Guest Designer for Shimmerz!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone and Happy Friday :))
Well I am super duper lucky and so happy to be this months Guest Designer for Shimmerz.   Shimmerz has been an all time favourite product of mine since I found it a couple of years a go now.  It has to be one of the first things my hand reaches for when I start a project!
This months Challenge at Shimmerz is:
So here is my first project I created based on that challenge. I am so in love with the new MME ranges! This background paper just screamed to me lots of rips and tears and shabbiness :))  Love the new Scrap FX chipboard that looks like twine...amazing!

"Bloom where you are Planted"

 Here is a list of what I used:
Background Coloringz – Lime in da Coconut 
Coloringz – No Yoking 
Pearlz – Green with Envy Altered Flowers 
Spritz – Caribbean Sunset 
Shimmerz – Pink Blingz – Hottie Pink 
I love to use Shimmerz to alter things, weather it be flowers, chipboard, backgrounds and so on. Here is a close up of an altered flower. Love the shimmer and shine and lots of texture it adds to everything when altering with Shimmerz.

For my background I have used modelling paste with a mask and then randomly spritzed the 2 Coloringz. Love the bright colours in the Coloringz range. To add extra depth and deepen the colours further I have unscrewed the bottle top and using a fine paint brush I painted in between the masked area as well as some Pearlz – Green with Envy (one of my favourite colours!)

If you have some Shimmerz products in your stash, get creating.... you never know you could be their next Guest Designer! :))  I will have a few more Shimmerz projects to share with you all over the next few weeks.
As I am typing this I am madly doing last minute packing.  We leave very early tomorrow and head down to the Sunshine Coast for 10 days before I have the baby.  Its so hard to believe that today is my last day at home on my own.  Next time I will be back at home, I will hopefully have another little person to love and cherish :))) gosh getting a little teary just thinking about it.  We are so excited we cannot wait!
So stay tuned for more scrappy updates, which I have pre-scheduled and BABY NEWS! :))
No doubt lots of photos to share!
Till then :)
