Treasured Memories with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!!

It's Belinda here with you today to share my latest project for Bee Arty featuring the stunning Forever My Always Collection designed by the super talented Fiona Paltridge.

I started my layout by cropping a sheet of the Heart Beat patterned paper and mounting it on a sheet of the amazing Bee Arty Heavy Weight White Cardstock.

I then mixed up a concoction of approx. 20 drops of Marine Colour Artist Ink + a dash of Indigo Colour Spray + a tiny amount of Velvet Colour Shimmer Dust + a couple of sprays of water in a Colour Blast Mini Mister.

I sprayed my 'potion' very liberally on my page and also spritzed with a bit more water to create quite a puddle of lovely colour. I used a soft wet paintbrush to pick up some of the ink on my page and flick it over the background to create interesting little droplets of colour.

In fact there was way too much colour on my page still so I dipped a die cut Postage Stamp frame in the colour as well as a Butterfly Effect butterfly. I still had too much colour so I pressed a page of an art journal I keep for just such an occasion into the ink too.

I dried the page with a heat gun and then used a palette knife to swipe some Snow White Colour Paste over the Stardust A5 Stencil. Once that was dry, I added some stamping using Jet Black Archival Ink and the Geo Grunge Stamp.

Here is my completed layout:

'Treasured Memories'

I cropped some papers from the Forever My Always collection and stacked them under my photo. I also fussy cut some flowers and leaves from the collection patterned papers and added those to the layout along with my paper stack and photo.

I added the gorgeous Diamond Die Cut under all of the flowers and the photo  as well as the words cut from the patterned papers. To finish I added a chipboard word from my stash.

Here's what I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
