A Page Just for Fun

Hello Everyone!
I am back trying to post more regularly and as I had a little play on the weekend, I had something to share. So here is my latest, just for fun layout. I have been playing with those pesky flakes again, cannot help it, I just adore the look they create.



I had this background done for a week or so and I loved it so much I did not want to mess with it until I bonded fully! 


Loads of paint, flakes and a touch of texture with a stencil and texture paste. I wanted to replicate the ripples in the water behind my niece in the background, then chose the chipboard pieces for the same reason, I just tried to get random organic shapes.


The chippies are from Scrap FX and the flakes are by Indigo Blu. I painted the background using my favourite colour combo then added the flakes in a random manner. I then dwelt on what to do next for a few days, and felt it was a little flat so went with some subtle texture paste script using a Crafters Workshop Stencil.


Once that was done the rest was easy peasy chippie alterations to blend with the background....yes got out those flakes again, seriously addicted! 


A few more paper layers, micro beads, fibres and liquid pearls and I needed to STOP!!!... before totally ruining the background I loved so much.



I really enjoyed the process of not being tied to a deadline or a challenge for a change and cleared the creative cobwebs for a bit, highly recommend just getting back to creating for the enjoyment, did me the world of good.....all ready to tackle some DT commitments again. Very soon they are all done, so I have no idea what is next, any ideas??? Anyone need a messy gal? Better get my act together and start applying to calls .....or should I just Play? Hmmm something to ponder over the next few weeks! 
Enough of a ramble, thanks for stopping by my Lovelies, see you all next time I am back here with something to share! 
Hugs
