A Pop of COLOUR!

So it's been a while between my day job and all that other stuff that gets in the way I really haven't had much time to post. So today I want to catch up and share some layouts I've recently created using the Heidi Swapp color pop and color shine products.

Oh and a little disclaimer before we go on - I apologise for the interchangeable use of color (the American version) and colour in this post - it was a hard one for me to get my head around as being an American designer Heidi refers to her products as color pop.

In this layout you can see that I've used the Pink Pop resist paper and applied Color Shine to get three different variations which coordinated with the colours in the photo. I used the Black Pop paper to cut out the chevrons.

To get the splatter effect I removed the top of the bottle of the spray and then held the top in my hand and flicked it across the page until I got the desired result. You can see that I've used the same technique below.

So this background completely happened by accident. You know - one of those circumstances where your mistake turns into a masterpiece (well that's what I like to think )! I got my lovely white background dirty so I ended up using the Color Shine mists until I got a result that I was happy with. I layered up a mix of Amy Tangerine - Yes Please and Color Pop papers along with some of the coordinating color pop tags, and Pink Paislee's resist Artisan Hearts.

It pretty amazing to see the large number of products that now incorporate a resist surface so that you can use your mists, inks, sprays and paints to create coordinating pieces. I love this trend and I'm looking forward to seeing how its been adapted in some of the latest CHA (craft and hobby association) releases.

Before I go I want to give a big shout out to my friends Suzie and Taner who have let me use these gorgeous photos of their girls!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and of course Happy Scrapping!!!
