Santa Barbara Sunshine

Hi everyone! Melissa here for Gina's Designs. I really enjoyed using this chipboard. The swirls and curls fit well with the sunny mood of the photo. 

 I only used a couple steps to make this:

1.Prep with gesso. I applied it with a small wedge of cosmetic sponge. It's faster than using a paint brush.
2. Paint with gold leaf paint.
3. Put a layer of glossy accents on.

Thanks for looking!

This is a photo of my Mother-In-Law that I took at a botanical garden in Santa Barbara, California.
I thought it was pretty seeing her with the perspective the path and trees around it created.  I also like the sunlight showing through the leaves.  I remember it was dry and warm that day.  Typical weather there.
