'ONE BEAUTIFUL GIRL' for Colour Blast

My turn again on the Colour Blast blog today.
With this layout I wanted to create a big, bold &
dramatic background. I've used black cardstock
again to really make it pop.


I've used lots of gold in this one!
Bling Colour paste, Bling shimmer spray
& Bling embossing powder!!

I'm not a stamp & emboss kinda girl, so what I
like to do is while my paste or paint is still wet & tacky,
is pile on some embossing powder & melt it.
It creates this kinda cool metallic enamel texture to your background.

June Shares for Flutterby Designs

I thought it was time
I popped in & shared a few projects I've created
over the last several weeks. I've just started retreating again... & I LOVE being able to let my hair down & create with my people. Nothing better than having sore ab
muscles from being bent over laughing for so long.

'Hello Beautiful'

I've used the new 'Partners In Crime' collection.
I loved this sheet of Cocoa Vanilla Studio paper &
it looked like the perfect starting point. I've gone in
with some gesso & my Flutter Colour paints swooshes.
I then began piecing & layering the Everyday Etc cards
with my photo. 

Finishing up with some doodling, Circle & Confetti Circles wood veneers, Flair button, Teal Sticky Snippets, Enamel dots & Partners In Crime Page Tabs. I've also used
a Charm's Creation Mini Heart.





 'Mum Mum Mum'

This cool monochrome layout I created at a my first
retreat away from Evie (who turned 1 the day before LOL). I've started with a mixed media base.
I've used the 'I {heart} You' stencil with some glass
bead gel, plus some Flutter Colour paint, gesso & a bit
of Colour Blast paste. With a simple bit of layering, flair button, Page Tabs, doodling & title - it's done!

'PIT STOP FUN' for Colour Blast

I'm back to share a layout I made using some
fab Colour Blast products!
I've gone with a black sheet of cardstock to
really make the background pop

I've used a 12x12 stencil & taped it down on
my workspace over top of the cardstock.
I then selected the Colour Pastes I wanted to use.
I went with these colours:
Deep Water
Apple of My Eye

I started with yellow & worked my out using a
using a palette knife to spread my pastes.
Once that was dried, I watered down some gesso
& created some splatters & paint runs to where
I had decided to place my photos. 

I then watered down a bit of Sunshine & Envy
colour pastes to wash over the gesso a bit.
I also flicked my brush to add splatters.

I then finished off with my photos & embellishments :)

A couple of weeks ago, at Shop & Crop's Glamping
retreat I showed the girls a quick demo using the
Colour Blast Colour Pastes.

With the one of the demo backgrounds I created,
I made into a layout for one of my new friends, Kathy
of her gorgeous tribe :)
