Scrap Around the World November Challenge - Colourful

I've been busy getting my fingers all inky with this latest challenge from Scrap Around The World.

The inspiration from the mood board struck me immediately. I love the paint pouring from the tins, it makes me want to get my hands in there and moosh it all around (there's the child care educator coming out in me!). So I went with a spilled paint affect.

The colours are so vibrant and it's given me an opportunity to try out ALL of my Dylusions Sprays.

The layout is beautiful. I love the half circles. I imagined them as two rainbows on a rainy sunny day. I turned it around to suit what I wanted to create.

This is what I created.

And some close ups.
The 12x12 background paper is a new line from Kaszazz. It has a gloss resist pattern over a standard paper so when it's coloured the pattern resists and stands out.

 Most of the flowers I coloured using the Dylusions. The Half circles are hand drawn on by a medium tip black sharpie pen.

The background is made up of a selection of coordinating papers layered over a water colour painted rainbow.

The black leaves are simply cut out of some black card stock. I also coloured the cheese cloth to match the surrounding flowers along with (and it's a little hard to see) cotton silk thread in coordinating colours.

 I absolutely loved this challenge. These are not colours I have really played with in the past and I can't believe why I hadn't experimented with them before.

 Thanks for checking out my project and don't forget to pop over to my Facebook Page and give me a like. That way you can keep up to date with my creations.
