I can't believe I made this! - by Fiona Hughes

Hi my fellow crafters. I'm here with you all again to share this layout of my eldest, Georgia. This pic was on her Year 12 Formal. She looked so beautiful, I couldn't help thinking, "I can't believe I made this"....... How did that happen.....????


Anyways, I started with some heavy gauge cardstock, spritzed with water, (in a diamond shape), and also some Colour Shimmer Spray in Deep Water & Stormy Weather. I moved the colour with some more water and a watercolour brush, until I was happy to leave it alone to dry. 
After the background was dry, I added some flicks of Stormy Weather Colour Shimmer Spray, by unscrewing the spray nozzle and simply  tapping the tubing part and allowing the solution to splatter....and again allowed to dry naturally.


One of my embellishments was this piece of plain white, medical gauze. I sprayed it with  Colour Shimmer Sprays- Stormy Weather & Steel, setting it aside to dry.... I admit, I did give it a little attention with the heat tool to finish off! Lol.


Ok, let's look to the background again.
 I took a damask-type stencil, a palette knife and my favourite Colour Paste- Steel. I worked  the paste through the stencil, making sure it was over the diamond shape of the dried Colour Shimmer Sprays.



I love the crisp pattern over the randomness of the background colour.


I then, began to put it all together. 
I matted the black & white photo on some black tissue paper. and gathered all the other embellishments- Flowers, die cuts, flair button, black cotton & my coloured gauze. 



2 clusters of these subtle embellies,  some of which i puffy mounted, was just enough, to compliment and highlight my beautiful girl.


With my title down the right of the photo, I am done.
I love working with these great quality pastes, mists and  other coloured yumminess. I hope it shows in my pages.
Thanks for looking my friends. Have a great day.

Bye for now, 

Fi. x x x
