I am back to share a scrapbook LO that I created for Colour Blast Australia
and a small step by step tutorial on how to create this background!
So without further ado, here is the page in full:
And here is the little step by step:
I wanted to see if I could add a little gold shimmer to the Colour Pastes
that I selected (Deep Water & Singin' the Blues).
So I experimented by adding a touch of gold pigment powder.
It gave the paste a lovely shot of gold so it suited my photo perfectly!
Next I used the pastes through a piece of lace, like you would when using a stencil.
When you pull the lace up you get the lovely textural lace as a print on your page.
I then moved the lace a little and used the pastes in their original form
(without the added gold pigment) on another part of the page.
You can see the colour difference below.
Be sure to wash out the lace before the paste dries,
then you can use it again for another project.
I then splashed a bit of contrasting colour around using Colour Shimmer Sprays
in Rose Petal and Bling.
Then I used the Colour Shimmer Sprays (Rose Petal & Bling)
to colour a few pieces of lace I want to use as embellishments. Then left them to dry.
Then I used a stamp and Archival ink to add some flowery detail to the background.
And your background is complete! All that is left to do is to layer the embellishments
and add the photo!
I have used Chipboard pieces, die cuts out of old book paper and
glitter paper, epoxy dots and the lace of course!
The chippy flowers I treated with Colour Embossing Powders in
Bling and Rose Petal. The #words I painted with black paint.
You can find all the Colour Blast Products I used Here.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you try the background technique on your next project!
