Vision by Michelle Henderson

Hi Colour Blast fans!

I had fun making this really quick Art Journal page, using lots of Colour Blast Australia products...I find that when I get in a rut with scrapbooking, this always fires things up again 😀

Here's a sneaky wee pic

I had just received some awesome Visible Image stamps and stencils, and I couldn't wait to use them..so I started this page with one of the stencils, along with a couple of other ones I've had for a while.

I had already pre-gessoed my journal (which is an old reference book), and used the Tim Holtz stencils along with modelling paste around the edges of my page.

Once the paste was dry, I sprayed it with water, then started dropping little bits of Colour Shimmer Dust in Sunflower, Paris, Passion, Lush, Peacock, and Cobalt. It needed a little more water sprayed and I moved the page around to make it flow. My fave patch is where the Sunflower was next to Passion 😍

Once that part was dry, I used the Visible Image stencil and Colour Paste in Dusty Charcoal on the left hand page, then wiped it, flipped it and re-did it on the right hand page.

I was almost tempted to leave it at this...

But then I got out my White Heavy Gesso and double-coated inside the eyes.

And then I used Colour Artist Ink in Calypso and Marine for the irises.

I added some stamping, and some Shimmer Cube in Bling - but that wasn't enough, so I drybrushed some Colour Paste in Bling over the highlights too - look at that sparkle!!



Finally I added a quote from Pinterest that I love, and here's the finished page 😃

Thanks for visiting - I hope I've inspired you to go have a play 😀
