You Make Me Smile by Farrel Tailor

Hello lovely Colour Blast Peeps!!!
It's Farrel here with my very first share on the blog today!!!! I am so excited to be apart of this amazing team and hopefully you will enjoy my projects as much as I enjoyed creating them.
So lets get to it...

For those that know me, I do love my sprays and creating layers with them and that's what this layout is all about.

So first of all I started with covering the area I wanted to work in with White Gesso. I then used texture paste (modelling paste will work also) and stenciled using Tim Holtz Houndstooth mini stencil and a bubble stencil from Scrap Fx

While the texture paste was still wet, I sprayed Colour Spray Grape and Violet randomly on to the paste. I then spritzed with water to let the colour mingle. 
I then splattered Colour Shimmer Spray Lovely Lilac and dried the sprays.

I sprayed Colour Spray Carribean and Sapphire and again spritzed with water.
I added a little of Colour Shimmer Spray in Rose Petal for a little bit of sparkle.
To help break up all the colour, I added a small amount of Colour Spray Road Base and used water to help it run on the page.

For an extra layer, I used Kaisercraft stamp Moroccan and black archival ink and stamped randomly.

I used Colour Spray Road Base as a base coat to my chipboard flourish, once dried I used my finger to lightly dab on white gesso. I then splattered with Colour Shimmer Spray Rose Petal.

I had 2 small yellow flowers that I sprayed with Colour Spray Grape and with a paint brush added Colour Shimmer Lovely Lilac on the purple flower. Then lightly rubbed some white gesso over the petals.

To finish off the layout, I cut the flourish chipboard in half and added navy and lilac thread to my flower cluster. I then added my chipboard title and a small label for the date.

Thank you for letting me share this layout with you all and I can't wait to show my next project soon. If you would like to purchase any of the items I have used please click on the product links throughout the post. Be sure to check out my process video at Scrapalicious Designs
