'Be Awesome Today' for Colour Blast

Hi there Colour Blasters! Anita here :)
I'm back today with some creative inspiration for you.
Saddly, this is my last post on the Colour Blast team :(
I have had a ball playing with these fantastic products.
Here's what I created...


 After playing along with Kraft+ challenge,
that Colour Blast sponsored
the other month. I decided I LOVED the
challenge soooo much, I wanted to have ANOTHER
crack at it LOL....

I've prep a little, using a gesso to created an 'island'.
I then grabbed a colour in the Mica Powders, & created
some watercolour detail over the gesso.

I used the same colour to mix in with some
gel medium & put thru the Flutterby
'Words of Wisdom' stencil.

I then finished of with LOTS of gorgeous goodies from Flutterby Designs!!!

'Hello Love' for Colour Blast

Hi there Colour Blasters!!! 
Anita here :)
I'm sharing a sneak peek at some new
Mica Colour Powders!! Here's a layout I created
using them...


I have not used mica powders a lot before, so I adapted
them in a way I was familiar
with. I firstprepped my layout with some gesso
& then moved in to create a watercolour
effect using the powders.

I decided then I wanted to do some stenciling,
so I mixed some mica powder in with some gel medium
& used a script stencil.

I wanted to alter my wood veneer, by colouring it.
I painted it with gesso first, & while it was wet, daubed
some mica powder onto it using my finger.

I had made up the pink mica powder & gel medium
originally for stencilling, but changed my mind LOL.
I didn't want to waste it - who ever wants to do that?!
So I started freehanding a big flower on my layout.
Once it was dried, I knifed around a few petals & tucked
my photo underneath.

I finished off embellishing with a few
Flutterby Designs goodies.
Have you had a play with the new Mica Powders yet???
