'First Swim' by Amanda Lawrence

Hello lovelies!
Our June cybercrop kicked off over in the Scrap Suite on Friday night and despite it being a pretty crazy weekend commitment wise, I did manage to sneak in enough scrappy time to complete a layout ;) 

The challenges are super cool this month ... well they always are lol but Anthea's 'Get Messy' challenge was the one I wanted to tackle first. 

I'm not really a messy scrapper as such, in fact I prefer to admire from afar, but I have vowed to delve into my mediums instead of just collecting the pretty colours so here goes ...

Like I said, I'm not an overly media heavy scrapper but they're there and I wanted the effect to be subtle.

I began by watering down a little bit of colour spray and then used the packaging technique to create a watercolour background. The leftover mist I flicked on with a brush which created the darker spots.
Next I used some colour paste with the abstract waves 5x5 stencil to create the watery feel.

The base of my layers were the super cool bubbles design creative cuts from the store.

After adding some layers of patterned papers, doilies and my photo I went to town with my D-lish bits and pieces adding clusters of flowers, resin, flair and a sequin bow.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your take on one of the challenges in the Scrap Suite soon!
