Dream Big by Tracey Campbell

 Hello everyone. Thanks for popping in and seeing what I have for inspiration for you today.
It is a bit of colour blocking making a fun and bright background with the Colour Artist Inks.
It is a simple technique that can create in interesting look as the colours blend and bleed together. First up I picked three different colours from the Colour Artist Inks; I used Calypso, Cider and Slipper and painted (using a thick paintbrush) blocks of colour randomly down the side of some cardstock.
At first I tried not to let the colours touch too much but as I kept painted and they started to bleed together I like how they created extra colour - see the colours mixing in the photo below.
 After I finished painted the blocks of colour I flicked the extra ink out of the brush on the right hand side of the cardstock. At this stage I decide that I had too many white spaces in the colour blocking so I added some more Colour Artist Ink in Lime.

 Now I had a background with a lot of colour and movement but felt that it wasn't linked together, so I flicked some Soot Colour Artist Ink over the top of the other splatters and also across the colour blocking and felt better about it.
Using the Soot Artist Ink I applied two layers of black over a cardstock die cut title. I really love the versatility of the Artist Inks, one layer of the Soot Artist ink on the Cardstock is an awesome shade of dark grey add another and it is a really intense black.   
Next I used a few different coloured pieces of patterned paper and matted my photo and stuck the title down with some glue.
To finish off the layout I loaded my fountain pen with some of the Soot Artist Ink and wrote straight onto the cardstock.
 Here is the finished layout - a bright and bold page, using the wonderful Colour Blast Artist Inks. If you have not had a go playing with theses beauties yet ask your local scrapbooking store to get some in of head to the Colour Blast Website and order them for yourself. They truly are so much fun.
Thanks for stopping in and I look forward to joining you again soon.
