This weeks color palette is just divine.
Louise Nelson is the Guest Designer this week and her layout is simply stunning.
This is the palette that Lou had to work with this week.The Imaginarium Chipboard that Louise has used is something that she designed herself and it is one of my new faves (along with the Peacock Feather)
Louise has done a detailed Step by Step on how she created this beautiful page.

Vintage Findings word fetti – Making Memories
I first glued the chipboard hessian square to the background using a glue stick.
I then mixed some cream paint in with the gesso before applying it to background.
Place a few dollops of paint/gesso mix on to the background and chipboard embellishment.
Using a coarse foam roller, roll out and cover the layout background and chipboard with the paint/gesso mix.
Don’t over roll the paint/gesso mix otherwise you will loose the lovely coarse bubble effect of the paint and gesso.
I usually use mists, but for this particular colour combination I needed to mix some pink paint with water and put it into a spray bottle to get a colour match.
This was then sprayed liberally over the chipboard embellishment.
This is a close-up of the final paint effect on the background and chipboard.
CONGRATULATIONS to Louise for being the Guest Designer this week.
