You Are My Favorite

My personality is kind of funny.  Some days I crave order and white and cleanliness, and some days I really want to get messy.  This layout came after I created this page for Wilna's blog (which she shared yesterday).  Once I got started with my paints and gelatos, I just couldn't stop.  Like...I couldn't go to sleep because I had some many ideas in my head....  So I got up and made this page and the process was so freeing!  

Using paint and gelatos, or any art media really, opens up my creative inner self I think.  I get a little "rush" of excitement and find the ideas come easier.

For this page, I started by coloring gelatos down one side of my page to create a vertical band.  I then used some water to blend the colors and tone them down a little.  Finishing the page was so easy.  Wilna's cut files and a few cut files from Studio Calico kept my page bright and white, but added in some movement and texture.

The transparency diamonds from the Penny Arcade kit at Studio Calico were just made for layering over paints and gelatos!  I love how they look against the colors and paired with the cut files.

A little pop of gold and a sprinkle of embellishments finished off the page!!
