A Colourful Life! by Linda Pearson

Hi Bee Arters ... today I am sharing a ‘by chance’ page I created recently.  Working on another project I had a quantity of .. colourblast colour paste left over so applied the paste through the Beautiful mess stencil in my kraft paper journal.

Bee Arty Products used:

-   Beautiful mess – stencil from the Arty Farty collection designed by Michelle Grant

-   Colourblast Colour paste - Rose Petal

-   Colourblast Colour artist inks – slipper, barley, marine, calypso, grass

-   Colourblast Shimmer dust  – duke (added to grass ink with water to make a spray)

-   Craft Powder Spoon

Kraft paper journal
Water spray
Black watercolour pencil
Acrylic gloss spray – white


Later after the paste had dried, I decided to add some ink colours to the page.  Firstly, I sprayed the Kraft paper with water then added some drops of the Colour artist inks (slipper, barley, marine, calypso), drying off each colour in turn.  I used a paint brush to spread the ink over the surface.  I mixed grass Colour artist inks with water and some Shimmer dust duke to make a shimmer mix with a pipette over the page.

The colours dried a little darker due to the Kraft paper.

I added some Acrylic Gloss spray paint lightly over the page.  Using the black pencil, I outlined the wording to highlight then added water to the pencil to blend the pencil and anchor the text.


Thank you, it was a pleasure sharing this simple page with you and look forward to seeing you next time!
