"STRONG" by Anita Enright

Hi Everyone
With this being my last post for December I thought it is the perfect time to wish each and every Colour Blast 'fan' a very festive Christmas and a safe start to 2019.
I hope you get to spend time with those near and dear to you all.
Now I love my Colour Blast products as much as you and with the large number of products in my collection I have been trying to use different colours on each of my posts.
Today I have used two of my all time favourite Colour Paste in Sienna and Leather. They are both extremely striking on the white background.  
So after using a fun filter from Snapchat I ended up with the perfect photo for my layout. It's nice to play around once in a while.
 After preparing my cardstock background with some Heavy White Gesso, using a baby wipe and two coordinating Colour Artist Inks in Rust and Cider I smooshed the Rust across the background and once dried added Cider.

I did this a couple of times to get the depth and colours that I wanted to tie in with the photo.
Next, using my metal spatula I stroked some of the Colour Paste
in Sienna and Leather down my page.  I wanted a very uneven look on the page.

Using the amazing Heavy White Gesso
I added more texture with a stencil ensuring some of the stencilling went over the Colour Paste

After selecting my chosen embellishments I decided I wanted to keep the vast majority of them white.  I found a heap of wood veneer flowers in my stash.  I 'attacked' them with my sponge and Heavy White Gesso trying to get a a bit of a stippled and roughish look to them.

I didn't quite the look I wanted, so I worked with a paint brush and the gesso and ended up happy with the final result.
  Using the Colour Shimmer Brush Marker in Clear I added a slight bling to the wood flowers.  It ended up ever so subtle but took the matte affect off them. I did up adding some copper glitter to two of the flowers that you can see in the close up photos below.

 I added by bling title, a couple of mulberry paper flowers and a few sticker phrases from Flutterby Designs and a cute sequin bow from D-lish Scraps and the layout was complete.

Thanks for stopping by.

Again, have a safe and relaxing Christmas break.
