Urban Lily and Shimmerz Pearlz paints

My first project for Urban Swank is a wall hanging for my mom. For this project" She Loves her 7 girls" I glued Urban Lily paper... from entitled Sushi the every day collection. The paper is glued on to a 12 x 12 canvas board and then I lightly distressed the paper with watered down white gesso.

This is the original paper

You can find the paper product for this project here.
To accent this beautiful collection I add some of the flowers from the Sushi Dot and Linen collection with the blues to the page. I tried to tie in the blues from the chipboard and paper flowers by adding some paints to
the canvas.

To create texture and visual dimention on the paper I placed dry wall tape over the canvas and spritzed Shimmerz paints over the page. The colors of paint filtered thru the tape to create the mesh effect on the paper. Once this was completed I added some of the new collection of Shimmerz Pearls paints in Ballet Slipper and Grey Flannel. I accented the white flowers with blue mist and accented the center of the flower by adding Shimmerz Pearls in Grey Flannel. This allowed me to coordinate the Number It chipboard is from the Urban Lily collection as well. You can purchase the Urban Lily collections here.
All papers are from the Urban Lily collection

Untitled Small Clip board

My Mom has 11 grandchildren and she is putting together her new craft room. I am creating small projects using photos of her grandchildren and this is one of the projects that I created using the Urban Lily collections of papers.

For this small project I cut out some of the elements from the Urban Lily Lulliloo collection. I used Lalo and Lu Lu for this page. I cut a square piece of the dot paper and layered it over the clip board. I then cut out the La lo paper detail and mounted it on cardboard to add dimension. The paint around the edge of the board is Shimmerz Pearls in Ballet Slipper and Grey Flannel. The flower is painted with creamy Shimmerz pearlz in Morning Mist paint.
