Awesome Hosier Lane by Lisa Oxley

Howdy Colour Blast Lovers, Lisa Here with a blog update. 
Today I have a layout to share with you.
If you follow my blog or Facebook, you may have seen this little video here, where I stenciled using 3 pieces of white cardstock. Trying to make the most of the stencil, and remove the square look to it when it sits on the page.
For this process I used these gorgeous Colour Blast pastes and
 created a gorgeous fade through of colours. The colours I used were Royalty, Singin' The Blues, Envy, Apple of My Eye, Just Blue.

 During the drying process I spritzed the page lightly with water and added a little distress ink and a little Dylusions purple ink on the other side of the page.

 I also added some Shimmer spray

 In these colours 

  I found some old Tim Holtz Grungeboard and covered it with turquiose paint and while still wet, powdered the piece with Colour Blast Envy Embossing Powder, then heat set it .

Here is the final piece, (photos a little dull due to the crappy weather and no good light) finished with stamps, rub-ons, drippy black house paint, washi tape, and my usual details and layering of Tissue paper.
I kept the embellies to a minimum ,and let the photo, the background and the journaling/title be the focus.

Thanks for dropping by and getting your Colour Blast On.
 Don't forget to check out this sweet Instagram Video of the making of this background ,
See you soon .
