'My Boy" by Rachel Dutko

Hello Colour Blast fans, 
Rachel with you today with a grungy boy layout 

"My Boy".



I have a step by step tutorial of how I created my layout-


First I layered my base colour using Candy Colour Shimmer Dust. I picked up a tiny bit out of the pot with the end of my palette knife, tipped it on the page then sprayed with water. I used a paintbrush and lots of water to move the colour around the page to where I wanted it in a rectangle shape.


Once it was dry I used Fire Engine Colour Paste through a stencil in random spots around the page. Then once that had dried I used another stencil this time with Stormy Weather Colour Paste.


I then painted my chipboard pieces with Black Heavy Gesso.


Once they were dry I heat embossed some key pieces with Dusty Charcoal and Fire Engine Colour Embossing Powders.


I then added some stamping to my background for some depth. I also added some splatters of Road Base Colour Spray by taking the nozzle out of the bottle and flicking the straw onto the page.


I then added a paper stack to frame my photo, and finished off with some words and quotes.  I didn't want too many embellishments on my layout as I wanted 
the background as the real hero of the project.

Here is another look at the layout, and some close ups









Thanks for looking, 

Rachel xx
