Hello crafty people!
Well I am the first to admit that I have really neglected my little blog. I am going to try and keep on top of it a bit more this year, tho I must admit I don't always find it easy to navigate my way around! I find it much more easier to just share on Facebook. If you are on Facebook feel free to friend me. I am under the name Joanne Simons :)
Anyways late last year I was given some of the amazing new Colour Blast products from the wonderful Tenisha at Scrap Elegance Scrapbook Supplies. WOW WOW WOW! I had a wonderful time playing with these products. They have texture pastes, embossing powders and also colour mists all in the most divine range of shimmery colours!
So I was given the colour Deep Water. So pretty.
Here is my first layout. I used the texture paste for my background.
The flowers I gave a very fine spray mist with the spray. My frame I covered in gesso first and then again just a very fine spray withthe mist.
Here is a closer look. I love how some of the colour is vibrant and shimmery but you can still achieve a more subtle tone too.
This next layout is definately a little more bolder!
I have again used the spray on my frame but also gone over it with an ink pad to give it a little depth. The really cool thing is that the colour still shimmers through. The text script stencil is also done using the texture paste. I LOVE how this one turned out. Definately one of my favourites at the moment that I have done. Think it might be the yellow and blue colours as they are colours that i don't normally use and its always good to step out of your comfort zone right?
I had some nice big white blossoms and thought they would look great coloured so again I have sprayed them. The square chippie piece is covered using the embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by and having a little look. I promise I will update a little more frequently - well at least try
Crafty hugs to all
