Delight layout | Colour blast DT

Hi ...
sharing my second post for this month for colour Blast
With this layout I wanted to use some of the color shimmer sprays with the colour paste 
using purple and yellow colour tones and a touch of pink
I started with a simple design idea in mind going across the page

Starting with the colour paste first with a stencil
Picking random spots down across the page

Here is my process video 

I hope you enjoyed my video 
I really how sublime the the sunshine colour shimmer spray giving it that beautiful 
Light yellow tone across the page

With the brighter tone of the sunshine colour paste 
It looks amazing in real life.
I also used some of the butterflies leftover from my last layout that I embossed
With the sunshine embossing powder 
And that added touch of pink on the chipboard heart corner 
using the lovely rose petal embossing powder for that extra touch of colour 

My photo was the inspiration for the colours
A beautiful vine growing in our garden 

And I thought I would share how I made my flowers shimmer 
and here is a little flower tutorial using the Colour mica powder 

Here are the Colour Blast Products I've used
Thanks for checking out my post today I hope I've inspired you with my layout.
To give the awesome colour blast products a go!!

Happy crafting..xx

I've kept it simple and clean with lots of pops of foil

I wanted a subtle colour in the background 

I love the foil doilies and the pattern paper from the paper pad with the little bits
Of foil.

I used a sticker for a title I backed it with pink patterned paper 

I a small cutout bit to the side of my photo to add a bit more colour

Precious Layout | Colour Blast DT

Hi ,
 I'm super excited to be sharing my first project Colour Blast
So today my layout is featuring embossing powder and Colour spray .
Lots of bright colours!!

So for my layout I wanted to get that watercolour look 
blending bubblegum and saffron together 
(Tip ...watercolour paper is best to get this look)
As it won't buckle like normal cardstock and you can really get that colour moving around 
I'm so loving those 2 colours blended together!!

Here is my process video  

I hope you enjoyed my process video 

Another thing  I come across that I've mentioned in my video
while playing and testing the embossing powders I found out that !
(Tip....Kraft chipboard if not painted white or embossed white first is a really dark colour )
How awesome is that 2 colour tones!!

I also used the Apple of my eye embossing powder 
on the little hearts and the stamped leaves 
and you can see the difference between both
 one is lighter stamped on white paper then the other on the 
chipboard and it did the same with the sunshine embossing powder .
So keep that in mind when using Kraft chipboard you can have 2 colour tones from one embossing powder..

So here is a close up on the heart frame embossed with rose petal..
It went a magenta pink because I only put one coat of white on my chipboard  But I'm loving the colour!!

Handsome Gentleman Layout | Kaisercraft

Today I'm sharing a layout created for Kaisercraft using Barber shoppe

I've used a photo of my dad in this photo I think he was about 21 here
I used the black patterned paper as my starting point for this layout 
Then I used the Artfacts gloss as my base I love how the design is light in the background 

I machine stitched a border around the edge
I did lots of layering under my photo with patterned paper and collectables 
And a few stickers

I used collectables as my title and
layered stickers and a collectables on each side of my photo 

I used a few mini white flowers and cotton 
I used the stamp set and stamped the big cog in black ink

At top and bottom of my photo layers giving it a bit of extra texture

August 2 crafty Layouts

Anita here with you today sharing 2 layouts and 2 process videos

"Its A Sister Thing"

For my layout I went for lots of purple,green and white 
Using the darker colour behind my photo 

Here is my process video of my layout.

I used lots of pops of white and purple using embossing and flowers 
And the green ink to break it up a little 

My title pops with the stenciled purple behind it
And the stenciled black ink added a bit more texture to the background 

I added a few bits of embossed vellum under my flowers and behind my photo 
And also added some bling along with a few pearls 

2 Crafty products used

BeadedHanging Heart Set
LeafyShrub Set 2
 It's A Sister Thing

"Hello Beautiful"

With this layout I wanted to use blue and green as my main colours
Having the subtle bluey green watercolor look on my background 

Here is my process video of my layout.

I added the flicks of grey colour blast shimmer to give the background a bit more contrast 

As I wanted it flow across the page the stenciled hearts are subtle 
To add a bit of texture to the background 

I used a darker colour for my title and the lighter colours in the background  
I also added a touch of white ink around the edges of the title

Here is a close up of my big sooky bubba

And a look at my handmade flowers 

Here are the 2 crafty products used
