To achieve this look, I brushed some gesso and splattered with my Glimmer Mist applicator. I also dipped a plastic cup on some paint and used it as a stamp for those orange circles.


The base for this layout is the beautiful die cut paper found in the LE kit. I loved using it on my layout and to highlight it, I applied liquid dots using my Viva Pearl Pen in the color salmon.

Lovely, soft and so pleasant to view. You did an awesome job. I use these pearl drops, too.
