You are my happy - Mood Board Inspiration with Amy Prior

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing my take on the current Mood Board challenge which has been designed by the amazing Peg Hewitt! Here is the mood board and you can check out the challenge details by clicking here

Here is my take on the challenge for this month:

To create this layout, I have started off with a piece of  American Crafts 12x12 Double Thick white cardstock which I have sprinkled some some amounts randomly of Colour Blast - Shimmer Dust - PeacockColour Blast - Shimmer Dust - Lush, and Colour Blast - Shimmer Dust - Navy onto.

I have then sprayed some water over the top of the dry powder to activate the coloured pigment and shimmer. Avoid spraying too much water as you don't want the colours to mix too much with each other. 

If the colour is not intense enough, simply sprinkle some more of the Shimmer Dusts over the top until you get the desired effect. You may need to add more water if there is not enough to activate the additional powder.

If there are chunky areas of powder, simply spray more water on those areas to disperse. When the background is completely dry, spray some more water over the top to get this cool bleached effect. The result is a super fun mottled watercolour background!

I have finished off this layout with various Dear Lizzy - Happy Place - Patterned Papers layered, Dear Lizzy - Happy Place - Die-cut Phrases, alongside some die cuts and flowers from my personal stash.

The complete product list for this layout includes...

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time, happy scrapping!
