Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!
I created this layout recently for a live on the Colour Blast be Bee Arty facebook page (watch here) and thought I would show some close-up pics and links in a blog post.
I started with a sheet of Comfort Zone paper from the Fearless, Brave and Free collection. I add to this background by adding Peacock, Cobalt, and Paris Colour Shimmer Dusts using a painting with plastic technique and splatters.
When this is dry (I always dry thoroughly between layers) I add stencilling using the Organised Chaos stencil and Cobalt Colour Shimmer Dust (mixed with water then gently sponged through the stencil).
Next add stamping using the Cool Words stamp set and a black archival ink pad. I just use parts of these word stamps to add to my background.
I mat the photo on Strength paper. Then embellish the page with diecuts using the Calendula metal die, the Fine Feathers metal die, and the Frame metal die. I've also added elements (circles and arrows) cut from the Leap paper and words from the Free paper. Finally I doodle around the page with a fine black Life of colour pen (I love love love these pens - the best paint pens, and an Australian company!).
Here is my completed page.
Here are some close-ups of the page.
Thanks so much for stopping by
