ART Layout

This layout I designed for Rainbow Splendour for my share this month.  I was inspired by the triangles on the pin.

So, I used impasto paste through a Flutterby Designs stencil and then sprayed co-coordinating colours of Colour Blast Colour Spray over the top.  The trick is to make sure you dry each colour before adding the next.  This limits the amount of colour mixing that happens.  It still mixes just not as much.

For some reason this photo looks a little dull but in real life it is pretty cool.

Here are a few close ups too:

I have some big things happening down the track so I am in the process of getting my layouts sorted and shared rather than having them sit waiting.  Waiting for what I have no idea maybe just time to sit down and blog them.  I am currently waiting for another process video to save, so why not blog and share these layouts especially as this one is a perfect Rainbow Splendour share.  Check out those wood veneer planes.  My favourite of all the RS woods.


This is a heavy mixed media background with lots of texture so I kept the veneer raw to make it pop.

I have a few Rainbow Splendour goodies up my sleeve this week and here is another.


This one was made from the “boy” kit – “must Dash” and it features lots of layers and mixed media.  For something a little different I started with some grey cardstock.  Now I take another look at it, the layout is a bit chaotic but really that’s what boys are so I am really happy with it.

Here are a few close ups.  I pretty much annihilated the kit.

This week I will be sharing some things for my Design Team share for Rainbow Splendour.  Today is the first of a few shares, this one is using the Girl Kit “Everyday Moments”.  I say girl kit because the way the two kits are designed is one is to lend more towards either sex but honestly they can be mixed up and used however you choose.

This is my layout.


I have had this photo printed for a long time but hadn’t found the right things to go with it.  I loved the fact that this kit was blue but very girly, so I took that as an opportunity to use heaps of blue and add accents of yellow.  The background flowery paper from Studio Calico helps girl-a-fi the layout too.

Here are a few close ups.


There is a process video so you can watch all the work that goes into the background.  I’ll be honest, that is the most time consuming part.  The kit does all the hard work of matching embellishments so you can focus your energies on everything else.
