Survivor by Danielle Vertigan

Good Morning Colour Blast Family
I've been on a bit of a road trip enjoying this vast country.
There are certainly some amazing landscapes to see in the Northern Territory.

Today I'm sharing with you the reason we were there.
The Finke Desert Race.

To get this layout started it was all about the colour.
Colour Shimmer Spray

I started with the Colour Shimmer Spray in Sunshine and poured it directly onto the layout.
Tilting the layout I spread it across the page and then used the stalk to drag my pools of colour
This was to create the drips.

I then repeated the same process using the Tangerine Dream.

You can see from the image below how the drips can be as much or as little as you like.

I continued this same process adding layers of colour and blending them together in areas.

To increase the intensity of colour I add the
Colour Spray in Sunset
I used the stalk as my applicator.

Some small drips also fell and where a nice addition
I left the extra colour to pool and not spread.

I set this to the side and allowed to dry naturally.
Every so often I went back to it tilting the page and spreading a little more colour.
Once it was dry I selected 2 stencil patterns to work with using the

I worked with Tangerine Dream first, once dry I layered my second stencil using Sunshine. Making sure to lap it with the
previous stencil.

Using Stazon Ink I stamped a pebble pattern around the photo area of my layout.

I embellished keeping it simple using the wire.
I formed a circle by wrapping it around a vase and then stapling it directly to my page.

The title has worked well here with the scrabble tiles.

My last step was to mark a track with the Start location, Fuel Stops and 1/2 way stopping point featured.

I think having something masculine can sometimes be tricky but pulling from the elements
can be a fabulous way to draw inspiration for your layout
Thanks for stopping by
till next time
