Right Now by Kristy Abela

Hi friends, here's a new inspiration for you using Colour Blast Australia products. This photo was taken At Scenic World - Katoomba. We took all the boys on an adventure. Shortly after this it poured and we all got soaked!!
 Here are some closer looks...



 To create this layout I have a process by where I create my focal point first. For this one I found some papers and created a matt.


 I found some Fab Dusty Attic Chipboard from my new Design Team kit and added some crackle paste. While it was still wet I added Colour Artist Ink in Walnut to colour the paste, not to sit on top of it. I then added a touch of Art Alchemy wax to highlight the crackle.


 Using Colour Paste in Leather I used a stencil to create some embellishments. I deliberately over heated the paste to get a lovely texture on the moths. I also added some Colour Embossing Powder in Stormy Sky to the title. When I layed it out I decided that it was too dark and them put a layer of Sunshine on instead. The black base gave the Colour Embossing Powder a complete golden shimmer.


 Once I was comfortable with where my embellishments and focal point were going to go I marked out in pencil and removed them to work on my background. For this process I coloured some Colour Blast Heavy Gesso White with Colour Artist Ink, Barley and used my pallet knife to apply. Once I had enough I added Colour Artist Ink in Lime to the remaining mixture to vary the shade and add a another layer. Once this was dry I added some splatters with Colour Artist Ink - Walnut... Why not - It was still sitting there.

 At that point I realised I had a Grungy effect to the layout now and then added some stamping with Archival Ink to add to that feel. I stuck down the Picture and embellishments and then used my Colour Shimmer Brush Marker to add a bit of sparkle to my flowers.
Hope you enjoyed the process... Check into Colour Blast Creative Corner and see what the other girls are up too...  

Ciao for Now
