It's all about the Shimmerz Blog Hop!

Today, the Cornish Heritage Farm design team is sharing projects that are all about the shimmer!  Even more specific, Shimmerz!  These little pots of paint are so dazzling.  The Shimmerz and CHF teams swapped products and oh, what a lovely combination...

Shimmery Poppy Pair:


This project was so easy to paint.  I first embossed the image with black detail embossing powder.  This helped me keep the paint where I wanted it.  Then, over time, I built up multiple layers of the paint to give a vibrant darker color.  The image was solely colored with Shimmerz paints.

I do have to apologize for the way the picture looks a bit wonky (very technical term here).  I think it's because I was getting a bit of reflection from all that shine from the paints that it looks that way. And... it's just dazzling in real life!


Since we thought it would be fun to blog hop, be sure to stop by and visit Joanne next...
