Happy Little Moments By Tracey Campbell

 Hello Bee Arty friends. 

Today I have a layout to share with you that has stamping, stencilling and the magic of Shimmer Dust.... what more could you want?

I started off by blocking out around the Dusk stencil with some plastic and placing it roughly in the centre of some heavy white cardstock.

I then spraying three different shades of  purple Shimmer Spray; Rose Petal, Royalty and Indigo through the stencil onto white cardstock. 

I then moved the stencil to the left, lining up the print and strayed again.

The photo above is how the sprayed stencilling turned out. 

Next I sprinkled two colours of Shimmer Dust; Velvet and Duke, across the bottom of the cardstock,

I then activated it with water.

As the Duke Shimmer Dusk was move bolder than colour than the Velvet I decided to sprinkle a bit more Velvet on and sprayed more water to make the coloured area bigger.

On the bottom of the cardstock I used the excess Shimmer Dust fluid that had run off the page and my finger to spread it over the bottom edge.

Here is how the base turned out, I love how vivid and bright the Shimmer Dust is compared to the muted Shimmer Sprays.

Once dry I used some waterproof black ink and stamped various images; Kind Heart, Heartfelt, and Meridian, around the bottom edge and half way up the left and right edges of the cardstock.

I then use Bling Colour Paste through the Mandala stencil.

Here is how the base turned out.

Next I backed a 6x4 photo with some vellum paper and gold foil cardstock and adhered it to the centre of the base.

Next fussy cut some flowers from the Tea Time in Wonderland Collection

Adhere the flowers around the photo, using some tacky glue in the centre and some 3 dimensional tape around the edges. Use a pen to press the centre of the flower down to the stick it to the cardstock. Use you finder to turn the flower pedals up to give them some dimension. 

I used the end of a paint brush to add some Bling Colour Paste to the centre of the flowers to give them a touch of shimmer. 

Using some Black waterproof ink I stamped the title "Happy Little Moments" from the Happy Stamp Set to the bottom left hand corner of the photo. 

Wanting a bit more dimension in the flowers I used the Flower Stems metal dies and cut out four of each stem from the green coloured papers in the Embrace Change Collection

I then adhered the die cuts around the fussy cut flowers. 

Here is how the final layout turned out. I love creating my own back ground with a bit of stamping and stencilling with the magic of Shimmer Dust, you never really know how it will turn out but it always looks stunning.

Thanks for popping in.
