Hello Today by Danielle Vertigan

I was so inspired by my last layout I completed the rare
(For me that is)
Double Layout
I was so happy with the results and simply adore the new products.
So lets get this show on the road.....
I started by finger painting smears using Apple of my Eye and Leather Colour Paste

Once dry I used a cobblestone stencil and spritzed using the
Rainforest and Coffee Colour Sprays.

Stazon Ink and a Script Stamp was my next layer.
I did this randomly around the page.
The Bling Colour Paste dries with the most amazing gold I've ever seen...
The finish using the wood grain stencil is a beautiful accompaniment to the tree branches in my photos.
I placed my photos and decided to turn my layout as the script stamp did allow for this.

Now was time to play!!!!
I mixed the Midnight Colour Shimmer dust with Texture Paste.
and spread through another stencil framing my top left and bottom right corners
using a swirl stencil.
You can adjust the depth of colour simply by adding more powder.
It dried a beautiful rich chocolate which was just what I was after.

My Chipboard pieces where inked in midnight then embossed using the
Apple of my Eye  Colour Embossing Powder.
I love the depth of colour with this result.

I put my layout together utilising bronze metal flowers.
Gold small Star Punchinella
and Wood Butterflies.
The green in the butterflies matched beautifully and had a divine red that was the perfect match!
Using a black gel pen I created circles and star crisscrossed in sections to created a barbed wire effect.
the circles where created using the different Colour Blast products, Paste, Mica's, Sprays
The options of circles was perfect.

Using the Stalk of the Bling Spray I dropped it in circles onto my layout directly
 to create the perfect speckled effect.
This technique allowed me control over where they landed.
A white out Pen, Flair and Prills brought the finishing touches.
I hope there is a little something here you can take away for your next layout.
Thanks for stopping by
