Bloom with Color Bursts and Want2Scrap Bling!

Today I am sharing another mixed media canvas from my Instagram 100 day project!  It features Want2Scrap bling and absolutely blooms with color courtesy of Ken Oliver's Color Bursts! What are Color Bursts?  They are small bottles of pigment powder that pack a real punch when you add water!

I created a background on my mini canvas using Violet and Ultramarine Blue Color Bursts pigment powder.  I started by misting the canvas with water then I tapped out a tiny bit of each powder.   As the color started to develop I tilted the canvas back and forth.  I also used a wet paintbrush to move the water color around a little bit.  I even had fun with my heat gun, blowing the color around a bit more before finally drying the canvas.

I used an adhesive alpha to add the word "bloom".

Using a baby wipe, I gently patted the area over and around the letter stickers, removing a layer of color.

When I peeled the letters off, the darker original color reveals the word.

Next I applied purple ink through the Mosaic stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs.

Love the result!!  Now it is ready  for some pictures and embellishments!

As I was working on this canvas, I found that I used way too much water and Color Burst color!  I used a paper towel to wipe the excess up off of my craft mat and quite frankly I decided all of that gorgeous color was to good to waste!

I used a die to cut out lots of flowers so I could layer them together...

...and added an 8mm Orange Rhinestone from Want2Scrap in the center!

The final touch is a small piece of the Fancy That Bling Border from Want2Scrap and added that to the canvas!
