A Burst of Colour...

Good morning all, ...here we are we made it to Saturday....

I have been up early , walked the dogs, done last bits of painting in the spare room and I just have time to have a coffee and chat before Karl and me head off to the Lowry Theatre to watch their production of Wicked....I am so excited....I have been looking forward to this for months...

I do hope you have a lovely weekend planned...what are you up too???

So the question is what to chat about today...?

Well I have just been introduced to powder paints in the form of Color Burst....and on sale on the Clarity website...

Now this is the first time I have used them so please be gentle with me...they are similar to the Brusho powders that are very popular at the moment....

Anyway here is what I came up with and I hope you approve...

I start with a piece of gelli card....now you have two options here...you can wet the paper and add the powder....or as I did add some powder then spritz.....these bottles are designed really well so that you can easily control the amount of powder..

I used one colours ta time....

Then the magic when you spritz...

And another colour..

And more water...

Three is always good ...so a third colour is introduced.

A quick dry then some faux bleaching using Jo's Bubbles stencil and some water....I do love this effect...

Next , I added my main image using Black Archival ink...( I wanted a strong contrast )

Yes....I am liking that....

Then I added a Wee Girl and some white gel pen dots.

Some letters.....Bakers twine....

And there we have it.....

I can thoroughly recommend these powders and I have lots of other techniques using them that I will share with you over the next few weeks...

Must go ....need to put some lipstick on...

Enjoy your day....and pop back soon..

Much love

Jo. xxxx
