Grungy Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout For Shimmerz

Hi friends!

Today I want to share a layout I created for Shimmerz. When I was thinking about what I want to do for this layout, I knew that I wanted to work on a different surface than just paper. So I decided that I will work on fabric for this layout. I used Tim Holtz Eclectic Element 12*12 fabric squares. 

I haven't been making really grungy projects for a while, so I made this layout quite grungy. The paper strips I used to layer is Prima's stationer's desk. the colors coordinate with the fabric beautifully. 

Fabric really soaks up the mists and paints, so I applied couple layers of colors and gessoed the area where I want the color to show up more vibrant. To make it grungy, I used Vibez in color Before Dawn to make some area darker so its not vibrant colors everywhere. I also used black ink to do the stamping to add more grungy feelings. 

This start-to-finish video will show you how I made this layout:

Product List: 
- Coloringz: My Bleeding Heart, Pink Stillettos.
-Spritz: Bed Of Roses
-Vibez: Before Dawn
-Dazzerlerz: Pucker Up Pink
-Texturez: Tidi Widi

Thank you for looking.
Love <3

Mixed Media Background Technique (WCYDT for Flying Unicorn)

Hi friends!

I am so excited to share with you this mixed media background technique. This technique is great for art journal, card background, and layout background. Basically, it is just a great easy way to create quick mixed media background. I used Shimmerz new product INKLINGZ in this technique. If you want to know the product I used, I introduced it in the beginning of the video :)

Also Please check out Flying Unicorn Store for all kinds of yumminess!! 

1. wet your background paper with water. You don't have to over wet your paper, just a bit water to make sure the fibers are wet, so that when you spray on your mists, they won't be soaked in immediately.

2. Spray your favorite mists on to the paper. Spray as much or as less as you wish.

3. When the surface is still wet, wet INKLINGZ and apply some colors to the background. Because of the unique creamy consistency of INKLINZ, it will push away the background colors where you apply it. So it won't blend in with the background color and will give a really nice color pay off.
However, the edge will still be blended with the background color. Anyways, the background just turned out looking really good. All the mediums will just do all the job for you. 

4. To add more texture onto the background. Splat some water onto the paper. Let the water splatters sit for about 10 second and dry the water drops. Then you will notice the colors where the water splatters sat are lifted off.

Anyways, hope you like this technique and try it out yourself using your favorite colors :) :)
