Sweet by Fiona Hughes

Hi Colourblast lovers, I want to share with you this simple, bright layout of one of my favourite things..... My Frangipani Tree.
This year it has been just so pretty, so I thought I'd make a background using the Colour Shimmer Dusts in Lollipop & Sunflower, to mimic the colours of the flower.
I used watercolour paper for this layout as I knew I would be using a whole lot of water.
I spritzed the page with water, in a diamond shape.
Then sprinkled the dusts over  the page using the tip of a small palette knife, and spritzed again to activate the magic. So pretty.
I dried this with a heat tool. Such beautiful shimmery goodness.
But I wanted MORE.... so I used the Colour Shimmer Spray - Bling, to lightly spray over the top.
Once that had dried I wanted to add more texture... what is my go to..? I hear you ask.... of course it is the Colour Pastes and a stencil.
This time I chose the Colour Paste - Snow White and put it roughly through this favourite heart stencil of mine....

I really love how the Snow White Colour Paste picked up the Bling shimmer from underneath.
So not much else to this layout. I backed my picture with tissue paper and used a strip of punchinella, mounted my picture on cardboard to raise it up a little, added my title, some vellum butterflies and some glass droplets to mimic the raindrops on the bloom.

So that's all from me today folks. Have a wonderful day.

Cheers, Fi.
