ColourBlast Christmas Layout

Hello Colour Blast friends,

Today Amy L here would like to show you how to add a little Mica and Shimmer dust effects to your layouts.

Step 1- Gather together 3 powders of choice. For this layout I have used Colour Watermelon Mica Dust, Colour Polar Mica Dust and Colour Candy Shimmer Dust.

Step 2 - Mix 2 lots of each colour. One set with a larger amount of water creating a duller colour and one set with a smaller amount of water created a stronger colour

 Step 2 - Using a water colour brush spread your duller dust mixture abstractly over the page. Drip in clusters with the stronger colour making sure to spread it outside of your embellishment clusters
 Step 3 - Once dry stick down your desired embellishments and photos. I hope you have a try at this technique.
Stay Scrappy

Bo Bunny Aryia Garden Layout

Hello Bo Bunny friends,

Amy here to show you the fun you can have with the Wax Pastes.

For this layout I wanted to add a little dimensional by spreading the bitumen and metallic Antique wax paste across the page. Now you this will resist water so if you want to add watercolor paint perhaps do that first. Or use it as a resist effect.

I then added my photo and cluster my embellishments so that the paste is not covered. By spacing out flowers you can add a feminine feel to the layout

 And below is the full layout called Wonderful.

Stay Scrappy 

Materials Used - Pentart Antique Wax Paste Bitumen
Pentart Antique Wax Paste Metallic
BoBunny Aryia Garden I Want It All 12" paper x2
Bo Bunny Aryia Garden Poetry 12" Paper
Aryia Garden Noteworthy
Aryia Garden Chipboard

Summer ColourBlast

Hello Sweet Colour Blast Friends,

Amy here with another layout this time adding dimension to your already fabulous traditional scrapbook layout. I am a paper crafter first and was introduced to mixed media by being convinced to join a class with paint and BOOM thats when my world opened up. You can still layer paper and add some dimension with your mixed media. Let me show you how.

With this layout I used Shimmer Dust Lush mixing it with a little water I altered a patterned cardstock by brushing it all over the piece. This brought a different watercolour look the already gorgeous cardstock. I then used Colour Blast Paste called Deep Water and using a sweet flower stencil layered in on several pieces of card stock. Then layering the card stock and matching embellisments. I created the above layout

The great part about colourblast paste is the more intricate the stencil the better the design. This is a sweet perfect flower that is a beautiful contrast against the white cardstock.

Materials Used

Colourblast paste and shimmer dust
Cocoa Vanilla Summer Range
Studio 1440 flair
Cutfile from Silhouette America

Stay Scrappy

Always and Forever Bo Bunny

Hello BoBunny friends,

Amy with you today showing you how to create a gorgeous layout using the fabulous Petal Lane collection. And then using Pentart Lasur paint to show you how you can add extra dimension to your paper.

Lets begin Layout 1
When creating with your dies or cutfiles remember you can always layer underneath to fill the gaps. This cutfile I used 2 other pieces of cardstock both sides to fill in the flower.

Now Layout 2 - Fussy fussy fussy cut
This is for the paper hoarder like myself who always gets 2 of every cardstock. I fussy cut around the flower borders to create an extra layer for those flowers. You will need to raise your photo onto foam adhesive as well as your fussy cut so you can appreciate the detail later on.

Layout 3 - Lets get messy with Pentart Lasur

No I would like to show you how much fun it is to paint with Pentart Lasur for Interior on you layout to add that va va voom. Instead of using your enamel dots that I know you are keeping use the back of your paint brush and with the pointy end create of dots around your layout. Adding that yellow paint has tied in the other yellow just that little more.

So here you are One Layout 3 ways using Petal Lane and Pentart Lasur.
