I am Me by Suzanne Franin

Hey Everyone Suzanne here

This project for Colour Blast was made for a new friend for a reminder of where she has come from and where she has been in her life 

Make sure you visit the rest of the blog and discover what fabulous creations have been made here lately 

So I started of by painting everything with the Colour Blast White Gesso to give everything a nice even surface to work on
I then mixed in some Colour Mica Powder Espresso with some clear gesso too make a nice shimmery colour for the frame and some of the embellishments 
It's a shame the camera doesn't pick up the shimmer
Tip - Make sure to put the powder in first that way you won't get the dust floating up as you mix it together

Then on a few of my embellishments that I used the Colour Mica powder mix on I added Colour Embossing Powders - Bling and Sienna just a little sprinkle on them for some contrast

On the Memory Maze Ladies form with decorative wings I added the Bling so it would stand out and then used some Colour Artist Ink in Slipper which I also added to a few of the other embellishments to brighten up the piece

On the background of the frame I glued some material using the Helmar Super-Tac Glue it's a good strong glue and keeps things in place for ever 
I then too some Colour Artist Inks in Soot and Rust and added them to the background spraying water as I went until I was happy with the colours

Then the fun begins arranging everything I placed a sheer piece of fabric in the back under all the flowers to soften things 
I thought I'd use yellow flowers as it's such a happy colour and the quote is quite heavy and deep and then the little pink paper clay embellishments scattered I think add a bit of fun 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon x
