Made With Love by Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty Fans!

It's Belinda here today to share my latest layout for Bee Arty inspired by the May Mood Board and featuring lots of gorgeous Colour Blast product.

Here's a reminder of the gorgeous inspiration for this month:

For this layout I worked with the stunning Grateful Heart collection. I cropped a sheet of the Hope patterned paper to size and mounted on the fabulous white cardstock for extra sturdiness.

I mixed up a concoction of Snow White Colour Blast Paste, Peacock Colour Shimmer Dust and Black Heavy Gesso for the darkest colour in the mood board and added to the page using the Rhythm A5 Stencil. I used a soft wet paintbrush and a water spray bottle to manipulate the product on the page letting it drip down the page and moving it around until I was happy with the coverage.

I diluted down the mix with some water and flicked it over the page too with the soft paintbrush.

Next I added some messy thread to my page and some pretty flowers that I coloured and fussy cut from the Together patterned paper. To colour the fussy cut image I used Colour Sprays in Lagoon, Saffron and Sunset. I mixed the Saffron and Sunset to achieve the pretty peach colour and diluted with a little water.

Once dry, I added the fussy cut image to the page.

Next I decided I needed a little more detail in the background so I used some of the leftover mix from the background stencilling, diluted it with water and painted it onto the Bokeh Stamp before stamping on my page. I love the messy watercolour effect this gives.

I painted a birdcage, page tabs and cute mason jars from the Family and Gathers patterned papers with the same colours as the main floral image and fussy cut those too. I sprayed an extra piece of white cardstock with the Saffron Colour Spray, let dry completely and then die cut the small die from the Grungy Filmstrip Die Set.

I added all of these pieces to my layout along with some more pieces fussy cut from the patterned papers including my title and quote. To finish I added some enamel dots from my stash.
