Barely Blue with Laura

Scrapbook Sessions

Hi there, Laura here.

A new (well, new-to-me!) colour of Dazzlerz paste and a free sample of water colour paints means an experimental layout…

I have Barely Blue, and true to it’s name it is barely blue!  It is wonderful soft colour.  I spread some around on my background card stock to add interest and shimmer.

Then I played with some watercolours and a Juliana Michaels cut file.  I had the wrong settings or my blade was wearing out, and it had not cut perfectly.  In most areas the cut line held the watercolour inside giving me a white border to each butterfly.

I gathered up sequins from loads of collections, just picking a few of each, in colours that matched my butterflies.  I also coloured a doily to match too, and layered it under my photo.

It certainly is experimental but I like the effect of the Dazzlerz roughly spread in the background with a cut file layered over the top.  I also love the coloured doily… but I already knew that!  I’ve just ordered some more as I keep colouring them and have very few white ones left!!

Thanks for stopping by
