Marbeling Memories with Amy Prior

Hi there Colour Blast fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing a pretty shabby chic inspired layout using lots of gorgeous Colour Blast products alongside some BoBunny papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Scrappers Garden flowers. 

Lots of gorgeous details on this layout include the funky marbled pattern background. See below for a quick step-by-step on how I created this effect.

The Dusty Attic Chipboard frame has been covered with some Embossing Paste before a generous sprinkle of Leather, Bling and Snow White Colour Embossing Powders. If you don't like the mottled effect, use just one colour and create an even coat of the powder before melting with your heat tool.

 Lots of beautiful papers and flowers finished this layout off perfectly with some additions of bling as well! Who doesn't love a bit of glitter here and there.

Steps for creating a faux marbled background.

Step 1: Blob various colours of Colour Paste over the top of a stencil, I've used Bling, Leather and Snow White. It is super important that the stencil stays still so stick it down with some Washi Tape to avoid any movement in the stencil.

Step 2: Quickly scrape the colours together but only once up and down then once side to side. If you over work this step you will simply mix the colours together and not get the funky marble pattern detail.

Step 3: Remove the stencil and heat dry that glorious pattern detail. Make sure you clean your stencil quickly also as the Colour Paste dries very quickly.

Well that is it from me today, until next time, happy scrapping!
