Art Journal Page for Colour Blast Australia – Reasons to be happy

Hello my lovelies!!!

I have another project to share with you all today, yesterday it was turn over on the Colour Blast blog and I decided to share one of my art journal pages.

20160916_063327

I had so much fun creating this page using the delicious Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts and Colour Sprays. I love building layers which is what this page was all about.

I wanted to try and use the shimmer dust and colour sprays like watercolour paints because I wanted to go for a softer tone on this page.

Products used:

Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Lush & Sunflower, Colour Blast Colour Sprays – Bubblegum & Carribean, Distress Crayons – Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon, Feathered Peacock & Picked Raspberry, Versacolor Ink – Pinecone & Lapislazuli, White Gesso, Modelling Paste, Black Archival Ink, Dylusions Stamp and Stencil set Quote Medley, The Crafters Workshop Stencil – Mini Specimens, Memory Box stencil – Zippy Dots, Kaisercraft Texture Stamp – Script, Kaisercraft Sticker Sheet – Shine Bright, Distress Marker – Black Soot

Make sure you check out my process video too!!!

More Than Words Challenge September 2016 – Delight Layout

I decided to enter in my first ever challenge!!! I have always wanted to enter a challenge for More than Words but just never got around to it until now. (thanks to my parents for taking the boys for a few house)

At first it had me stumped as what I could do. And then it hit me! My mum’s trifle!!!! This recipe is definitely a family favourite, there is no jelly or alcohol in it but the marshmallows that she does put in makes it such a delight to eat!!!

It was so nice to be able to use these colours as you all know having 3 boys I don’t get to scrapbook much using pinks so I was super happy with how the layout turned out. So let me show you with what I created.

Life is Pretty Amazing Layout for Colour Blast

Good Morning Everyone

Well what a special today it is today…it’s my birthday!!! And what better way to share the love than to share a layout and process video I have created for Colour Blast.

I wanted to create a grungy look to a layout using 2 photo’s I took of Noah at the skate park.

All the papers I used are from Kaisercraft Scrap Yard which is perfect for these type of layouts. I used Stone cardstock as my base and stamped Kaisercraft Graffiti stamp with black archival ink.

I tore 3 sections from the sides that my stamping is and used water to help roll the torn edges

I used Tim Holtz stencil “Cargo” and Colour Blast Shimmer Spray Dusty Charcoal to spray onto my layout.

I then used the reverse side of the stencil as a stamp so that there is no wastage of the spray. 🙂

I used both my finger and a baby wipe to spread on Colour Blast Leather paste onto my chipboard which is from Imaginarium Designs – Clock and Compass.

While it was still wet, I sprinkled Stormy Weather Embossing Powder randomly as I didn’t want to coat the whole chipboard. To help give it a rusty look, I then sprayed with Shimmer Sprays Dusty Charcoal, Leather and Bling.

I used Bling and Leather Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays on the cog die cuts which I used black cardstock and Sizzix Thinlits Gearhead dies.

I tore and inked all my layers with black ink, added my builders tape which I bought from our local hardware store. I adhered my chipboard and cogs onto the layout.

I splattered the layout using Bling and Leather Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays, Colour Blast Road Base and Lagoon colour spray and white gesso mixed with water.
