Texture, flicks, and drips!

Hi everyone! Heidi here, with a layout that I had a blast making. Offered within the Swirlydoos January monthly kit, the palette within these BoBunny papers is so interesting and so I chose colors that coordinated from Shimmerz to enhance the project. I used Treasured Hymn Spritz, Sea Monkey, Jeni B Bleu, and Before Dawn Vibez, and Choc-O-Lot Shimmerz.

To create a fun texture in the background, I smeared gesso on randomly with an old credit card - then spritzed on my Jeni B Bleu and Sea Monkey. Then after adding all the elements, I painted the edges of my photo - distressing it -  with Treasured Hymn and then flicked the tube of the nozzle to add bits of the color elsewhere.

Then to finish the project off, I dripped my Choc-O-Lot Shimmerz in various places around the clusters that I had created. What I first thought to be an awfully retro color scheme - seems so beautiful now!!
xx Heidi
