Katy you're a Firework!


Hi Bee Arters ... Today I am highlighting the new FIREWORKS collection designed by Queenie Y @ Silluart Studios  and being released tomorrow. 

For your opportunity to grab this and other upcoming collections, subscribe to the Bee Arty kits today ...  Join kit club 

This collection provides great opportunities to celebrate special occasions in a fun and very cute way.  As an art journaler and mixed media artist I looked at this collection with a different lens - Firework was a very successful song by Katy Perry and is a great addition as 'dance party music' so I created a journal page with the chorus lyrics as a link to the collection.  Of course a photo could be used to create a celebration layout.  Enjoy the process and hope you have lots of fun with this collection.

Textured background –

a) Lay out three small amounts of texture paste out onto a palette.  Using a Craft Powder Spoon

small amounts of Colourblast Shimmer dust – passion, lollipop, amber to the paste, mix thoroughly.

b)  Carefully spread the mixes through the Fireworks A4 stencils creating a rainbow effect e.g. begin with passion mix, then lollipop mix in middle with amber at the end of the spray/stars. I added the paste across the top of the page. Allow to dry.


c)     Once dry, brush a small amount of Modge Podge dimensional magic over the textured stencilled areas to create some shine to the fireworks.

d)     Add Music A6 stencil to the remaining parts of the cardstock using Gesso, a makeup sponge or dauber  by lightly pouncing the gesso through the stencil. Dry off.

e) Add some fire burst ‘ghost’ stamping around the sheet using the Uppercase stamp set and black ink.

Wording and song lyrics

a)     Carefully add the word F I R E W O R K to the page using Uppercase stamp set and Archival Ink Pad Jet Black.  Add detail colour to the stamping using blue, orange, violet, pink (Life of colour pens or paint pens). 

b)    Write the Chorus lyrics of the song to the page (type or write onto cardstock if preferred).  Add a loose (double border around the text using black paint pen, then colour using the same colours as before).


Focus Image/Photo -

a)     Cut out the rocket tag from Showtime Tag Sheet, add an image/photo cut to size to fit inside the white area of the tag.  Cut out three ‘rockets’ from the Bunting (rockets).  Then die-cut the Party metal die and the party hat from the Fireworks Cardstock – Big hugs paper (back - quad sheets) and the words dance party music from the  Colourful word sheet.

b)     Mount the photo tag to the bottom of the page using thick mounting tape, then adhere the rockets, party hat and bunting to the page.  Add the words sentiment to the image also.

c)     Add a border to the cardstock sheet using the violet and black paint pens.

Thanks for stopping by and look forward to creating again for you soon.

Cheers from Linda
