Hello Mr Rad! - By Fiona Hughes

Hi fellow Colour Blasters. Ok, 
m going to be straight up and tell you I have been feeling incredibly jealous this last couple of
Why?, I hear you ask. Well, one of my favourite bands were in town, with one of my main crushes as  lead singer/guitarist.
Yes..... The FOO FIGHTERS were here.
To say I was gutted that I did NOT get tickets, is the biggest understatement of all time!
So, I pulled out this layout I did earlier last year, using some amazing ColourBlast products and some super cool, "Foo-ey" Flair.

To begin, I grabbed some heavy gauge, light kraft cardstock.
I stuck down this groovy pipe-y type, chipboard piece, hard up against the left hand side of the page. I, then, decided to go with our Heavy Black Gesso. I painted it from left to right, over the chippie, (making sure all the nooks & crannies are covered) with rough strokes to finish at the right. Take a look at the above pic.

Then, I chose my 3 favourite colours within the range of sprays,- Colour Spray in- Roadbase & Colour Shimmer Spray in- Steel & Stormy Weather. I used these lil gems, to make splatters over the entire page, (as is one of my "things").

 I allowed these to dry naturally. Weird i know!! who doesn't use a heat tool, right???

It's time for the embellies now. So I thought stars would work, because Dave Groll is a star, lol!
Minimalist that I am, I thought 3 little wood veneer stars would be enough. To make them sparkley, I selected our Colour Embossing Powder in- Snow White, to do the trick. Subtle yet effective, yes????

Now it's time to put our page together. I went with some fussy cut pieces, from another one of our awesome Australian companies, for my Title, & some cotton, punchinella, patterned paper to mount the chosen pic of my crush, plus the strip down the right had side of the page,  & of course, those seriously cute Foo Fighters flair.

Really hope you all like him, oops!, I mean, It!, as much as I do!

Ok crafty peeps, that's it for me today.  It's kind of a random page but i really hope you like it & can take something from it for your pages.

Much love to you guys.
Cheers, Fi x x
