Magic with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!!

It's Belinda here with you today to share my latest layout featuring lots of amazing Colour Blast products inspired by the February Sketch Challenge.

Here's a peek at the challenge:


To start this layout, I first cropped a sheet of the awesome Bee Arty Heavy Weight White Cardstock and mounted on a sheet of patterned paper from the fabulous Untangle Collection. I then applied the Stardust Stencil with Snow White Colour Paste using a palette knife.

Once the Colour Paste was dry, I spritzed the page with water and dropped in Colour Artist Inks. I first started with the Citrus. I dropped the colour into the wet areas, spritzed with more water, pushed it around with my fingertip, blotted with a scrunched up paper towel and then dried off with a heat gun. I repeated this process with both the Oasis and Slipper inks until I was happy with the coverage.

Next, I added some stamping. I used the Bokeh Stamp Set with Aquamarine Archival Ink. I used the text stamp from the set without an acrylic block so I could achieve a more random stamping style.

I added some messy thread across my page and then added a layered stack of matching patterned papers from the Untangle collection. I inked the edges of the paper with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I added my photo using 3D foam and then the Postage Stamp Die Cut on top. I slipped in the Honeycomb Die Cut on either side of the paper stack too.

Next I stamped a whole bunch of leaves from the Floral Delights 1 Clear Stamp Set and fussy cut each one. I also stamped some stars and the filmstrips from the Moments In Time Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival Ink. I fussy cut some flowers from the Bloom patterned paper. I painted these flowers using the same Colour Artist Inks as the background.

Finally I assembled the layout using all of the fussy cut elements as well as the title and the quote cut from the Inspirations patterned paper.

I used the smallest star stamp from the Moments In Time Stamp Set to add a cute sprinkling of stars over the layout too.

Colour Blast products used:
- Citrus
- Oasis
- Slipper

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge this month using some awesome Bee Arty products.
