Hello and welcome back to the Colour Blast Blog. For this post I want to share a few ideas on using some of the Colour Blast Products whilst producing a layout that's main focus is the photo. I have a simple process video on how I created the layout which will show you all the details at the top of the post, so please have a look if you have time.
In the mean time I will take you through how I used the Colour Blast Products on my layout.
First I created the back ground by stamping a few hearts on the cardstock with embossing ink and then pouring some of the Colour Embossing Powder - Stormy Weather on to the wet ink. Next pour the excess Colour Embossing Powder back into the pot.
Using a heat gun I heated up the Colour Embossing Powder until it went liquidly and changed colour. The Colour Embossing Powder is a great high quality product which has an awesome amount of colour it in, so that when you emboss with it the colour turns out bold and bright.
After I embossed the hearts onto the background cardstock I messy painted three of the hearts with some Caribbean Colour Spray.
Next I mixed some of the Bubblegum Colour Spray with some Iridescent Medium and messy painted over the top of two of the embossed hearts (the painted embossed heart is under the word love in the photo below).
I wanted to create a bold smooth finish to the wood veneer so I used a blending tool to spread a thick layer of Colour Paste in Just Blue over the heart. The Colour Paste is a versatile product that is simply delicious to use. Just as a note for you to know, the Colour Paste dries a darker shade than what the wet paste is, so try a little bit first on a bit of scrap so that you know what the colour turns out like.
I need a contrasting colour for my other wood veneer hearts but did not have the perfect colour for my layout so I created the colour I needed by mixing some of the Bubblegum Colour Spray with some iridescent medium and then simply painted a thick coat over the wood veneer.
For the title I traced around some chipboard letters and then painted with Masking Fluid which I left sit over night to dry. Once dry I painted over the title with Bubblegum Colour Spray mixed with Iridescent Medium. Once dry rub the Masking Fluid off with your finger to show the unpainted white cardstock through. (Have a look at the video above for more detail on using Colour Blast products with Masking Fluid)
The last finishing touch I added using the Colour Blast products was splatters using Road Base Colour Spray over the background cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy my creation and I would love to hear your thoughts.
