'Perfection' Scrapbook Layout
By Kripa Koushik

Hello friends,

Its starting to look & feel like autumn here, yet I'm unable to move away from lush green
 & pretty pink flowers. So, my project today is a layout that looks a lot like spring.


As the background was dark and provided enough contrast, I decided to paint the chipboard
 pieces to blend in with the colours on the pattern paper. Layers of pattern paper & chipboard
 have been built on top of a piece from the Cog Nested Frame. A smaller piece from the
same set has been used in the top right cluster. Tucked in between layers of pattern paper
and lace are pieces from...
 Leafy Shrub Set 1, Mini flourish bits, Gigi's flowers & groovy flowers.

All the chipboard pieces were coated with two layers of heavy gesso. Dab the gesso using
a make up sponge to get a rough application. Once completely dry, paint the  
Cog Nested Frame, Leafy Shrub Set 1, Mini Flourish Bits with shades of pink &
 green Twinkling H2Os.  
Gigi's flower got a coat of dark burgundy acrylic paint and Groovy flowers peach acrylic paint.

 Finally, the title piece - Perfection.I didn't add any colour to the title piece, its just
coated with several coats of white gesso.
