That is my good news that I have been waiting over a month to tell!! In Mid-January I was asked to join the Shimmerz DT but couldn't tell anyone until now!! I am super excited to be a part of this fabulous team!! A BIG Thank You to Stacey McElyea, the owner of Shimmerz and to Kim Ross, the DT Manager, for having me!! You both ROCK!
And for all those who didn't make it, some are my friends, keep trying! Just because you didn't make it this time, doesn't mean your work isn't any good, it's just not what they were looking for at the time!! Keep trying out for those DT's!!
If you never tried Shimmerz, you definitely must! Shimmerz are a water-based iridescent paint that adds just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle to just about anything!! And they come in the cutest jars! It can be used on paper, chipboard, to jazz up stickers, glass, metal, acetate and the list goes on!! Here are a few things I made recently with Shimmerz.
On this Shamrock shaped card I added some Celery Shimmerz to the felt shamrocks.(click on photo for a closer look)
On this Valentine Birdhouse that I posted recently, you can see how the little birdie just sparkles. I used both Pink Poinsettia and Hotty Pink Shimmerz on the birdie.
And on this Paper Valentine Cupcake, I added some Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz to the Cardstock Stickers.
A Big Thank you to everyone who left me a comment on my last post! I am still bummed about the magazine, but hopefully it will be in the next issue. I already got paid for it, so I hope they will use it! I emailed the editor but haven't heard back yet. I will keep you all informed! And I will keep submitting!! Thanks again everyone!! My "friends" are the best!!
