Let it Shimmer Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting Shimmer Brushes! This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Maz Wood’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Supply List:  Mix-Ins Paper Packet, Stitched Together Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet (stickers), Aurora Paper Packet (zip strips), Toffee Shimmer Brush, Evergreen Shimmer Brush, Clear Shimmer Brush, White Alphabet Foam Stickers, Wooden Arrows, 3-D Foam Tape, Stitched Together Picture My Life Cards, Bitty Sparkles, and Liquid Glass.

This was a fun layout, using some of my most favorite photos. Plus, I also love all things glittery and shiny so Shimmer Brushes are right up my alley! I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the stickers and the Toffee Shimmer Brush on the wooden arrows. I attempted to use the Evergreen Shimmer Brush on the White Alphabet Foam Stickers and here’s how that turned out…
First, I wasn’t sure that it was going to work at all because the foam didn’t seem to be taking the color and looked like this:

Then, as I added more of the shimmer brush it seemed to rest on the letter and as it dried it looked like it was soaking in. See the difference here:

After leaving it overnight (more on this in the story below), it didn’t seem to fully dry so I added a layer of Liquid Glass over the top to seal it. Sometimes Liquid Glass can change the color of inks and as I was adding it (letters already on the layout) they seemed to change to a bluish color but when I came back later in the day after it had all dried, they were a dark green, which I was very happy with for this layout.

Here’s a closeup of some of the shiny things…how cool are they?!!

Funny story on how I found out that the letters didn’t fully dry… I told my 9-year-old today that sometimes there are mysteries in life and you are given clues to figure it out. Today, I wondered why the letter N was a lighter shade than the rest of the letters. I thought maybe a little girl was at my desk and touched it but she would have green on her fingers…can I see your hands? Hmm, there’s ink on your hands…that’s a clue! Then I said I noticed a paper on my desk with the letter N on it and it looked like someone ‘stamped’ with it….
Sorry mom….
Mystery solved! 😉

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Michelle Johns Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
