"Friends Like You" by Sue Plumb


Hi everyone!
Sue Plumb here today to share my latest Colour Blast design team project with you. Today I have a mixed media scrapbook page created using the new Colour Artist Inks; Colour Paste; some dies from Uniquely Creative; and a photo of my friends and I taken at a fancy dress birthday party a few months ago.



I started my page by laying down some colour using the Cranberry Colour Artist Ink. I used an old medicine dropper to add some drops of ink to my cardstock, then spread the ink using a wide brush and rough strokes. 



Next, I added wanted to add some contrast and depth to my background so I applied some Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste randomly around my page using a palette knife.



I then added further interest to my page by splattering a small amount of Soot Colour Artist Ink using a small, stiff bristled brush. (I love the fluidity of this ink for making splatters!)



Next, it was time to prepare some embellishments. I drew inspiration from the girls' feather headbands, and decided to use some of the new December release dies from Uniquely Creative to create my own feathers. After cutting some out from white cardstock, I used my  Colour Artist Inks filled water brushes to colour them. I used two colours - Sunburnt and Slipper, and after the ink had dried I added some faux stitched detail using my Sharpie paint pen.



Next, it was time to construct my layout. I gathered together some papers, which I layered together to form my photo mat. On top of that I also added some frayed gauze for subtle texture before mounting my photo on top.



I used the die cut feathers to embellish around my photo, bending up some of the edges as I went to create extra dimension.



In addition to the feathers, I also used some sticky quote phrase stickers  and small heart stickers from Flutterby Designs which I placed around the page. For my title, I used a Project Life card, which I cut the words from.




Alongside my title, I added a handmade heart from Charms Creations, which I topped with some messy cotton thread and a flair button from Flutterby Designs.
I finished my page by adding some stamping and handwritten journaling.

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I hope that some of you have already got your hands on some new Colour Artist Inks from one of the Colour Blast stockists (you can find a stockist list HERE) The inks are so much fun to use and the team love to see them, so pleas make sure you share your creations with us.

I will be back in a couple of weeks time with another project to share. Until then, happy scrapping!
