You by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi Colour Blast fans, today's share features one of my fur babies and lots of Colour Blast goodness.

I've started out with my normal, a piece of white card stock and swiped a few nice, thick few lines of Colour Blast Black Heavy Gesso right across the middle of the page.  I have just used the end of an old rewards card for this.  It fits in the jar perfectly.

While this was drying, which doesn't take too long, I mixed some water with a little Colour Shimmer Dust in Peacock.  
With a thick brush I've then swiped this along the top and bottom edge of the almost dry gesso.

When my Shimmer Dust arrived in the mail I was so excited and just had to have a quick play.  I did a couple of quick swatches on a scrap of paper.
I got Peacock, Paris and Midnight and they are so pretty and shimmery that I didn't want to waste any of it.

I used the swatches to make my embellishments for the page.
I stamped a few flowers and heat embossed these.  Once fussy cut I've used a black marker to draw around the edges the flowers.  This hides any imperfections in your cutting and if you use a thick marker, it can also add a little shadow and dimension to your fussy cutting.

Before assembling my layout I did a little messy journaling and spattered some more Peacock Shimmer Dust mixed with water.

A little gold thread and a few jewels to finish it off.

Hope you've been inspired.
