"So glam", by Amanda H

Hello to our Colour Blast fans!

It is not too late to have a go at our January challenge over at Colour Blast Creative Corner.
Today I am sharing my page inspired by it!


Here is the challenge - what an awesome sketch and a great idea to try a black background! 

No automatic alt text available.

Here is how I created my page:

First, I mixed some White Heavy Gesso with Colour Artist Ink (in Slipper).


Next, using a wide bristle brush, I brushed some of the paint mix onto the black background.

Once dry, I droppered some more of the Colour Artist Ink (in Slipper) onto the painted surface.


I painted the Artist Ink around the surface, allowing for variations in colour and brightness.

Once dry, I used some Colour Paste (in Just Blue) through a stencil.

I planned to layer some tissue paper behind the photo, but the pink colour of the tissue paper wasn't quite right. So I painted the tissue paper with Colour Artist Ink (in Slipper).
I inked a wood veneer chevron before heat embossing with Colour Embossing Powder (in Punch).
 
Next I assembled my page with layers of papers, photos, doodling of white pen and embellishments. Once everything was stuck down, I decided I needed some splatters.
For white splatters, I added some water to White Heavy Gesso.
And then splattered the white on the page (after covering the photo).

 Lastly, I grabbed my Colour Shimmer Spray (in Just Blue) to do some splatters. I undid the lid and made splatters from the end of the spray wand.

 Here is my final page:

And here are some close ups: 

Lovely layers of Gesso, inks, paste and splatters....

 Thanks for looking today, please join our challenge this month!
