Swatching Shimmerz Paintz

Hello, It's Jody.  I have a quick blog sharing how I like to swatch new products especially, watercolors.  I learned this exercise from Irit Landgraf.  She happens to be my very favorite mixed media artist.  I took her online Watercolor Workbook class several months ago and I still use the exercises she provided to help me have fun and be loose with the paints.  Speaking of the paints, Shimmerz Paintz had an unbelievable %40 off sale for New Years.  Heck yeah, I grabbed several! Nine Creameez to be exact in the following colors, Crow's Feet, Purple Rain, Just Peachie, Pink Champagne, She Shells, Raisin Cane. Paradise Punch. Sand of a Beach and Good Ol' Summer Time.

I grabbed my current favorite stamp from Hero Arts and Ranger's Archival Ink in gray,  I put down 9 circle stamps, one for each color.  I opened each watercolor pot and added a little water to activate them.  Then, I just started to paint, splatter and have fun!  There is not a right or wrong way to do this.  My hope is that I'll find a picture that coordinates well with the colors or a paper collection that does so I can use it as a background.  I hope you are inspired to swatch all your new products in a fun way! After all, it's just water, paint, and paper ❤️

This is a video sharing my new Shimmerz Paintz watercolors.
