'You Are Awesome' layout for Colour Blast

Hi there!
I'm back to share another Colour Blast layout with you :)
I started with a blank piece of white cardstock...
I grabbed a pile of cards from the new Everyday Etc cards 'Drama Queen' & Stencil 'Stargazed' from Flutterby Designs
& Colour Blast colour paste & shimmer spray in 'Royalty'.


I didn't prep this background at all with any gesso,
just straight in with some Colour Blast Colour Paste - Royalty
& the Flutterby 'Stargazed' stencil to go with the cards I had chosen.

I had arranged my cards & photos prior to doing
my background. Once happy with their arrangement,
I glued them together - but NOT to the background.
This gives me a rough idea where to use my Colour Paste,
where it wont be hidden by my photos.
This is a great tip when creating your own backgrounds.
I hate creating such a beautiful background & then
your photo covers most of it up - hence why I love using
4x4 photos or smaller ;) 

I've then used Colour Blast Shimmer Spray - Royalty,
& 'flicked' some shimmer over the stars to give it a
splattered look. Then once that was all dry, I glued
my photo/card cluster to my layout & added the finishing embellishments - Flutterby Designs - flair buttons, Page tabs,
small wood veneer stars. Some black thread & doodling
with a Posca Paint pen.... ta-da!!!
