This months challenge at HappyDaze is an "Explosion of Colour" and is a theme I have really struggled with.

I love colour as much as the next person but I like my colours to compliment and co-ordinate, finally after a period of crafters block I was inspired by a photo on Pinterest.

I cannot claim the credit for the Colourful Doiley Bunting idea, but I did come up with the idea of using Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Mists all on my own!

The transformation from cream to gleam was instant and incredibly satisfying...and my bunting looks as bright and kitch as a 50's Tupperware party......which is exactly how I wanted it to look!

I think I may now be a convert to brightly coloured doileys as you can see the beautiful patterns more clearly and truly appreciate the work that someone has put into making them.

Cosmic Shimmer Mists are available in a huge range of colours from only £2.95 each.

You can enter this months competition and find the rules here, to have a chance of winning a £15.00 voucher to spend in the HappyDaze shop.

Good Luck

Come fly with me....

Pink Paislee papers (from Happy Daze), have come up trumps again for me with the Amber Road range. 
 There are some rich, elaborate autumnal papers in the collection that reminded me of a Scottish Hunting Lodge at christmas.

The super cute reindeer antlers are also from Happy Daze and only cost 35p each.

I inked and glittered the naked wood.
