Shimmerz Video Blog Hop!

Welcome to the second stop in the Shimmerz Video Blog Hop! Hopefully you arrived here from my fabulous team leader, Jeni Boisvert's blog. If not then get yourself back to the Shimmerz Paints blog and follow along our blog hop route! If you follow along, you have an opportunity to win one of five of our whole new Vintage collection which is available for purchase today! If you are on the right track then read on...

The Shimmerz Paints Education Team will be bringing you a tutorial video each month to give you lots of tips and techniques on how to use our fabulous products! We will also be providing online and in store classes featuring Shimmerz products! My first video is a little rough, so cut me some slack and be kind! I hope you are all bilingual, meaning you speak Bostonian AND English so that you will be able to understand me!

September's video is all about the new release of the Vintage collection from Shimmerz Paints. There are four new colors of Shimmerz and three new colors of Shimmerz Spritz in new little Miniz which are smaller than the original. The colors are beautiful and I had so much fun working with them!



Here are the two canvases that I have created:

The first one "The Girls" is a canvas I did for a 40th birthday gift for my Bestie Becky. She emailed me a picture of herself with her two girls and I wanted to create something special for her. Just click on the images to make them larger and to see the detail.

 

 


This canvas "Through Thick & Thin" is for my other BFF, Denise. I create a layout for her for her wedding anniversary every year and this one is for #5! She had a photo shoot done by the FABULOUS photographer, Chea Lamb and I asked for permission to use one on my canvas. You must check out Chea's photography here.

 

 


I also want to give a little shout out to Teresa Collins and say thanks for the Friendship collection that I used on these projects. I love this line and it was so sweet of her to send it to me!!

Ok, lastly here is my video! Oh, how I cringe when I watch and listen to myself, but I guess I'll get used to it! Now, pay attention to when I mention my favorite color from the new line! You will need to remember this for a chance to win the whole Vintage collection! Make sure you click "pause" on my music playlist before viewing.



Leave a comment here on my blog and I will pick one lucky reader/viewer on Friday to receive a jar of beautiful Shimmerz Paint! (Colors will vary)


Now, hop on over to Tanisha Long's blog for the third stop in our blog hop and watch her brilliant video tutorial!

Thanks for watching and keep Shimmering!
