The first set shows my layout with my camera's flash on while the second set shows my layout without the flash.
The camera's flash really brings out the Golden Glass Bead Gel's shine and the Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink "Watermelon" glitter.
Before I go any further, I want to share this strange coincidence that happened when I began this layout...
While working on the background, I decided "spur of the moment" to use my knife to apply gesso - one of my goals is to one day be able to create the sorts of backgrounds that Lisa Griffith makes in many of her layouts. I have tried so many times on scrap paper, yet I haven't had the guts to just try it on an actual layout until this one. Right after I did that part of the video, I took a break, went on facebook, and saw that Lisa will be designing for 13@rts! You can see Lisa's first 13@rts layout using the Aura Rosa collection here. So congratulations to Lisa for being the new addition to the 13@rts DT. (Now three of my most favorite mixed media artists design for 13@rts!)
Anyhow, here are pictures of my layout without my camera's flash:
