Air Con Selfies by Krisy Podolak

Hi Colour Blast Lovelies,

Krisy back again today to share with you a layout I created inspired by a pattern from within my photo.  This layout features a series of photos of my daughters taking "selfies" of themselves using a toy mobile photo and the HOT air from the Air Conditioning unit.  It was a really hot day and the air blasting from the unit was HOT but they thought it made them beautiful.

My daughter Poppy, is wearing a playsuit with a paisley type pattern on it so I decided I would try and mimic this in my layout.
This is my layout.

I used a Damask stencil and some Impasto paste to create a base pattern.  The Impasto paste drys almost like plastic and is shiny.  I knew that this would resist Colour Shimmer Dust.  The colour would take around it and probably a little bit on the Impasto paste but not enough to hide the pattern.  I used a palette of Midnight and Lollipop Colour Shimmer Dusts to create a wash over the Impasto pattern.  I used a lot or water and worked quite quickly to allow the colours to mix and blend.

Once I was happy with the blending, I dried it with a heat gun before stamping over the top with some permanent ink and a range of stamps.

Here are a few close ups:
You can really see the shimmer in this photo.

In the image below you can see how the colour has bled a little under the Impasto paste but it has mainly resisted it.

There is a process video to go with this layout so head over to POPLEOPOD on YouTube to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Krisy xx
