Relax by Suzy Loudon

 Welcome back to the Colour Blast Blog. 
Today I'm sharing a male page of one of my boys.

To begin my page I smeared some white Gesso around my page with my pallet knife.

Once dry I applied Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste through a stencil.

I then used the Steel Colour Paste through another stencil.

Whilst waiting for it all to dry I mixed up some Polar Colour Mica Powder with some water. I added a small drop of liquid glue to act as a binder, mixing well.

 Instead of spraying my Colour Sprays (I used Sapphire & Rainforest)I twisted the caps off my bottles & either used a dropper or the base of the spray squirter to add colour onto my page. I also used a water spray to thin/lighten the intense colour. I added the Polar Mica mix with a paint brush.

I added some splashed in Love Colour Spray to the background.

Next I focused on my chipboard elements. For my chevrons I first sprayed them with Sapphire Colour Spray. I then mixed some of the Sapphire Spray with some Mod Podge sealer.Using a paint brush I dabbed it on in varying thickness.
Once dry I brushed on some areas (not covering the entire piece) of the remaining Polar Mica mix. 

Leaving to dry overnight so it was completely dry before I stamped using a script stamp & Stazon black ink.

A quick spray of some chipboard using Road Base Colour Spray.

To do my title I grabbed some old letters. To cover the funky polka dots I covered my letters in Stazon ink first before embossing them with Colour Embossing Powder in Dusty Charcoal.

I got this really cool bumpy watery effect on the letters. I'm not sure if it's from the Stazon under the embossing liquid or from the hot humid day we were having when I did it, or a combination of both...but I love the effect.

To liven up my arrows I glued some glitter on 2, glued some glass beads on another 2. Then dabbed some texture paste on the last.

Once dry I used the inside tube thing to drip the colour onto my embellishments. I did about 3 coats using Love, Sapphire & Road Base Colour Sprays.

I added my elements and a few others to complete my page.

Thanks for looking.
