope I’ve given you some inspiration to get out your scrapping/mixed media products and play!
Just a recap of some of Gabbi’s layouts from this year to inspire you as well
