New Product Highlight - Colour Blast Shimmer Dust

Posted June 20 2016
Hi Everyone, 
A little bit of a different blog post for today!
A product showcase of several new products from the store including the brilliant new Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts that have just arrived fresh of the shelf from the Brisbane Papercraft Expo and lovingly brought back by Amy in her suitcase....
Firstly i will share with you the Art Journal page i created with the Shimmer Dusts and other Colour Blast products. The page is titled ' Dare to dream BIG' and is very colourful.
and here a close up for you to see the gorgeous colour vibrancy of the dusts and the lovely shimmer they have to them.
So i thought i would introduce you to the Shimmer Dusts by showing you the basics first :-) 
There are 6 fresh colours in small pots and they are packaged in a powder form, the good thing about though is that you only need a very small amount with a touch of water. Also you will note that the colour of the powder can be very different UNTIL you add water.... the green colour is called Lush.
Totally different then the powder colour, but so very vibrant Green :-) 
I have completed the test results and this is what all 6 of the powders look like when you add a bit of water to them in a paint palette. You can see how the colour pops off the page.
and to finish i have completed a few small techniques to show you what you can do with the powders apart from my Art Journal page. I have stamped a flower in an Archival ink and then coloured the flower with the purple and blue with a paint brush. I then mixed the red with gesso and painted a textured flower and then used the end of the paint brush to dip in the green to draw the stem and leaves. The last technique is i used the paint brush to pick up the black and put it on my craft mat then used a round plastic container to put in the black ink and then used it as a stamp on the page creating black rings, then dipped my paint brush in the green to colour the circles.
So hopefully this has wet your appetite to perhaps have a try of these awesome new Shimmer Dusts!  
Shop and Crop are now stocking the powders make sure you drop by the shop or order online !!
