"Dance Off" by Sue Plumb

Hi everyone!
Sue Plumb here to share my latest Colour Blast design team project with you. Today I have a mixed media scrapbook page featuring Colour Shimmer Dust, Colour Paste and Colour Artist Ink. I documented some fun snaps of my boys in a "dance off" at a party one night. To go with the theme of my photos, I gave my page a grungy urban style.

I started my page by mixing up some 'Duke' Colour Shimmer Dust with a little water; then brushed it across my cardstock using a wide brush. I then took a small brush and used it to splatter some of the excess around the page before drying it off with a heat gun.

I then added some 'Stormy Weather' Colour Paste roughly (so that it showed some "chunky" texture) through a brick stencil. I applied the paste to three areas of my page (as I tend to follow the visual triangle rule of design); before drying it off.

Whilst the paste was drying, I used some Uniquely Creative metal dies to cut 3 lightbulb shapes from cardstock. I then used 'Cranberry' Colour Artist Ink and a thin brush to colour them (I gave them 2 coats for extra vibrancy); before using he excess ink on the brush to add a few splatters around the page.

I then began constructing my page. I created a small mat for my photo strip using some music paper; a felt heart doily; and some frayed gauze; before mounting my photos on top. (I chose a photo strip collage for my pics as they had been taken late at night on my phone and were not the best quality.)

I added two of the lightbulb shapes alongside my photo strip.

I then added the third lightbulb above my photos, along with a handmade arrow embellishment from Charms Creations.

For my page title, I used some Jillibean Soup alpha stickers, which I outlined with a felt pen to help them stand out more from the background. I also added some stamped phrases around my page using some stamps from Uniquely Creative.

To finish off my layout, I added my handwritten journalling; stamped the date; and scattered some sequins around my page.

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by so I could share this with you. I hope I have inspired you to get stuck into your Colour Blast products - perhaps pick up something you haven't used in a while, or try that new one you bought but haven't used yet? Whatever you do, have fun!
Until next time, happy scrapping!
