With this page I am telling a bit of a cute & funny story about my big boy and my baby nephew!! My big boy is OBSESSED!! Which, of course, is ADORABLE! On Christmas Day when my sister and her family showed up Jacob totally doted all over his cousin. After most people left Jacob hogged him on the couch and asked him repeatedly for kisses and as we all know kisses from an 8 month old are open mouthed with grabby hands!! But Jacob sat and giggled through it all, he LOVED his cousin’s undivided attention!
Next I activated 2 of my Colour Shimmer Dusts – Amber and Sunflower by adding a little water and some more powder to my little paint palette.
And some splatters! I used my pipette (I wanted bigger splats!) and both of the same Colour Shimmer Dusts again – Amber and Sunflower. I also used a paint brush to add lots of little splatters of the Sunflower. I love how using only 2 colours I get so many different variations of the same colour, even in the splatters! I found the Sunflower dried more mustard-y when I dried it with the heat tool and more yellow when I let it air dry!
Time to stick it all down!
And work on my title! I picked some resist alphas and used my Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust to paint them black and also to add some splatters all around my page – remembering to cover my photo!!
I added my journalling and date and my page was done!
I am so pleased with how this came together and would like to share that I got the idea of colouring my circles – I hadn’t got that far in my design idea when I stamped a couple of weeks ago – from the talented Marta from Maremi SmallArt on YT.
And here are some close up’s of the finished page! I tried REALLY hard to get the shimmer of the dusts but it’s tricky to catch on the camera!
I did start this page KNOWING I was challenging myself to use some different colours to what has become my standard choice over the last little while and LOVE the brightness and shimmer I got using the Colour Shimmer Dusts!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again later in the month!
