Colour Blast Retreat & Process Video with Selena Stevens

I have noticed that a lot of the Colour Blast Design Team members are beginning to do more art journaling, so I thought I would have a go at doing a layout (but it is still in my art journal).  The photos used are from the Colour Blast Retreat in October 2017.

To watch the timelapse video go here.

So, lets begin….

I began with a journal page that I had used to clean stencils, use up left over paint, and to look at colours of ink.

I began by wetting the page by spraying it with water.  Then Colour Spray (Sunset) was sprayed randomly over the page.  While this page was still wet I sprinkled Colour Shimmer Dust (Cobalt & Candy) and sprayed it with water again to make sure it was all dissolved.  I moved the colour around the page with a paint brush to cover the white of the page.

While the page was wet, I placed two StencilGirl stencils onto the page.  I sprinkled more of the same Colour Shimmer Dust and wet it again to dissolve the granules.  A paint brush was used to move the colour around on top of the stencil.  This was left to dry.

While waiting for the page to dry I painted the chipboard with Heavy Black Gesso.  Applied a clear embossing ink and covered it with Colour Embossing Powder (Just Blue).  The Colour Embossing Powder was heated with a heat gun until it was activated.

Once the background was dry. Paint was pounced through the same stencils in blue and red.  A few paint splatters in red, blue and white were added to the page.  Heavy White Gesso was applied to a stamp and stamped onto the background where the photos are going to go.  Once this was dry, Colour Paste (Just Blue) was scraped through a star stencil near where the photos will be attached.

The photos, chipboard, cotton and button were glued onto the page and left to dry.

I hope you enjoyed this, especially since it was something a little different from me.

Until next time,
