Lindys Stamp Gang and Imaginarium blog hop

Lindy's Stamp Gang Blog hop
by Sue Smyth 
The Lovely soft colours of spray mists just lend themselves to girly pages. I wanted to 
play with pleated paper this year, so this is my first layout with that in mind.

Using a softly patterned paper as a base, I have used texture paste to 
create more detail and texture in my background. When dry, brush over 
with gesso and spray Lindy's stamp gang mists over top. 
I have used Gag me with a spoon grey, across the top.
And Shabby Turbine teal at the bottom,
 with a little Sweet Violet purple teal around the middle.

One other thing I have done here is spray the surface with a 
paper lacquer spray such as Krystal Kote
 and sprinkled with a coarse round white glitter.
Then I  have sprayed the surface again.
this creates an awesome circular pattern. Each
tiny piece of glitter has a kind a halo effect around it.
You can just see it on the right below. 

To alter the chip, I have used Desert Mean Turquoise Embossing powder. I found
it better if you added a undercoat of white gesso to get a true colour.
You can see the Cosmic pink blue has gone a little purple because 
I did not paint the chipboard first.

I have painted the butterflies with white gesso and applied Cosmic pink blue
embossing powder, while still hot I have sprinkle
over a little white glitter for sparkle.

Handy hint..apply several coats of embossing powder for a full glossy look.
