Layout Inspiration by Trudi Harrison

Hello Again Colour Blasters!
Trudi with you today sharing some more Colour Blast fun.

Earlier this month I had the absolute pleasure of teaching this layout at a workshop for the Surreal Creations Day Retreat.  Thanks so much to Danielle and Hailey for having me!
Participants created a beautiful background with Shimmer Sprays and Colour Pastes and I have to say that the results were fabulous. Although this layout is quite 'feminine', it was still quite adaptable for photo's of boys (as some did) and perfect for holiday memories.  
I have to admit that Deep WaterFire Engine Red and Sunshine are one of my favourite combinations. 
2Crafty Chipboard elements were first painted white. I like to paint chipboard first to help with absorption and to keep the colour I am working with 'true'.
 A variegated effect was added to the flourishes with Deep Water and Dusty Charcoal Shimmer Sprays.  Deep Water Colour Paste was then randomly dabbed over the top to add a little texture and intensity. 
Colour was added to the chipboard title with Fire Engine and Sunshine Shimmer sprays and 
white roses were spritzed with Fire Engine then lightly dabbed with white gesso.
Thanks so much for dropping by,
Till next time
