Hello again. Today I set myself a challenge. You see I have difficulty with "white space". So I set myself a goal to doing a layout with just that. Although I am happy with my finished page I still don't think I did the "white space" as to what I had in mind.
Here's a quick step by step as to how the page came about.
To begin with I lightly sprayed Sapphire Colour Spray, Just Blue & Steel Colour Shimmer Sprays though a stencil. Once I had covered the area I wanted I lifted the stencil up and dripped the spray sitting on the stencil onto the page making drip splatters
I then placed some Steel Colour Paste into a snaplock bag & cut off the tip making my own piping bag. I squeezed it out making squiggles on my page.
I did the same thing using Singin' The Blues Colour Paste, But this time I cut off a smaller amount off the corner of my piping bag to make a finer squiggle.
Here's a close-up of my prepared background. Tried to catch the shimmer but is so hard.
While waiting for my paste to dry I embossed my chipboard. Using my embossing dauber I only covered parts of my chipboard (rather than coating the entire piece) & used Just Blue Colour Embossing Powder. Then embossed the remaining chipboard in Singing The Blues Colour Embossing Powder. I added an extra coat to really blend the colours together.
I sprayed my die cut dream catcher with Steel Colour Shimmer Spray (very hard to see sorry)
I painted my little chipboard letters with Black Heavy Gesso
To colour my white flowers I mixed the smallest amount of Navy Colour Shimmer Dust with water dabbing onto my flower with a paint brush. For another flower I also used the smallest amount of Sapphire Colour Spray & mixed it with water to lighten. Another I sprayed in Just Blue Colour Shimmer Spray. I also used the bits left on my craft mat to add highlights to the flowers.
I layered some papers & a doily behind my photo & stuck down my elements.
I covered my photo & splattered some Road Base Colour Spray.
To finish I backed my page onto a dark navy card.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Have a great one,
