Too Glam to Give a Damn by Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! Sue Plumb here today to share my latest Colour Blast project with you. I have been lucky enough to attend two separate scrapbooking retreats in the past month and a half (still not sure how I got that past hubby! haha); which has meant lots of scrappy time for me.
Today I am sharing a project I actually created whilst on retreat, featuring a fun Snap Chat photo of my daughter and I together.


My colour palette for this page was guided by the colours in the photo, so I started by creating my background using some Duke Colour Shimmer Dust, which I mixed with a little water and brushed onto my cardstock.


As part of our goody bag we received at retreat, we were given the "too glam to give a damn" cut file cut from white cardstock; which I decided to use as my layout title. I painted it using a small brush and the Colour Shimmer Dust left over from my background.


The next step on my background was to apply some contrast, so I used a star stencil from Flutterby Designs to apply some Blush Colour Paste to random areas of my page. I also used my palette knife to add a few random "smears" of colour, then set it aside to dry.


The final step in my background process was to apply some extra splatters of colour, so I used Colour Shimmer Sprays (BlushStormy Weather and Bling) and flicked them around the page.


Once all my mediums were dry, I constructed the remainder of my page. I started by adding a paper doily to the focal area of my page to act as my photo mat and topped it with some frayed gauze.


I then backed my title piece with a project life card and a small piece of scalloped glitter card.


I then mounted my photo and title piece on some scrap cardboard to raise them up, and tucked an extra piece of the scalloped card and some messy pink thread in behind each of them.


Next, I added a Charms Creations handmade heart embellishment, which I topped with more pink thread and a flair button from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.


To finish off my page, I added a few punched glitter butterflies; some sequins and stamped phrases and I was done! (Pages like this are ideal for those who are on a scrapping budget, as there were very few additional materials used beyond the mediums.)


Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks with another Colour Blast project for you. Until then, happy scrapping!
