Fabulous by Amy Prior

Hi there Colour Blast fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, sharing a fun mixed media layout created using some of my fave Colour Blast products!

Here is a quick step-by-step on how I created this layout...

Step 1: Cut some strips of old book paper, then adhere onto some Bazzil Marshmallow Cardshoppe Cardstock using some Gel Medium. Be sure to cover the bookpaper with gel medium to seal as well.

Step 2: Mix some White Heavy Gesso with water to create a wash and then cover the book paper entirely with the wash. Paint the whole 12x12 cardstock with the wash also to avoid any seams where the gesso and plain cardstock meet.

Step 3: Using the tip of a palette knife, scoop tiny amounts of Peacock  Colour Shimmer Dust and sprinkle over the background paper. 

Step 4: Using a spray bottle, spray some water over the Colour Shimmer Dust to react it. Avoid spraying too much water so you get this fun mottled look. 

Step 5: Let the background dry naturally then spray small amounts of water over any piles of powder that are still clearly visible.

To finish this layout off, I have added lots of layers of gorgeous We R Memory Keepers papers underneath my photo.

Lots of gorgeous butterflies were fussy cut from the We R Memory Keepers collection called Inked Rose. 

The finishing touches on this layout included some Simple Stories Reinforcers which are so much fun to add as little decorations on a page.

I have doodled around the edges of reinforcers with a black thin sharpie to help them pop off the background a little more.

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
