"Looking Fabulous" by Michelle Logan

A big excited Hello to everyone, Michelle here
as I share for the first time as a Design Team Member here using just fabulous products! 
I have been having so much messy fun putting these products through their paces, that I have too many projects to share! Yay me.... I am ahead of my game (first time for everything!)

So without further ado here is my first project, a scrapbook page featuring my 2 boys:

I used the Embossing Powders as well as the coordinating Shimmer Sprays on my chippies  to get a metallic "grunged-up" look, they worked a treat!

So how did I do it I hear you ask? 
Too easy! 
I shall explain: 
First the background piece (which is left over alphabet "backing"..... yes I keep just never know!).
 I  gave it a spray randomly with a couple of Shimmer Spray colours:
 "Singing the Blues", "Dusty Charcoal" and "Steel".
  These sprays gave the raw chipboard a touch of colour and a hint of shimmer, I wanted more texture, so I then embossed sections of the panel with embossing powders in "Steel", "Dusty Charcoal" and "Snow White".
The Snow White gave a glittery effect.

On the Wings I did pretty much the same process, except instead of spraying I used a brush to colour the details. I just wanted the wing tips embossed, so I used an embossing pen and the 
"Steel"  Embossing Powder to achieve the look!
Take a closer peek:

So what is left? The chipboard words of course!

These are just embossed in the usual manner in the "Steel" colour then I sprayed the "Dusty Charcoal" and "Singing The Blues" Simmer Spray on top to create a bit of colour variation.

Lastly the Title:
 I embossed with "Steel" and "Snow White" to get a sparkle happening. Then sprayed with
"Singing The Blues" to get a tinge of blue to coordinate with the background.
Here is a list of the Colour Blast products I have used: 
Shimmer Sprays:
Dusty Charcoal
Singing the Blues
Embossing Powders:
Snow White

And Here is where you can get your hands on them,
