Glad to be back on the blog with a page to share! I created this during our Bee Arty retreat in October, using some special retreat goodies. I love how the colours turned out, check out how I did it with some step by steps below.
I started with a sheet of the Bee Arty white cardstock - smooth and thick and always the best way to start when you want to create your own background.
I began with the Fiona P designed Foliage stencil and I used some washi tape to mask off the designs I wanted to use on my page.
Next I mixed up my own paste. I used some modelling paste, with Mica Powders.
I combined Bling and Olive Grove Mica Powders, which combined to create the awesome shiny mustard colour (which matched my daughters bikini in the photo so perfectly). I used this through the Foliage stencil to create the large leaves and stems on the page.
Next I stenciled some dots using Matte Gel medium, through the That Way stencil. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled the dots with Colour Embossing Powder - in the Chocolate Sparkle colour.
Before assembling my page, I mixed some Bling Mica Powder with some water, to wash some gold to the background and add some gold splatters to the page.
Here is my final page:
We had some special bees (designed by Sue Smyth) in our retreat pack, so I had to fussy cut these and use them to finish the page. Along with some stickers, a doily behind the photo and a few little hearts.
Thanks for looking today!
