Love Life by Suzy Loudon

Hello again, I'm back again on such a wonderful day (my birthday) to share another project done with the great Colour Blast range. This time I've been playing with the Mica Powders and seeing what they can do.

To begin my page I stamped some tissue paper with black Stazon. I then tore it into strips (tearing around all edges leaving no cut lines). Using clear gesso I pasted it down on my white card, also sealing the top of the tissue paper and entire card. 

I ran some white texture paste through a stencil (flower) over the tissue papered area.
Once dry I lightly spritzed with water then sprinkled Mica Powder in Lemon Zing & Cool Mint. 

I spritzed the Mica Powder with more water until it dissolved. 

While that was drying I moved onto my chipboard.
First I mixed some Cool Mint Mica Powder with some white gesso & painted my chipboard. 
I then mixed some of the Mica Powder with water in a tiny spritzer & sprayed my chipboard for a little more shimmer. 

Once my page was dry I sewed around my page with a sewing machine.
I stamped randomly with a butterfly stamp (black stazon).
Then using Tangareen Dream Colour Paste I added the small x's through a stencil. 

My Chipboard Love Life was done mixing some Lemon Zing Mica Powder with a little white paste. I also added a few extra x's.
Putting it all together I added some flowers, black pearls, string & flourish.

The amazing shimmer of the Colour Blast products is hard to capture, but it is absolutely divine. 

I hope you've enjoyed more about of my page and I hope you feel inspired to go out and play with some Colour Blast Products yourself. Click HERE if you'd like to purchase some or find out more.
