Pink Clouds by Suzanne Franin

Hey Everyone Suzanne here

This is my first post for Colour Blast and I had so much fun playing with the products

I started with a small canvas that I had prepared with White Heavy Gesso  and I also used it on my chipboard

Then I used some Colour Paste in Fire Engine
I spread it across the canvas with a spatular making it look random thicker in some parts and making sure to do the edges of the canvas

While this was drying I used some
Colour Shimmer Dust Sunflower and Amber on a Memory Maze chipboard Flourish and mini Dream Catcher 
I mixed a little of the two together to try and get the orange colour to match the sky line

In the end I didn't use the Dream Catcher so that will be used another time 

I used Colour Paste Blush through a stencil and the left over mix of  the Colour Shimmer Dusts I let dribble over the canvas once the stencilled areas had dried 

So I wanted to add a touch of blue as there is a little bit in the sky 
I used the Colour Mica Powder Polar on a doily by stamping with the versa mark ink then brushing over the top with the Polar - the versa mark helps it stay as it has a glue like effect
The stamp is from Memory Maze

I also used the Polar  Colour Mica Powder on a paper clay flower and a metal embellishment which I also added versa mark too 

I added a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative which helps the Colour Mica Powders from coming off your projects when you don't add them to a binder like Gesso or gel medium type products

Here you can see I added some small glass beads, I love using those or micro beads just for added texture and dimension 

Here are close up's of the metal and the paper clay flower I used the Polar Colour Mica Powder on, it's so pretty and shimmery

I also added some Bling Colour Paste to the edges of the white flowers for some bling (this is one of my favourite paste colours of all I use it on everything) 

I used some Flutterby Design White tiny sticky quotes I use these a lot too, these ones seemed perfect for the photo I used 
I like to try and find inspirational words to add to my projects 

These two photos show the dimension that the paste gives through the stencil and also the layers I have on my canvas

Well that's it from me I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did making it 

Thank you and I hope you will come back again xx
