"Faces of You" by Anita Enright

Welcome back to the Colour Blast blog today.

During my time on the Design Team you will get to see a lot of my gorgeous little nephew Thomas.  He is nearly 18 months and has started running around now so he is becoming a little man with such a huge personality.

Featured in my layout today I have used the amazing Heavy White Gesso, the Colour Shimmer Spray and Colour Embossing Powder.

Starting with some of the Heavy White Gesso on a plate and added a few drops of the Envy Colour Shimmer Spray to mix up to the shade I needed.

Using one of my stencils I applied the paste with a spatula at different points over the white cardstock.  With the remainder I applied directly to the cardstock. Finally who doesn't love a 'splat' or two around the page.... me!! So that's what I did. 

So below is a picture of what it looked like before everything else went down on to the page.

Next, using some of the Envy Colour Embossing Powder I heat embossed my wooden letters.  I did two coats of the embossing powder to get a good coverage.

I forgot to take a picture of the next step.  I took a scribble chipboard circle from my stash and chopped in half.  Then, using the Dusty Charcoal Colour Shimmer Spray I painted the chipboard.  To do this I took a paper towel and absorbed a lot of the moisture, leaving a little moisture with the shimmer dust behind. I then applied it with a paint brush. I repeated the same process on two wood veneer arrows.

I did some stamping around the page using a black ink pad.  From my patterned paper offcut stash I added a couple of strips of matching patterned paper behind my matted photos (also on patterned paper).  I also found in my stash a couple of tags from a Prima ephemera pack.  

The photo I was using as the central point was matted on 3D foam tape before adhering to the page. Popped down the title and I'm done.... and not a flower in site.

Below are a couple of close up photos of my finished page. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I hope I inspired you to have fun and create something.

Ciao for now.
