Hello Bee Arty fans!!
It's Belinda here with you today to share my latest layout featuring lots of amazing Colour Blast products inspired by the February Sketch Challenge.
Here's a peek at the challenge:
To start this layout, I first cropped a sheet of the awesome Bee Arty Heavy Weight White Cardstock and mounted on a sheet of patterned paper from the fabulous Untangle Collection. I then applied the Stardust Stencil with Snow White Colour Paste using a palette knife.
Once the Colour Paste was dry, I spritzed the page with water and dropped in Colour Artist Inks. I first started with the Citrus. I dropped the colour into the wet areas, spritzed with more water, pushed it around with my fingertip, blotted with a scrunched up paper towel and then dried off with a heat gun. I repeated this process with both the Oasis and Slipper inks until I was happy with the coverage.
Next, I added some stamping. I used the Bokeh Stamp Set with Aquamarine Archival Ink. I used the text stamp from the set without an acrylic block so I could achieve a more random stamping style.
I added some messy thread across my page and then added a layered stack of matching patterned papers from the Untangle collection. I inked the edges of the paper with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.
I added my photo using 3D foam and then the Postage Stamp Die Cut on top. I slipped in the Honeycomb Die Cut on either side of the paper stack too.
Next I stamped a whole bunch of leaves from the Floral Delights 1 Clear Stamp Set and fussy cut each one. I also stamped some stars and the filmstrips from the Moments In Time Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival Ink. I fussy cut some flowers from the Bloom patterned paper. I painted these flowers using the same Colour Artist Inks as the background.
Finally I assembled the layout using all of the fussy cut elements as well as the title and the quote cut from the Inspirations patterned paper.
I used the smallest star stamp from the Moments In Time Stamp Set to add a cute sprinkling of stars over the layout too.
