Playing with Shimmerz

A technique to show you as part of my Saturday reveal for MonScrapbook.com
I am about to get my hands dirty and create a page that is filled with Shimmerz!
What is Shimmerz you ask? well.. ShimmerzTM is a water-based paint that has the spunk and sparkle to help any project shine!



For my project today I used 2 colors of Shimmerz Paints called
Coffee and Green Olive


To start off my project, i gathered my supplies
2 colors of paints, foam brush and some pattern papers.



It's such a simple step, simply dip your foam brush in the paint ( you can also use a makeup sponge or smaller paint brush!) I like to make a mess, so i used a foam brush. It only takes a few minutes to dry.



The final product is sooo shinney and has the perfect touch of glimmer and shine.



I also used some paint on my flowers for a shimmery brown look and also used it on my brown pattern paper, and chipboard alphas. It can used on anything..prima flowers, foam alphas, even buttons if you wish!


You can see the shimmer on my alphas and flowers from this angle as well.




And My finished page -
Over 45 colors of Shimmerz
can be found at Mon Scrapbook.com's online store >> HERE
