He's an EPIC showoff! - Skai Mitchell

Whoo hooo... its another long weekend and I hope your are getting some crafty time scheduled in

I'm sharing a layout today that pulls out all the bells and whistles in regards to product usage. I'm a scrapper that uses multiple products and techniques on her layouts, and I'll take you through each medium step by step... 

Step One - Shimmer Dusts. 

Using a dry brush, flick some of your Sunshine shimmer dust onto your background and give a few sprays of water. 

Next, add some Candy shimmer dust with a dry brush and repeat with water spray. 

Using a straw, blow some of the shimmer dust liquid in random bursts. 

Grab a bottle of Love colour spray, unscrew the lid and using the straw add random flicks and blobs to the page. 

Step Two - Colour Paste

Grab your favourite stencil, some Colour Paste in Dusty Charcoal and a pallet knife. 

Using the pallet knife, spread random blobs of the Colour paste. I've made mine really uneven and random, as that's the effect I was going for. You could be very deliberate and even in your application if you wanted to. 

Repeat randomly over the page in places where you know your wont be adding your layers. 

Step Three - Colour Sprays

Next I've used some of the Colour Spray in Roadbase to colour some medical gauze on a messy mat. You could leave it to air dry, or gently use a heat gun to aid drying. 

Begin to stick down your layers and get some assemblage happening. I've used some music sheets and velum edged with black Stazon, and I've added a messy machine stitching frame. 

Step Four - Colour Embossing Powder.

Everyone using embossing powder a little differently, but these are the steps I take. Using your Versamark pad, wet the side of your chipboard you plan to emboss. Cover generously with embossing powder, I've used Fire Engine, and flip over to ensure the whole piece is coated. Scoop up your Embossing powder and place it carefully back into the tub. Gently heat the chipboard with a heat gum and 'melt' the powder evenly. 

Step Five - Colour Spray. 

I've used the Colour spray in Love again to colour my chipboard piece. Give it a good coating with the spray, and I use a piece of medical gauze to soak up the extras and use on another project. 

Assemble it all together and add some coordinating embellishments and alphas. 

Hope you have enjoyed my very textural and layered creation this week

Love and light
