123 Challenge

Over at 123Challenge this month's  you need to include

Color: LIME
Technique: DOTS

 i started with white cardstock, glue on the photo and added some color around photo.  I overbrushed on the paint so they are no hard edges.

added some interest by adding cris cross marks by applying paint to the edge of my palette knife then to the paper.  Used the same green and also added antique white.
 added varied sized dots with colored modeling paste and stencils.  Add chipboard around the photo, this is a new design of chipboard available on my etsy store, ragged edge.
Painted chipboard green.
(yes i know the picture is blurry)  i added more color blocks with gelatos- teal.  Love gelatos just add a little onto the page then spread it around.  It smears super easy leaves no harsh edges and is translucent but not too translucent.  Also added purple, and teal onto chipboard.

I added some doddling around the dots, or i tried but the one downfall of gelato it is super hard to use a marker on top of it.

The final page, finished with added words, Yesterday, Tomorrow, Today always smile.  Then of course my usual go to- rub ons.

I tend to make little vignettes on my pages and they always turn out to be my favorite parts.
