Paint for Colour Blast

Hey Everyone

For my Colour Blast Blog post this week I couldn't decide which photo I like so I did both as they were both to do with paint

You will find the Colour Paste here at the Colour Blast shop or find your nearest Stockist here

Colour Paste Canvas

So for the first canvas after painting with White Gesso  I used the Colour Paste as a paint rather than a paste to paint my very uneven stripes the colours I used are - Apple of my Eye, Blush, Fire Engine, Singin the Blues, Sunshine and Tangerine Dream I did two coats so the colours came out intense like they do when you use them as a paste through a stencil

I also painted the paintbrush that was covered first in BlackGesso which makes the colours look different - I used Fire Engine, Sunshine and Apple of my Eye

Then to do the stencilled dots I used Colour Paste Stormy Weather

I added a few embellishments like the transparent butterfly and the Today which I've had forever I think they were Heidi Swapp 
The dotted card I'm not sure if it's Project Life or Kaiser and then the words are from Tim Holtz's Small Talk sticker book
The paint Brush I just added some flowers and a butterfly that I can't remember where it came from I've had it that long 

Colour Shimmer Cubes Canvas

The second Canvas I splattered the watered down Colour Shimmer Cubes over the canvas after painting it with White Gesso the colours I used are - Apple of my Eye, Fire Engine, Punch, Singin the Blues, Sunshine and Tangerine Dream

Then to do the little frame from Memory Maze I used Colour Shimmer Cube Leather

I painted a small piece of watercolour paper with Tangerine Dream Sunshine and Singin the Blues and used a flower sticker I've had for ever I think it came with the green butterfly from the other canvas and the butterfly on this canvas

I had some old paint brushes that I dipped in the same three colours so it looked like they were the brushes I used to paint the canvas then put a few flowers across the bottom 

I also used another card this time stripes from either Project Life or Kaiser with a Small Talk sticker quote

I had a little clear arrow I've had in my stash for ever - these canvases have been great for using up older pieces 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon x


Sound of Music for Helmar

Hey Everyone

My turn on the Helmar blog this time and I created a tribute to The Sound of Music but more so my favourite song from the movie 
I don't know why I love this song so much maybe because it bring the family back together I'm not sure
I also have little tributes to My Favourite Things and Do-Re-Me on there as well
I couldn't leave them off as they are some of the popular songs from the movie and when you hear them it makes you think of the movie

On the little flowers I used white flocking powder because the Edelweiss flowers look like they are fluffy so I use the Craft & Hobby PVA Glue to adhere the flock to the flowers

On the little stamens I used Colour Blast Colour Mica Powder in Olive dipping them in the Tacky Craft Glue first then dipped them in the Mica Powder 

Once they were dry I used the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to glue them to the flowers

After the glues were dry on the flowers and stamens I then took them outside and sprayed them with the Crystal Kote Fixative Spray because of the Mica powder and the flocking powder I wanted to make sure they didn't come off

I used Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust Candy to colour the white flowers I had
I also used the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to the flowers to make it look like rain drops on roses 

Like always I used the Acid Free Glue on my photos

I found some of the word from the song off the internet so I printed it off on photo paper

I had a metal hat I couldn't find a straw colour like Maria's hat so I used Vintage Silk Finnabair Wax

In the background you can see sheet music which is the music from the song Edelweiss  
I used the Memory Maze Madala Doily Stencil with some 3D Matte Gel 
Then for some colour I used Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink 

Here's a close up of the Raindrops On Roses unfortunately you can see the bubbles from the glue but I still like that it looks like they are wet

Here you can see some of My Favourite Things - Bright Copper Kettle (I used Rich Copper Cinnabar Wax), Brown Paper Package, Raindrops on Roses
On the frame I randomly used Icy Snow Paste and Finnabair's Art Stones which were stuck down with Tacky Craft Glue everything else was stuck down with 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

And here - Do a Deer a Female Deer , So a Needle Pulling Thread, La a Note to Follow So
On the edge of the frame I used Rose Gold Finnabair Wax

On this Memory Maze Criss Cross Mini Heart I used Fire Ruby Finnabair Wax it has such a beautiful shimmer to it 
On the little bow I used Colour Blast Colour Artist Ink Calypso

Love for Art and Soul Studio

Hey Everyone 

This is my first post with Art and Soul Studio and I'm so excited to be here
Make sure you check out the Store for all the awesome products and the Blog for the fabulous projects that the Design Team create

I started off by using clear gesso over the paper then cut out one of the circle it has words of love on it
I then used some Helmar Tacky Craft glue and a scrap of cardstock to cover the whole as I wanted to raise to cut out piece up with some cardboard
I then glued the cut out circle to the Petite Resin Round Frame
I then used the 3D Matte Gel through the Bohemian Bazaar stencil randomly over the 13 @Arts paper
I painted the Colour Blast Leather Colour Shimmer cube over the stencilled areas and then over all the circles

I painted my paper clay piece with the Leather shimmer cube

 I poured some of the Patina powder out and added water to make a paint
It made it look old which is what I wanted
I then rubbed some of the wax over the top of the clay just enough to get the parts that stood out

I then used the pink and painted the paper clay flowers the same way

I tried a darker wax but it didn't look good so I used a wipe and it came off 
I liked the look of it as it was so I left it that way
I used the Leather Shimmer Cube to paint the frame as well and rubbed the brass wax just over the flowers

Before glueing the embellishments down I used the muslin down across the paper making sure to hide the hole that I'd cut out

I glued the bling into the centre of the spoon then glued the pebble to the top of the bling once they were stuck together I glued them down

I covered the metal word with the brass wax as well and then glued it to the paper clay 

I then placed the other embellishments down on the muslin once I was happy with everything I added the Art Stones randomly over the page
