Hi, Melissa here with a page featuring chipboard by Gina's Designs Lasercuts. This is a sheet of watercolor paper I first sprayed with  water , then Dylusions ink spray . On the chipboard I used gesso, then painted them with different colors of Perfect Pearls. The texture on the right is made with gloss gel using chipboard as stencils.  I painted the dry gel with lumieres, and decoart pens. I was inspired by Nancy Smiths recent page using this months sketch.  I aimed for a cleaner design than usual.

The story behind this photo is that my husband came home from work, woke me up , and took this shot.  I was a little embarrassed to be caught napping.  My favorite dreams are ones where I fly,and I think my pages look like its underneath water or in the air, so this fits. I really enjoyed working on this page, I love watercolor paper,  the chipboard is so much fun to play with, and this photo brings back a lot of good memories.

  This is a little house we rented in the 80's in Northport,Long Island, NY.  Shortly after, we moved to California.
