New Shimmerz Colors

Today Shimmerz is celebrating the release of our 4 newest products: Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz, Jilted Jade Shimmerz, Island Salsa Blingz, and Caribbean Sunset Spritz!!!
One of the things that I love about shimmerz is that I can give my projects that "WOW factor" no matter how much (or little) product I apply.

For my first layout, I added just a touch of the new jilted jade to the upper and lower left corners because they looked a little blah to me. Just a few tiny brush strokes enhanced the distressed look and satisfied my need to spice up the layout. I also added jilted jade to the green swirly sticker to give it a little shine!

This next layout was created as a part 2 to this LO. I took the photo on the original when I was 9 months pregnant with Xander. I took the photo seen here when he was nine months old, hence the title 9 months later. (quirky, I know, but I have a thing with numbers)

I went all out and made this one shimmerlicious! First I used chipboard hearts as masks as I spritzed patterned paper with the new Caribbean Sunset Spritz. Next I painted some of the hearts with Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz which by the way, has become my favorite color! I also swiped a few strokes of Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz along the edge of the layout and completely covered the blue flower...it's really shiny in person!

I painted the row of chipboard hearts with Island Salsa Blingz. The "orangish" color actually lightened the dark red chipboard and made it a better match for the layout.

Because I love shimmerz so much, I tossed in a few existing products. I sprayed the red flower with Barn Yard spritz, and the ribbon with Baby's Breath spritz, then painted the black flower with Pixie Dust Blingz.

There are just so many different uses for Shimmerz...just pick up one (or 10) and give it a whirl, you can't mess it up!
