"Life loves the passionate", by Amanda H

Hi Colour Blast fans!

Today is my day to share! When I was creating this page of my friend Lisa and I, I stuck with a neutral colour scheme, but with pops of orange/red from the Colour Artist Ink! My favourite thing about this page is the title sticker -"Life loves the passionate" - just perfect for Lisa and I and I was stoked to finish my page with it.

Here is a sneak peek... then keep reading for the details.

Firstly I used White Heavy Gesso through a Stencil Girl stencil, straight onto some neutral music note paper.

Then I sprinkled and shook Colour Embossing Powder in Leather around a section of the gesso. I left the gesso to dry.

I then heat set the Embossing powder with my heat gun. I love the white gesso, then shiny embossed areas as well as the speckled areas where the embossing powder had settled.

Deciding to drop in a bit more colour, I went to my Colour Artist Inks in Sunset. I painted this with a wet brush directly onto the paper. I brushed between the stencils areas.

I planned on a few elements on my page, and decide to give them the Colour Blast treatment. I painted both the Charms Creations Music paper heart and the stem of white flowers with the same Colour Artist Ink in Sunset.

 To finish the page I added some splatters (always good to cover the photo and areas where you don't want splatters!). I added splatters in both Colour Artist Inks in Sunset as well as Colour Shimmer Spray in Leather.

With some layers behind the photo and a few extra bits added along the bottom of my photo, the page is done!

In this close up you can see how well Colour Blast products can colour embellishments.

This gesso and embossing powder trick is one of my favourite techniques to create interesting backgrounds. Hope you give it a try!

Thanks for looking.
