Blue Eyes

Hi everyone, Melissa here. I made this with the beautiful August Scraps of Elegance kit, Mallika's Whimsy. A friend of mine let me use a photo of her daughter.  

 I started this by putting on a thin layer of gesso with a credit card. I then put a paintbrush into gesso and flung it on the page, and repeated this several times.I like the the way the thin squiggly lines look. It did take awhile to dry, even with using a heat gun. I put on some texture paste, and then painted and flicked on colors.  I used some crackle accent, and topped it with purple chalk and distress ink. The painted sizzlit leaves and flowers are from older projects.

Thanks for looking!
