Shimmerz Vibez Love Canvas

Hello! Happy Shimmerz Vibez premiere day! I'm really loving visiting the Shimmerz Ed team and Design team to see all of the projects they have created. Such inspiration!!

I started playing around with making some paper roses after seeing some in the craft store and seeing how expensive they were. I made the red rose below out of a paper grocery bag. I just cut a big circle and then cut it into a spiral. I wrapped the paper around and around until it resembled a rose. You could cut into it to make petals but I liked the rustic look of leaving it rough. I then sprayed it with Vibez in Red-y Or Not (my fave). I cut the leaves out of a paper bag as well and sprayed them with a beautiful green shade called Vertigre. Now, believe it or not, the pink roses are sprayed with the same color but since I made them out of plain white copy paper instead of the paper bag, the shade looks totally different! I really loved the way the flowers came out so I decided to put them on a canvas. The chipboard LOVE is from Making Memories. I painted it with some crackle paint for some texture and then sprayed it with a couple of coats of Jeni B Blue. Love that color too! I think it is my second fave! For the background of the canvas, I painted it with some copper acrylic paint and then sprayed it with Penny Pincher, a gorgeous shade of copper.

 

 

 

 


For the finishing touches, I added a little bling from Prima, some ribbon and a corsage pin from Making Memories and some T-Drops (love those!!) from Teresa Collins. I found the cute ruffled ribbon at our local scrapbook store. I'll do a little video tutorial on how to make the roses very soon, so keep checking back. I also have a Valentine's Day layout that I will post for you tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment on any of the Vibez posts below for a chance to win a bottle of my favorite color!

Blessings,
Lori
