Hi everyone!

Today I am with you to show you my latest creation made with the beautiful Island Paradise Collection. It’s been a long time since I wanted to use this photo on a layout but I did not find the ideal collection, but I think I found! Below, I explain to you a bit about how I created my layout.

As always, I began with a layer of clear gesso all over the background paper. Then I stamped here and there with the Rations Stamp and blue gilding polish. I made a watercolor effect with the same blue gilding polish. I used lots of laser cuts from the Island Paradise Collection, I tinted cheese cloth with Liquid Acrylic Umber diluted with water, put some here and there in flower arrangements. I colored small white flowers with yellow watercolor and I used the beautiful Stargazers flowers.

On the fishing net chipboards I put some embossing powder, on the chipboard title I put some blue Gilding Polish with a sponge and on the chipboards of grass I used green texture paste and acrylic paint. I stuck mega, medium and small 3D Balls and micro beads with medium gel. And finally I made drops here and there with Liquid Acrylic Umber and White Splash! Ink.
