My share is inspired by the January Colour Blast Challenge.

This month we have a sketch to inspire you.
I have inverted the sketch and rotated it so that I can see how it looks on the black background.
To play along - all you need to do is create a page inspired by the sketch and upload it to the album ...
You could win Colour Blast products, just for playing along.
The first thing I did was collect a few items I thought would make a good page.
With my black background I sprayed Colour Shimmer Spray Deep Water straight onto the cardstock.
I then used the same spray to add some background splatter.
I felt like the background still needed something ... so I dug out one of my favourite stencils and added some Colour Paste in Steel.
I like to allow my backgrounds to dry naturally, so once dry,
apply white Heavy Gesso around the outside to make a frame.
For me I like to apply this part pretty rough and messy - I think it adds to the final layout.
I've then added some water to the white gesso and used a fan type brush to add some background splatters.
Final steps to complete the page are the photo cluster and embellishing.
Don't you just love how the colour shimmer spray looks on black???
