Natures Art - Gabrielle Pollacco (with a Video tutoria)

Hi everyone! I thought today I would share a step by step on how I made the above layout, start to finish. Here are the Shimmerz products I used to create this page....

Shimmerz Products used:
~ Hot Fudge Spritz
~ My Bleeding Heart Coloringz
~ Ruby Spritz
~ Caribbean Sunset Sprtiz
~ Tuscan Sun Spritz 
~Rolling In the Hay Vibez
~ Copperhead Dimensionz
~ I'm not Limon Inklingz
~ Gosh Garnet Inklingz

Dusty Attic Products used: 
~ Wildflower #2
~ Vine Border

Rather than try and explain the steps, I've made up a video tutorial to show you how I did it.  So grab a cuppa coffee/or tea sit back and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy watching my video and will want to give your own page a try!  Here are a few closeups of the page that you can view at your leisure....

I used some blooms from Tresors de luxe to decorate the corner cluster by the photo.

I added a little texture with somehome made texture paste with a stencil and I added a shabby brick look by lightly brushing on some Copperhead Dimensionz with the tip of my finger.  The Dusty Attic vine I painted with some 'I'm Not Limon' Inklingz.

After spritzing my background with a variety of Shimmerz Spritz's, I added some stamping and rub-on's. I also fussy cut some elements from Prima Almanac papers to embellish.  I painted the new

I hope you enjoyed my project today and will give these gorgeous HERE. And remember, to receive your own FREE/Bonus Shimmerz product be sure to mention my name in the INTRUCTIONS TO MERCHANT area of your order.
