Vibez Flowers

I spent some time playing with the vibrant colors of the new Shimmerz Vibez!! This is my favorite Shimmerz product to date! I experimented by spraying Vibez on some cotton batting and making some flowers that have the look of felted wool. So fun and easy!!

Here's how I created them:

A close-up of Grape Escape over dry brushed Gesso on the background. The shimmer of the Vibes is amazing....truly the best I have seen in any product!!

And my finished layout, I used some Webster's Pages on this one....this month we did a guest lift of the sweet and talented Lynn Yen, so I gave this one double duty.

I love this old photo of me, my mom and Joe, my brother. This is from 1978 and a proud big sister moment for me.

The background was dry brushed with gesso and then misted with Grape Escape Vibez...the edges were lightly spritzed with Breaking Dawn Vibez and edges painted with a bit of Coal Shimmerz.

Can I just say, I love scrapbooking. I scrapped my first layout this weekend in 2 weeks.....and it felt great! Still buzzing from CHA and the wonderful people that I met there......a couple that I was really star struck by that were incredibly sweet.....Ronda and Debee. I've been fans of their work forever. Wish I had asked for a picture. lol

See you soon,
