For today’s project I created a 12×12 layout using a recent photo of my adorable niece.
I was anxious to use the goodies Jody sent me in my Design Team package. I started off with white cardstock. I began with the Shimmerz Dazzlerz Texture Paste in the Sour Apple color. I had never worked with Shimmerz products before and as soon as I opened that container I was hooked! The shimmer of the product is amazing. It is so pretty. I can’t wait to get a few more colors. I used a floral stencil to create a circle in the center of my page with the Shimmerz Paste. I then created a few layers with velum and the White Lace Paper Doilies. I painted the doily that is right behind the picture with pink gelatos. For the second layer which is a piece of velum I dipped the edges of the velum with the Shimmerz Paste and created a pretty shimmery border. The third layer was also velum which I painted with gelatos as well. For the final layer I folded the white doilies to add some additional texture.
I also knew I wanted to use the Studio Calico Printshop Wood Veneer Circles with the adorable sentiments. I took some gelatos and water colors to paint them. I kept the color scheme for this layout in the pinks, greens and hints of yellow & gold. Everything else on the page is neutral. I also brought in some cork, which is one of my favorite products to work with. I added a few of the Chunky cork hearts and Chunky Stars to the circle I created around my photo. I then added the Cork chevrons in all four corners to draw your eye to the center of the page. To finish off the layout I added some ink splatters in Gold, green and pink and to add just a bit more shimmer I added some of the Gold Garland Sequin. I felt the page needed a border so I added a yellow border with some patterned paper from my stash.
This layout was so fun to make. All of the amazing products found in the Spiegelmom Scraps store can be paired with your favorite collections, some of the new sequin blends go perfectly with a lot of the new lines revealed at CHA 2016. As you can see from my layout, I didn’t even need to bring in any other collections, I was able to create my layout using mainly Spiegelmom Scraps products.
