Breathtaking Landscape by Danielle Vertigan

We have been lucky enough to enjoy some amazing landscapes in this beautiful country of ours.

My family and I headed up north through Central Australia I know I have shared the motorbike side with you but Know its time to share the sights!!!
Breathtaking is the only word I have to describe our experience.

Standley Chasm is featured in our image here and I really felt that
Tangerine Dream was the perfect colour to feature and really pull out the rich colour in these mesmerising cliff faces.

So first up I started with a patterned paper.
Not usually my style but I loved the base pattern.
I chose the Just Blue  Colour Paste
which I smeared on using my applicator.

I then spritzed some areas around the edge of my Colour Paste using
Tangerine Dream  Colour Shimmer Spray
This was followed with some splatter and dabbing using the stalk.

I allowed for dry time, then selected a stencil
Tangerine Dream  Colour Paste

I applied this through the centre of my layout framing the inner section of my Colour Paste lapping slightly at the bottom.

Its now time to add some pools of colour to create my drips.
My first layer was done using
Sapphire  Colour Spray

and then to add to the pools I used
Just Blue Colour  Shimmer Spray

I lifted this slightly to create the drips and when satisfied I repeated this on the opposite side.
Followed by a top up of Tangerine Dream dabs using my stalk.

Once dry I placed my photo over my layout and marked it with a pencil to use as my guide.
I smeared a final layer of Tangerine Dream Colour Paste
This is being set as my photo matt and layered thinly
over my stencilling so the
pattern comes through to add another texture

To finish the layout I matted with a stack of patterned papers a few embellishments where used but I was mindful of keeping this one simple.
A bit of details where added using a black gel pen and a few touches of stamping finished it off.

A real favourite is how the sprays has defined the stencilling

The drips make there own statement reaching out from
under the photo.
What a match for my sons hat!

The shimmer as always speaks for itself.

For all your gorgeous Colour Blast Goodies head to
Till next time
 Happy Scrapping.....
