Hello Colour Blast fans!
It’s Amy here, with another simple layout.
As it turns out, with this project, I had a different photo in mind. So, you will see the photo changes as you read on – but hey, that’s the beauty with art – there are no mistakes! …and things don’t always go to plan!
Products used to create this layout.
Firstly, to prime my page in preparation for the heavy liquid, I applied White Heavy Gesso. Using a foam roller, I applied full coverage. To speed up the drying process, I used a heat gun.
After the surface area was completely dried, I spritzed most of the page with water, then immediately sprayed both Sapphire and Rainforest Colour Spray.
While the ink was wet, I manually moved the paper around to allow the ink to spread out, to my liking. Once I was happy with the coverage, using a paintbrush, I splattered one leftover ink randomly around the page as shown.
Once I finished inking the background, before I moved onto the next page, I placed my photo to make sure I was happy with the flow of the page.
Using a spatula and stencil, I applied the gorgeous Envy Colour Paste in various places around the page. The Envy Colour Paste goes very nicely with a blue and green background.
To add a bit of detail in the background, I stamped it using permanent black ink as pictured.
After the background was fully prepared, it was time to move onto some embellishment. I used the running Steel Colour Embossing Powder, to heat emboss chipboard butterflies. Seeing the grains of the powder was quite nice and fine, it melts really well.
After this, I finally adhered the photo that I thought was most suitable for the layout, then completed my cluster of embellishments.
Thank you for stopping by. I do look forward to seeing your creations on the Colour Blast Creative Corners.
