So HappyTogether by Trudi Harrison

Hi Everyone,
Trudi back with you today sharing some more Colour Blast inspiration! 
I had so much fun creating with Shimmer Sprays and Colour Pastes.  
The background for this layout was first started as a sample for a workshop where we worked with
 Fire Engine and Sunshine Shimmer Sprays and Fire Engine and Deep Water Colour Paste and Gesso.
There it sat for a little while in storage until the other night when I pulled it out.  The great thing about creating with mixed media is that you can keep adding layers - and if you are not happy with something, white gesso can be your best friend for starting over. 
For my layout 'So Happy Together', I wanted to grunge things up a little so I added some more masked detail with Dusty Charcoal and Deep Water Colour Paste. More colour depth was added with Dusty Charcoal Shimmer Spray and a little contrast with Sunshine.
After applying the Dusty Charcoal, I felt it was a little bold so to soften a little white gesso was dabbed over the top.

Thanks so much for dropping by,
Till next time
