'Roundabout' by Amy C

Hi there ColourBlast fans! 

This photo was captured on one of my many morning walks.
 I wanted to capture something simple to work with on my page.

So here we go! I selected a sheet of patterned 7 Dots Studio paper and adhered it to blue cardstock.
I deliberately misaligned it, for effect.

Using the Sunset  Colour Spray and mosaic glass stencil I sprayed the area, as pictured.

Looks pretty cool, huh! (even if I do say so myself!)

For the background, to add some dimension, I added both small and large circles. Some were stamped with a permanent ink, and some were hand drawn using a Posca black marker.

Using a diamond stencil and a spatula, I applied some of the Stormy Weather  Colour Paste to selected areas. 

Very quickly, while it was still wet, I sprinkled some embossing powder in Sunshine and Tangareen Dream then immediately heat dried it with a heat gun. This results in a cool metallic effect.

To complete the background and allow it to blend, I added a few sprinkles using the Roadbase  Colour Spray and Sunshine Colour  Shimmer Cube.
Before I began to add my embellishments to the page, I wanted to add some ‘Chicken Wire Chipboard’.

As pictured, I primed the chipboard with 'White Heavy Gesso'. After heat-drying, I painted it roughly with a mixture of ‘Just Blue’ Colour Shimmer Cube and water. Next it was time to place my matted photo down and embellish the page. I created a cluster with flowers, wood veneer pieces, Punchinello from D-Lish Scraps and chipboard.
Here are some more close ups.

Thank you for dropping by!
Ciao, Amy
