Snow Day by Danielle Vertigan

Its been chilly down in Melbourne.
So I decided to mix some Spring Brights and a Winter Snap Shot that needed colour!
I started with some of my favourites!
Bling Colour Paste
Colour Shimmer in
First things First.......
I picked a flowering Stencil and got to it using my Bling Colour Paste.
The intensity of the gold is Amazing
(A must have for any Colour Blast Collection)

Normally I do a lot of these free style and decided to take a more controlled  approach this time around.
Once the texture paste was dry I added water to two sections of my paint palette.  In one of these I added the shimmer colour Lollipop using a spatula. You will need to give this a good mix with the a paint brush. I began adding the watercolour to my layout in the areas I wanted it to feature. Tilting slightly to create drips in the desired areas.
Once I had used all the colour I then mixed my brush into the second water hole. This gave me a diluted colour and enabled me to create another layer of colour. Once I had used up all the second well I flicked my brush to create splatters.
Then repeated this process using Paris.
I was careful to get only minimal overlap in colours.
I wanted to keep them bright.
Using a mixture of the Doily, Washi Tape and Punchinella I was able to add some more texture and this framed the photo perfectly.
You can see how Crisp the splats are in the pics both above and below. I think they give a really nice effect creating there own little feature.
A mix of embellishments finished this off beautifully.

Layered with some twine, my "love" punch and of coarse a Funky Flair!
I'm very grateful for the colour choice when buying her suit!
Its allowed me to put together a really fun layout....
Spring can include our winter brights after all
What will your next project be?
Perhaps you to could pop a little spin on it going outside the box too?
