Have A Monsterrific Day!

October is finally here! I don't know about you, but I'm definitely ready for some cooler weather. It's been so hot here in Florida.

Maybe it's because Halloween's almost here, but I seem to have monsters on the brain lately. I made this card using a mixture of Pink Paislee papers, chipboard and other bits and pieces. It's not really intended to be a Halloween card, but I think it could be used as one, since there is a monster involved!!! :) You can see more details on how I used the Shimmerz paints here. Speaking of monsters my kids picked out my next Pink Paislee blog project, for this month. Stay tuned and I'll be sharing that soon. :)

Supplies used:
Pink Paislee - Patterned paper, glitter alphas, cardstock letters chipboard borders and chipboard shapes

Shimmerz Paints - Shimmerz Spritz (Licorice) and Shimmerz (Wed Wagon)

Technique Tuesday and Maya Road - Chipboard (eyes and nose)

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics

Other: Fur trim and raffia from Hobby Lobby. Computer font (Mystic)

When my order of Shimmerz Spritz paints came last month. I loved them so much I took a picture of them.......... They just looked so yummy!!! It was kind of like getting a brand new box of crayons! Remember that feeling? :)

Anyways, when I got the invite to stay on as a design team member, I couldn't resist!!! The Shimmerz girlz are so sweet and I love working with the paints. So from now on, my projects will be a combination of Shimmerz and Pink Paislee.
