My Debut Creations with Shimmerz Paints

My debut creations with Shimmerz is here!!! Finally I manage to get them posted here... For those who have been following Shimmerz, you guys probably had seen them on the blog.. Here are the 2 projects I've done for my January assignments - an altered journal book cover and a 3D Victorian altered heart art placard... 

I had this idea of building blocks of pencils and plant some blooms onto it... Since I didn't get to have the space for such a garden piece, I transferred this idea onto a book cover using yellow, gold and pink as my choice of colours... Used a total of 14 wooden pencils and flooded almost the whole cover with roses from Prima... It's pretty great amount of work...




Always wanted to do something Victorian, yet can't get it started when you've the idea but kinda unable to get inspired... While I was searching for something to work on, I found this very nice frame chipboard in my stash and its like there forever untouched... Certainly this was what I've been looking for for this project... Breaking away from the common pastel shabby look for Valentine, here I am creating this Victorian piece of art placard with a Baroque touch...
