Hey Hey Everyone, Anita with you today on the blog.
I have to say that I love how there are so many different colours available across the ranges of Colour Blast products. I am also having fun mixing and matching them and today I have chosen Steel and Singing the Blues.
My chosen products for this layout were the Colour Paste, Colour Shimmer Spray and Colour Embossing Powder.
I coated my chipboard piece with Heavy White Gesso prior to covering it with the Colour Embossing Powder in Singing the Blues. It made the colour pop due to having the white base behind the embossing powder.
The base paper for my layout was a very simple and subtle grey patterned paper. My chosen stencil had a similar pattern the wall that was behind Brian and I in the photo. The were really funky grey shimmery glass tiles and even though they are a little hard to see I wanted to see if I could bring them into the layout somewhere.
I think it worked really well using the Colour Paste in Steel.
Once the Colour Paste was dry I then added some 'splats' and sprayed the entire page with the Colour Shimmer Spray in Singing the Blues. The shimmer is just so pretty.
For those of us that are lucky enough to have some of the Colour Shimmer Cubes in their stash, after adding water to the cube, I used a dauber to add colour through another different stencil to add more texture to the background. The same results can be used using the Colour Shimmer Sprays or Colour Sprays if you wanted to tone down the shimmer on your creations.
My chosen ephemera and a few other pieces came from one of my 'Just Add Paper' monthly kits from D-lish Scraps. On the two butterfly, heart and flower ephemera pieces I used the Colour Shimmer Brush Marker in Clear to add even more shimmer to my page. I then used the marker in Silver to colour up two white flowers as I didn't have any grey flowers and thought this was a great way to add colour.
My large white flower was too stark on the page as it was so I added some of the Colour Paste in Singing the Blues and Steel.
Along with the D-lish Scraps kit pieces I added another gorgeous embellishment set the X and O from Charms Creations.
Below are a couple of close-ups of my finished layout and also up close of the pretty shimmers of the Colour Blast products.
