Hello everyone. Welcome back to the Colour Blast Blog.
I'm here again to share a page I've done. Once again I set myself a goal to do something I don't normally do. Green & yellow are colours I don't normally use so that was my challenge (I didn't do too well on the yellow but I tried).
To begin my page I coated my cardstock in Heavy White Gesso
Once dry I sprayed my page with water (where I wanted colour), then sprinkled some Paris Colour Shimmer Dust then sprayed some more water spreading the colour around.
I continued to add more Colour Shimmer Dust & sprayed it around drying with my heat gun in between layers.
For my final layer I used the plastic technique. I mixed up a stronger shade of Paris Colour Shimmer Dust on a piece of acetate, then splattered it on my page adding another layer.
I added some Tangareen Dream Colour Paste through a stencil.
If you do what I did & get side tracked & forget to clean your stencil do not fear...add some water into a container. Add a few squirts of liquid soap & swish around. Soak your stencil for a few hours then I use an old baby bottle brush & a nappy wipe to clean my stencil. And good as new.
I used my finger to spread Heavy White Gesso around my photo.
I layered a few coloured papers to back my photo.
Time to colour my flowers.
I sprayed some Sapphire Colour Spray onto my craft mat. I then sprayed some water, wetting my brush I added some Sapphire to my water mix. Colouring my flowers from the inside I added some more Sapphire to my water mix as I went darkening the shade to the edges.
I then sprayed some Snow White Colour Shimmer Spray onto my craft mat & painted the edges of my flower.
I mixed up some Lollipop Colour Shimmer Dust. Again I added small amounts to water as I went colouring from the inside.
I sprayed a large flower with Saffron colour Spray. Then sprayed a light coating of Snow White Colour Shimmer Spray.
My orange flower I coloured with Amber Colour Shimmer Dust.
For my purple flower I sprayed Indigo Colour Spray then a spritz with Snow White Shimmer Spray.
These are my finished flowers (all started as white flowers)
My chipboard title I gave a good ink with white ink then spread Lipstick Colour Embossing Powder onto the white. I didn't get an even coverage but I actually liked the effect.
My tiny chipboard letters I painted in Heavy Black Gesso.
My metal leaves I embossed with Apple Of My Eye Colour Embossing Powder.
After sticking everything down I covered my photo and used a mix of Heavy Black Gesso & water to make a good splashing black. After some splatters I was done.
A couple of close ups to try to capture the colour & shimmer.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
See you next time.
