Hello! The lovely ladies over at the blog Scrap Africa have invited me to 
be a Guest Designer this month using a beautiful and colorful mood board,
and this is what I created....


I started with some Prima paper from the 'Royal Menagerie' collection and then did some masking with heavy white gesso to build up some texture. Then I used some of my new Prima Metallique acrylic paints in 'Lime Peel', 'Rich Turquoise' and 'Gold Rush'. Now I have to say that I am really an ink girl, I use a lot of different inks and sprays from a lot of different manufacturers, but I am totally head over heels in love with these Prima paints. The colors are so rich and beautiful, with an almost iridescent sheen to them. I mixed a little bit of paint with just a little bit of water and they were so fun to work with. You can get a really light look like I have done here, or use less water for a more saturated color.
I have to have every color of these paints :)

Here is the mood board:

I was inspired by the beautiful colors and the saying,

Isn't this 2 Crafty Chipboard piece gorgeous? It's called 'Ornate Door',
and I thought it looked so pretty as a kind of doorway into which my photo was leading.
I covered it in thick white gesso, heated it until it bubbled and cracked,
and then brushed on some Prima gold paint.

Thank you Denise for having me this month, it was a joy!
