Hi! I'm so excited to join the Shimmerz design team!
I've watched in awe Missy Whidden play with those lovely colors and I could not be happier to get to do the same!
If you don't know Shimmerz, check out their website. They have lots of gorgeous shimmery watercolors, mists and pastes.
I will be sharing layouts and tips on not only how to use the different products, but also how to choose colors and color combinations.
Here's the first tip. I love to match colors to a collection I know I'm going to use on a layout. It makes the whole process much faster and easier. For one of my first projects I want to use Crate Paper's Wonder collection-
Inklingz (shimmering watercolors)- Miner Miner 49er (a delicate gold), She Packs a Punch (a beautiful warm pink)
Creameez (watercolors with a touch of shimmer)- Get Glowing (lovely gold), Good Ol' Summer Time (one of my favorites- a warm almost coral pink)
Coloringz (flat, as in no shimmer, mist)- Oh Say Can U Sea (bright aqua and gorgeous)
Spritz (iridescent mist)- Caribbean Sunset (a lovely orange red)
Vibez (iridescent mist)- Egg Noggin & Glorious Days (both shimmery gold, glorious days is brighter)
Dazzlerz (shimmery paste and absolutely lovely!)- Dreamscicle (coraly peachy perfection), Coral Me Crazy (soft peach)
Texturez (textural shimmery paste)- Patina (love this color, it's aqua galore!)
If you'd like to play along, you can find these lovelies at the Shimmerz store, mention my name in the instructions to merchant and you'll get a free product!
I'll be back tomorrow with a new layout! Thanks for visiting!
