I love playing with patterned papers, but I also love using white cardstock. I guess I can then go crazy with mixed media products, with some of my favourites coming from the amazing Australian owned and made brand Colour Blast. They have the most gorgeous shimmers to a lot of their products and the colours.... WOW!!!
To create my layout I have used many many Colour Blast products for my layout, including Colour Paste, Shimmer Cube, sprays and Embossing paste.
After adding some of the Heavy White Gesso to my cardstock and allowing to dry, I added some water to the Blush shimmer cube and then using a flat head paint brush added it to my white cardstock. Being impatient I assisted the drying with my heat gun. I added some splatters using the sprays, but only just lightly.
I do love stamping on my backgrounds when using white cardstock to add some interest and here I have used several different stamp sets from 49 and Market.
Next, using a stencil and the Snow White colour paste I added some dimension to the page. Taking a second stencil, and this time a Distress Ink stamp pad, I added the cross highlights to the background.
I can't help but added some flower clusters around the page :)
I absolutely love the wood veneer diamond cut-outs so I had to add some to my page. I used some of the embossing powder to them using Versamark ink and heat setting it. Isn't the shimmer gorgeous.
My 'shine' title I used the shimmer cube in Dusty Charcoal to colour it.
I am so happy to say I have returned to my happy place..... my craftroom. It is so nice to create what I want when I want and with products I love to play with.
Thank you again for dropping by. I hope to be here a little more regularly in the future.
See you next time :)
