"I'm Thinking" Layout

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a layout for Gina's Designs. The chipboard here is so beautiful, I tried to do it justice. Here are the steps I used!

For the flourishes:

1. Prep with gesso.

2. Dry brush with lavender acrylic paint.

3. Dry brush with teal acrylic paint.

4. Apply a thin layer of purple Twinkling H20s, so that the colors below still show.

5. Apply a thick layer of crackle accents.

6. Brush on purple-blue mica powder to help the cracks show.

7. Apply some Inka Gold.

8. Brush on a little gold leaf paint.

 For the leaves:

1. Prep with gesso.

2. Paint with green chalk ink.  

3. While wet put on some green and brown watercolor.

4. Ink the edges with a green distress ink pad.

5. Apply a thick coat of crackle accents.

5. Brush on some purple mica powder. 

For the butterfly:

Prep with gesso.

2. Put on lavender chalk ink.

3. While the chalk ink is wet add some purple-blue Twinking H2Os.

4. Brush on some silver mica powder

5. Put on a thick coat of crackle accents.

6. Brush on some purple-blue mica powder

Thanks for looking!
