Colour Blast Design Team Entry 2016

Here is my application for the Colour Blast call..
I was super excited when I won some of the fabulous Colour blast products colour paste,embossing powder and shimmering mist from a challenge I had entered a few months ago at Kraft plus 
I couldn't wait to play with some new mixed media products and I absolutely love using the colour bast paste it makes great backgrounds with stencils and drys fast . 
This was my first play with all 3 products 

Since this layout I've used it on some others but I can only share a peek 

Here are some other projects I've created using embossing,sprays and texture paste
I really love getting a little messy 

This tag was a fun tag to make coloured sprays mixed with a clear medium 
Embossing with stamps and misting on paper clay

Dream Catcher | Kaisercraft

Hi ..
Today I'm sharing a dream catcher I created for our dream catchers Kaisercraft post
I had a wire ring lying around that I was going to get around to using and it was the perfect size to create the dream catcher 
I wound normal copy paper around the wire ring until it was all covered 
Then I cut a bit of patterned papers to go on the back side of the ring and then die cut 
The ornate charm die in the pink patterned paper and added it to the background to give it that laced look..ext I fussy cut out some flowers and layered them onto the diecut ornate 

Then I added some collectables and and some rhinestones 
Before gluing done the collectables I poked 3holes in the bottom of the dream catcher circle and added some twine beads and more collectables 
Then I glued down the rest of the collectables,feathers ,flower and leaves

Ps I'm pretty sure if my daughter Eve keeps on claiming all my creations she won't have any room left on here walls in her room lol...

Stuck Sketches Guest Design Team

I'm super excited to be guesting over at stuck for sketches this month 
When I first looked at the sketch I was thinking lots of white space but I just recently received 
Some colour blast products and I couldn't wait to play with it and some fabulous 2crafty chipboard 

So here is the fun sketch pop on over and check out the inspiration from the DT 

I went a little more mixed media on this layout then I normally do and I love how it turned out
The photo on the layout is a wide shot of my mum and Bobby fishing 
 I think this layout would look lovely in a frame..

I used all 3 products from the colour range of the colour blast the paste,embossing powder and mist
I also used some of the little cut outs from another layout I created using my cameo
Adding a little bit of ink to the edges to contrast with the beautiful patterned papers from Prima salvage district .

I used the embossing powder on the flowers of the chipboard 
The paste in the background using a stencil 
And flicked the mist in the background over the top of the stencilled paste

I also used some stamps on my background around the edges of the stencilled paste
The 2 crafty chipboard is fits perfectly around the photo tucking the tail end of the chipboard behind the photo gives it that wonderful cluster on the side of the photo, topped off with one of those beautiful flowers from Prima the gold kiss box flowers I did remove the center of the flower and used it on a card so no waste their.. I tucked a few stamped clocks under my photo and cluster and under my title 

Supplys used
Kaisercraft patterned paper 
Prima marketing salvage district 
Prima Fairy Bella journaling cards
Kaisercraft stamp
Kaisercraft stencil
Prima flowers
Colour blast

watercolour turtle Squirt

So last night I was totally bored so while hubby was watching his footy I decided to
Have a play with my watercolour Derwent Academy pencils I'm not really sure if I'm liking them 
As much. But the colours do blend but maybe I might get some other brands to try out as their are quite a lot of other brands out there, I've seen a lot of people using the Prima watercolours I think I would love to try them next so they are on my list of to buy next.

I'm a big fan of the Schmincke kademie Aquarell watercolours as I have a 12 small pans
And they are amazing watercolours and so smooth, bendable and vibrant I guess it is to do with the watercolour paper you use I did use the Canson Aquarell watercolour A4 pad 200gsm with my turtle it's not bad and holds a bit of water and is not bad with mixedmedia as I have scraped with it in A3 size cut down to 12x12 as I will share soon ...
