More CSI inspiration with the new kits!

Hi Leo here again.
There's another challenge up on the Colour, Stories, Inspiration site this week and lots of the colours in the case file are in this months' new kits so I've had a go at creating a layout following the case file and trying out a few ideas I wanted to play with.
Here's the latest CSI case file:
Here's the layout I've made using a mix up of bits from the main kit 'Beachy Peachy' and the embellishment kit 'Tide Pool'.

I thought the white crepe paper would make nice fluffy clouds so I hand cut some cloud shapes out to use as embellishments:

The greeny blue, navy and yellow from the case file colours I added to the 'painterly' pattern paper from the main kit just using a small amount on the dry foam brush and brushing it over the paper. Once it was dry I then went over the top with some of the Heidi Swapp colour mist from the main kit and found that the acrylic paint acts like a resist the acrylic paint colours come through the mist and makes an interesting effect.

Do have a play around with the mist and the colour shine mist in the main kit to create paint effects as well as using it as a spray. To paint with it, shake up the bottle really well first to mix in the mica and then pour out a little onto a saucer, dip in the foam brush and then paint away!
Hope you're having fun with your new kits!
x Leo
