'Bloom' by Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!

It's Belinda here with you today to share my latest layout created for Bee Arty and inspired by the July Mood Board.

Here's a reminder of the mood board.

Such pretty colours!

I started my layout by cropping a sheet of the 350gsm heavy white cardstock and mounting on a sheet of the Untangle Mindset patterned paper. I then mixed up all of the colours for my background. I used the Colour Blast White Heavy Gesso and added Colour Artist Dye Inks in Berry, Citrus, Lime, Oasis and Slipper. You might notice that my last swipe of colour on my page looks grey. It's actually purple but either my photography or lighting was bad. Trust me. It is purple in real life! I used a paintbrush to add all of the stripes of colour and then diluted the paint so I could flick it over the page.

Once my background was completely dry, I added some stencilling with Colour Paste in Snow White and the Gridlock - A6 Stencil. 

Here you can see how this Colour Paste adds such a gorgeous shimmer.

Next, I added some stamping using the Bokeh Clear Stamp Set and the Going My Way Clear Stamp Set. I used Archival Ink and Distress Oxides for my stamping.

I chopped up the Untangle Silence patterned paper and layered the pieces together with the Frame Metal Die die cut. I fussy cut some flowers from the Embrace and the Collection Bonus patterned papers and added all to the page. Finally I added my embellishments and my title as well as quotes cut from the patterned papers.

Products used:
- Collection Bonus patterned paper

Gridlock - A6 Stencil

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are feeling inspired to have a play with the mood board too.
