'You're Weird I Like It' for Colour Blast

I'm back to share a little layout I created for Colour Blast 
the other week at a retreat .
This one is SUPER easy to create - let me tell you how....

'You're Weird I Like It'

Using some 'Marshmellow' Bazzill Cardstock,
I put down a layer of gesso & with one of my
old (kinda hard) brushes, I dragged it through to
add some texture to the gesso.

I then used some clear 'Glass Bead Gel' through a
Flutterby stencil. This media dries really cool.

 Then it was time for some Colour Blast Paste!!
I've used 'Envy' in this. I put a blob of it on my craft
mat & watered it down. Using a paintbrush,
I applied in areas to my background. Using a water
spray bottle, I can spray different parts & moving my cardstock around - I can achieve nice movement
throughout my background.

I gave that a quick dry & used the left overs on my
mat with a smallish paint brush, do add 'flicks' to my layout.

I finished my layout off with some simple embellishments.
Firstly a large open cutfile, an foiled ampersand, my photos, some word stickers, thread & a flair button :)

My little girl is the cheekiest kid ever!!
These faces she's pulled are priceless LOL

'Hello THere Sweetheart' By Anita Rodway for Colour Blast

It's my turn on the Colour Blast blog today & I've got a little layout to share with you :)
I've taken a few step-by-step pics to show
you my process.

I've grabbed some Bazzill 'Marshmellow' mixed media cardstock
(which doesn't require any gesso) & some Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays:
Royality & Lipstick. I've sprayed & dried it a few times, to build up the
colour & look of what I wanted.

I've then stuck down a strip of this pretty wrapping paper. I've then grabbed
a Flutterby Design 'I Heart You' stencil & 'Deep Water' Colour Blast paste.
While that was still a bit tacky, I've grabbed my 'Royality' Colour Blast Embossing
powder & just sprinkled over the paste. I kinda like how bubbly it went as I heated it.

I watered down some 'Deep Water' Colour Blast paste & added some drippage
thru the hearts. I decided it needed another 'pop' of colour, so of course I grabbed
some 'Bling' Colour Blast paste & Shimmer Spray. I've used a script stencil for
the paste & flicked on some splats with the shimmer spray.

Here's what my finshed layout turned out like :)
