Dream by Danielle Vertigan

I've got Shimmer, Shimmer and more Shimmer for you.
This layout is all about that
Using the Colour Shimmer Sprays
in a selection of colours over Black Cardstock
The first Step was to choose my colours.

As always before starting I adhered my black Cardstock to Chipboard.
When we are going to get this wet the reinforcement helps.
I started by Spritzing one section with one colour. Then adding the second.
I sprayed at close range and liberally.
Make sure your surface is flat and you don't lift the layout to avoid any drips.
I continued adding colour, going back to add some extra colours in to balance once all colours where used.
Once dry it was time to stencil.
I have a new favourite and couldn't go past my Bling Colour Paste.

I ran the Paste through in particular areas mindful of where my photo would be positioned. For this layout I have trimmed down a 4x6 Photo.
Setting that aside it was time to play with these Die-Cuts from Funky Flairs.
I inked 2 with the Thyme and sprinkled with the Apple of my Eye Colour Embossing Powder.
I re-dipped the arrows whilst hot to strengthen the result.
The Dream arrow was done in Bling.
The gold ink set a strong depth of colour.
Whilst hot from the heat gun I dipped the arrow in to the Apple of my Eye Powder.
This created a nice tye-dye effect.

I finished off by gliding my white Gel pen along the edge of my layout to create a border.
I did the same for the photo, crossing 3 lines for the framed edge.

I had a leaf which was apart of my die-cuts also
I spritzed this with Envy and Bling Colour Shimmer Spray then set with the heat gun.
I drew a framed edge with the black gel pen and also completed a stitched line down the centre
of the feather.
Between the Black gel pen border and the die cut edge I ran my White Gel Pen.
My Tiny Flowers where spritzed with
Rose Petal, Envy and Bling Colour Shimmer Spray.

It was now time to complete the layout with the addition of sequins and my Deer Charm.
Corner edges on the photos finished this off perfectly.
Would love to hear how you use your Shimmer Sprays???

Happy Scrapping
