Anzac Day 2017 - by Fiona Hughes

Hi crafters, Fi here again, for the final time, to share my layout.
One of my earliest efforts at using the Colour Mica Powder- Olive, along side Colour Shimmer Sprays - Leather & Stormy Weather.
I have held onto this page to post it at the appropriate time, so here it is, leading up to one of our Nation's most significant days of Remembrance.

I mixed a tiny amount of the Olive Mica powder with water, making a slurry of sorts. Using fully loaded watercolour brush I splattered & smooshed it in a triangular area to the left of my heavy gauge Marshmallow Cardstock. 
I then decanted a small amount of the Shimmer sprays and did the same thing, to make the following effect.

I allowed it to dry before adding a few splatters of Stormy Weather.

I gathered some aged & vintage looking patterned papers, fussy cut some poppies from photographs, a  themed flair button, tag, washi tape & chipboard tiny words. 
Layering & clustering until I was happy with the overall placement, before sticking it all down.

Take a look, and remember our fallen on Anzac Day.

Well that's all from me.

Fi. x x
