Playing with colour by Tina Connolly

Hi everyone!
Had lots of fun creating this.  It started out as a plain sheet of white cardstock.  Would you like to know how I did it?

Start by positioning your photos and adhere a few pieces of white cardstock.  Put photos aside and lay a stencil over your page.  Apply texture paste with a palette knife and then while still wet, spread Colour Paste in Bling, Tangerine Dream, and Fire Engine (i found doing this part with your fingers allowed greater control and I was able to create a nice fading effect in places)

Once dry spray Shimmer Mists were sprayed and dripped.  Chipboard pieces were either sprayed or embossed, and the Kutalicious acetate 'fence' was heat embossed (love that these products can be used on so many different bases).  Something else to note is that you get different effects, dependent on the colour of the item you are embossing, how cool is that???

 Lots of layered piece for interest, I love the contrast between the subtlety of the Shimmer Spray with the intense colour and shine of the Colour Pastes.  

I added a bit of stamping using Stazon, don't you love how it turned out? 

Happy scrapping,



  1. I love this! May I ask what stencil you used?
