When in Doubt by Tracey Campbell

Hello Bee Arty Fans, it is my turn on the blog today and I am excited to share my latest layout with you where I use bits and pieces of various Bee Arty collections to create a 12x12 page. I must admit I love to mix and match collections from Bee Arty as they all seem to go so well together and it uses up my stash.
    First up I grabbed the Heavy White Gesso and the Devotion stencil to create a background on white card stock. I spread the Heavy White Gesso through the stencil that was positioned on a cardstock like a diamond. 

After the Gesso was dry I used a pipette  to drop splats of Royalty Colour Shimmer Spray over the floral image. I made sure that I only dropped the splats down the right and along the bottom of the cardstock. 
While the Royalty Colour Shimmer Spray was still wet I used a piece of plastic to spread the splatters out wider. This is done by simply placing the plastics over the wet splats and spreading it with your fingers. 
Next I added contracting splats of Colour with the pipette and by flicking the straw from the top of the spray across the page. For the contrast in colour I used Rose Petal Colour Shimmer Spray and Sapphire Colour Spray. 

Fussy cut 7 small and medium circles from the Collection paper in the Fearless, Brave and Free Collection.

Using the String Wreath and Seeker metal dies cut one image from some white card stock. Make a shaker box from the String Wreath die cut. This is done by cutting a insert of the vellum and adhering it to the center of the String Wreath. Place thin 3 Dimensional Tape around the inner edge of the String Wreath and fill with glitter and small sprinkle shapes. Adhere a backing of white cardstock

Using a paint brush paint the Seeker die cut with the Sapphire Colour Spray and the Royalty Colour Shimmer Spray. Allow the colours to blend together  to create a water paint look. 

Build the background using the product strips from Arty Farty, Trendsetter and Fearless Brave & Free collections to build up a crosshatch in the bottom right hand corner of the cardstock. Adhere the shaker box to the page with some white glue.

With 3 Dimensional tape adhere the photo to the background and stick the Seeker die cut along the bottom of the photo. 
Finish off the layout with some large gems and a title from the Trendsetter Sparkle Paper

Well I hope I have inspired you to use a mix and match of collections and to not just discard those cut off product strips, save them for a quick and easy layout. 

Thanks for stopping by.
