Glitz & Glam by Suzy Loudon

A big Hello to everyone. This week I've gone back to the 1920's after a wonderful party. It was a bit of a challenge to scrap but I hope I've done my photo justice.


To begin with I thought my paper was a bit too busy in the centre so spread White Heavy Gesso randomly with my pallet knife.


I cut myself some lace the gave it a spray with Love Colour Spray. I dried it with my heatgun (be careful not to get too close & melt it). On drying it went a much lighter colour so I kept repeating the process, focusing more on the bottom. I must have done this about 6 or 7 times before I was happy. When I was assembling my page I decided I needed to extend my lace to I did the same process with another section.


I used a chandelier stencil with Steel Colour Paste. 


I coated some chipboard with Steel Colour Embossing Powder.


After heat setting the Steel I used a sponge to dab my embossing dauer to add a very small amount onto my chipboard. I then used Fire Engine Colour Embossing Powder on the small sections. I heat set it then repeated the process using Bling Colour Embossing Powder.


I tried to get a photo picking up the Fire Engine & Bling highlights but didn't quite capture it. You can see it better in close-ups later.


I sprayed some Love Colour Spray on some flowers. A little trick - if you don't want to colour your flower stems cover them in some washie tape before spraying.


I then sprayed a flower in Roadbase Colour Spray...but didn't move my red flower completely out of the way so it got flecks of Roadbase all over it.


I sprayed some more flowers with Steel Shimmer Spray


 I added some feathers & some little embellishments to finish my page.
You can see in this photo the depth of the lace that I reached, as well as some of the colour accents on the Steel chipboard.

Some of the top lighter lace that was covered by the photo I cut off & lifted up. You can see the different shade to the bottom piece.


Thanks for spending the time to enable me to share my page 
See you next time.

XXX Suzy
