March Guest Designer
Jan Rankine

Hi everyone - Jan here again - thank you for dropping by.
 This month I have featured the beautiful Nella's Frame.
I applied Gesso very heavily, applied heat, then painted it white
to get this lovely textured effect.

I love  Summer Leaf Stemsthey can be used on
so many different sorts of pages. I have inked these with 
Distress Ink then again applied Crackle Accents to
give a natural look.


 Gesso applied heavily and heated with a heat gun creates 
this beautiful textured effect.

 I separated a couple of the Summer Leaf Stems, and tucked them
 into my flourish.

I painted this word, then applied a very thin coat of Gesso
to tone down the colour and create a little interesting paint

The flowers and ribbons I have used on this page are from
