Aqua Wedding

Hi Melissa here with a page using Gina's Designs Lasercuts. I enjoyed working with these colors as usual, and the chipboard seemed to blend nicely with the theme. I used gesso followed by liquid pearls on some, and lumieres on others. To the right of the photo is a fussy cut shape that I painted, and put lots of microbeads on. I wasn't really thinking during the cutting because I was watching tv,and didn't realize it didn't look that good.  Since I spent so much time cutting, I didn't want to waste it by ditching it.  I spent the rest of the time spent on this fixing and working around that one item. I'm happy with the results as my main thing was getting that lavender lace in . I dyed it awhile ago with dylusions ink and have wanted to use it.

3 ATCs: Imagine, Together, and Flight

Hi , Melissa here with 3 ATCs using Gina's Designs Lasercuts. I painted the doilies with lumieres and stickles. I think these images from an old calendar are very pretty, and it wasn't hard to find items from Gina's that went with them. I had fun decorating these with embellies I've collected over time.

Bird's Nest Book Box

Hi, Melissa here with an altered Book Box from Gina's Designs Lasercuts.  I also used items from Craftsupplies 1.

The leaf chipboard are painted with gesso, then watercolors, and topped with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.  The book box was very easy to assemble, and sturdy; it was a pleasure to work with.

The flowers from CS1 took  watercolor tints beautifully. When they were still damp I changed the shape  a little from the original . I love flowers and these were wonderful.
