Scrap Around the World Final Challenge

I was so gutted when I found out that December 2015 would be the final challenge for Scrap Around the World. It is a challenge site I've always enjoyed even if I haven't had the time in recent months to play along. Since it is to be the final month I knew I just had to give it ago. The mood board for the month was ...
When I saw it I just loved the colours. I had a great time creating the back ground using a fantastic new mixed media product called ColourBlast
I've used "Sunshine", "Apple of My Eye", "Rose Petal" and "Bling". I've then stamped butterflies using black Stazon.
To tone down the shimmer and intensity of the Colour Paste I sponged white Gesso over the top using some scrunched up plastic wrap. I added some washi tap and a photo and came up with the end result....
The inspiration for this page was "The Future is Bright" .... I couldn't help up use this photo of my friends helping me get ready on the morning of my wedding .... the future was indeed bright.

Heres a couple close ups of the various aspects of the page ...
This shows the flowers, they were plain white flowers which I have coloured using Colour Blast Paste watered down into a paint ... its a great way to use it as you retain the colour and the shimmer.

In this photo I've tried to capture the white shadow butterfly that I stamped using white ink slightly above the black butterfly, I also love the wording of the stamp above "of course you can fly for dreams have wings".
Colour Blast products are very high intensity colour and shimmer but unfortunately these photos don't do them the justice they deserve.

The following products have been used on this layout ...

  • Darkroom Door Rubber Stamp - Wings DDS091
  • IndigoBlu Rubber Stamp - Big Butterfly BB11
  • Kaiser craft Decorative Die
Well thats all for  now, thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,

Kaye :-)
