Live For Today - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of amazing products from Bee Arty!
I'm also joining in with the May Creative Challenge "Get in the Picture". We would love for you to join in on the challenge and be in the running to win a $30 online store voucher!

  I wanted to use papers from the "Forever My Always" Collection designed by the talented Fiona Paltridge. So I selected colours for my background that complemented this kit. 

For the first layer of my background I used a selection of Colour Shimmer dusts, Mica Powders, and Shimmer sprays. I always start by trialing the colours on white cardstock. I do also have colour swatches of all available colours but I really like to see just the colours I intend to use on a single sample swatch. I didnt have a navy blue shimmer dust so I mixed midnight with cobalt - perfect! Always remember that you can do this to get the perfect colour match for your project!

Now that my colours have been selected I create my background. I use a painting with plastic technique to do this. I add one colour at a time (drying thoroughly in-between colours). I used Midnight-Cobalt Colour Shimmer dust blend, Stormy Weather Mica Powder,  Bling Shimmer spray, and Midnight Colour Shimmer dust. Lastly I add splatters of each of these colours.

  Once the background is completely dry I add some stamping using the Forever My Always Forever Always clear stamp, where I have just inked up the flowers in her hair section.

Then I add stencilling using the Triangle Spray A5 stencil with Bling Colour paste.
 Here is my finished page.

  Underneath my photo I have layered a white paper doilie and some X & O paper from the Forever My Always collection. I've also added flowers fussy cut from the Gentle Heart paper.
 I've also added some chipboard and flowers from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by
