Hi, Melissa here with a page featuring chipboard by Gina's Designs Lasercuts. This is a sheet of watercolor paper I first sprayed with water , then Dylusions ink spray . On the chipboard I used gesso, then painted them with different colors of Perfect Pearls. I put a little glossy accents on top to adhere some pearlex powder. The texture on the right is made with gloss gel using chipboard as stencils. I painted the dry gel with lumieres, and decoart pens. I was inspired by Nancy Smiths recent page using this months sketch. I aimed for a cleaner design than usual.
The story behind this photo is that my husband came home from work, woke me up , and took this shot. I was a little embarrassed to be caught napping. My favorite dreams are ones where I fly,and I think my pages look like its underneath water or in the air, so this fits. I really enjoyed working on this page, I love watercolor paper, the chipboard is so much fun to play with, and this photo brings back a lot of good memories.
This is a little house we rented in the 80's in Northport,Long Island, NY. Shortly after, we moved to California.
There are several items here I received from scrappy friends: The corner pieces at upper left and lower right are from Reneabouquet. I painted them gold and teal.
The blue ribbon butterfly to the right of the photo, and the bling leaf at the bottom of the pic are from Abbygirl. The green flower enameled item at the right edge is from my sister. The blue lace to the right of the peach flower is from Quicksilver. The clock face at the left of the pic is from 48SixTime. There are sequins scattered that are also from Abbygirl.
