Australian Scrapbook Ideas-Heidi Swapp Color Shine Feature 1


Today I am sharing the first of my projects recently created for Scrapbook Ideas Magazine issue 25, Tried and Tested 'Heidi Swapp Color Shine Feature.

Now, if by chance you haven’t tried Heidi Swapp Color Shine Sprays,  I warn you, once sprayed, you will be hooked. I just love how these 2 oz. bottles combine a vibrant splash of colour with an iridescent shine.

Color Shine can easily colour flowers which is great if you don’t have blooms to suit a project or you just want to add a little intensity to the colour that they already are. The flowers do not necessarily have to be white to start with. I tried them out on Manor House Creations flowers that were already coloured as well as white, both with great results.

Primrose and Mustard Color Shine was used on pale pink Minuettes and yellow Mayglo to add intensity and to co ordinate with the brightly coloured Glitz Designs Wild and Free papers and embellishments. Mustard Color Shine also easily altered smaller white blooms to co ordinate.

The Color Shine colours are intense and easily alter chipboard. For lighter colours I recommend that the chipboard be painted with a coat of white gesso. This just assists with the colour remaining vibrant and not soaking into the material.

A Twiddleybitz chipboard feather was given the Color Shine treatment. The end result is a variegated effect. Primrose and Georgia Peach were randomly spritzed over the front surface. Once dry, a little white gesso was dabbed over some of the areas, with Teal and Mustard adding the finishing colour touches.

A complete step by step for this project is available in Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazine Issue 25.
