There are lots and lots of layers on this layout incorporating the Graphic 45 papers, postcard cutouts, tags & pockets and stickers. I also added lots of bling around the page to embellish the flower and flourish designs in the papers.
I needed a way to make the photo really stand out on these bright/busy papers - so the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard frame was a perfect embellishment to enhance the photo!
I also used an Imaginarium Designs border to anchor the bottom of the layout and balance all the heavy layering at the top. I just love the coordinated border and frame together!
The chipboard elements were first painted with gesso to get a smooth, white base. I then used Faber-Castell Gelatos in Margarita Mix and Gold and rubbed them onto the chipboards with my fingers. Finally, to lighten the effect and reveal some of the white base, I rubbed a finger moistened with water over the chipboards.
