(to create the background) - I started by cutting some patterned papers into strips and then adhering them to a sheet of chipboard.Next, I used a small palette knife to pick up some gesso and placed a glob of it on my non-stick craft sheet. Then I used a plastic card to pick up some of the gesso and gently scrapped it back and forth on to my papers until I was satisfied with the results. After it dried, I sprayed some shimmer mist around the page. I varied the weight of my finger on the top of the spray bottle so that sometimes I applied a fine mist, and sometimes I ended up with larger puddles of the ink. I also dipped my art toothbrush into a small portion of ink that I had sprayed onto my craft mat and then splattered more of it around the page while brushing my fingers across the bristles.
I applied a digital frame to the bottom three pics before I printed it out. I used alcohol ink to color the clear plastic embellishments. I applied distress stickles to the title letters and also around the edge of the layout.
