Beautiful #GLENELG by Charmane Koch

 Happy Friday Everyone!

Don't know about you guys, but TGIF! It's the last day of term here for SA and it has been an EXTRA EXTRA long dramatic week! Let alone it being everyone drained, tired & totally ready for a well deserved break, we've had the "are we in lockdown, or are we not in lockdown?" What the hell is going on???

Can't imagine the rest of the country it is a totally mental health brain drain! I think we all need to just all have a holiday at home and GET CREATIVE!!!???

The problem is I am always in limbo! And working in Aged Care, it's very unlikely that I will actually go into lockdown being an "Essential Worker" BUT I have been FULLY VACCINATED! Yay! I am one in 1 and half million to be 100% vaccinated! Not preaching, but I have done everything in my power to not spread it! I just want LIFE to get back to as NORMAL AS POSSIBLE - for ALL OF US!

ANYWAY, I may have had a couple of wines {it's Thursday almost Friday ;)} I want to share one of my ALL TIME FAVE stencil from BEE ARTY - Interwoven... I am sure I will be using this many times over as I just love the design of it!

In the sneak above I have used a technique that I shared at the Bee Arty Retreat - using Snow White Colour Paste and then sprinkling Embossing powder over the top and heating with a heat gun - however I have used 3 different Embossing powders... very carefully sprinkling so they don't fully mix together...

The sneak above is my original "practise run" where I have just used one of the Embossing Powders - Just Blue, then after Heat gunning, I have sprayed a bit of Bling Mica Powder and water using a paintbrush.

This was also my Embossing Die Cuts stage... so Embossed circular Die Cuts using Blush Embossing Powder... love this effect so much! Messy but fun!

The background paper I used was the "Confidence" Fearless, Brave & Free - which matched perfectly with my photos...

I used White 350gsm Cardstock to back the photos I used, but coloured with Royalty Mica Powder, soaking up the leftover colour with the Muslin.

The colours I really love! So VIBRANT! Hope you like too & hope I've inspired you to play!

Thanks for popping by!

XO Charm
