Fun with PAPER

Okay, as many of you alread know, I LOVE using Creative Inspirations Paints to add shimmer to my paper!!

Well, today is NO different!

I sat down the other day and had so much fun creating this piece of paper, and let me tell you it sure shimmers!!

First the paper:
I used some bubble wrap to add some fun interest to the paper!  I just love saving bubble wrap and using it to stamp with the paints!

I also decided to get out my marbles and roll the around on the paper as well!
First, I rolled the marble around in the cover and then dropped it onto my paper.

I then used one of my paint brushes to move it around the paper.

Lastly, I thought it would be fun to use a sandwich bag to add some interest to the paper as well!

Just look at all the shimmer:
I used Sage, Tutu Pink, Mango, Sapphire, Plum, Autumn Wheat, buttercup, Tickled Pink and Spring Green!!

You're probably wondering by now what I used it for...

Well I thought it would be a great piece of paper to use to create a layout of pictures of my little guy from dying Easter eggs last year!
I just love how the paper almost looks like the yummy eggs!!


I didn't want to take away from the paper too much and being it was for my little boy's album I kept this layout pretty simple.

The Egg title was created using my Cricut and the little "painting zone" sentiment is from the newly released "Easter Greetings" set from My Thoughts Exactly

The little "to Dye for" sentiment is from this set as well!!

Have a great day!
