"ART makes everything AWESOME" by Charmane Koch

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you a layout created by the leftover embossing powders from the previous layout, that I STILL haven't shared because although I DID finish it, I was too late to take a photo of it before it got to dull and dark here in Wintery South Australia!

What I have done is using Snow White Colour Paste I have randomly stencilled using a palette knife and the Loops & Lines Stencil from the Untangle Range, then with the excess mixed Embossing Powders which were the colours Blueberry Shine, Mulberry sparkle, Sky Light & Key Lime... It was really an experimental thing - but that's the joy of creating isn't it? Playing with colours is just so much FUN!

I heat gunned the embossing powders, and as you can see its not "perfect" but that is the way I like it!

I also had another play using the Mini Misters - I added Water and then two little scoops using the cute Craft Powder Spoon and the Lush, Peacock, Lollipop & Passion Shimmer Dusts - and randomly sprayed a 12x12 White 350gsm Cardstock paper - in hindsight I should have gesso'd first! as it did bend a little!

Once dried I cut the centre out, as I wanted to use the outer as the base for my main layout, but didn't want to waste the middle...

I have then stuck down the photo onto the sprayed Cardstock and created a matte to back the photo. This just adds another layer. I have used mounted double sided tape to left it from the background paper, which allowed me to tuck the Charms Heart underneath.

I had a Die Cut Cog Globe that I thought was perfect for the layout - as I wanted the idea of my daughter Ryarne unleashing her creative artistic side - with the "Ideas" Globe... I decided to use Dusty Charcoal Embossing Powder to colour it...

To finish the layout I trimmed the edges and then distressed it, used double sided tape to stick the top cardstock to the sprayed cardstock. I have added a couple heart & bow embellishments and the cool Arty transparencies too.

I really love how it turned out - a fun photo & so much fun experimenting too!

Hope you like it as much as I do!

Thanks for popping by!
