"If you put in the effort you will see change".   One of the many motivational posters I have pinned lately on Pinterest.  I've been putting in the effort, and finally am seeing some change!!  So time to celebrate with a Layout!

And what better way than to celebrate with some of my very favourite papers... Antiquities by Donna Salazar for GCD.  Still loving the soft girly grunge of these!

 All my favourite things as well... ZVA Bling, Dodgy Flowers, Green Tara Roses and Sprays, Crochet Lace Trim and as always, Dusty Attic Chipboard!

Techniques:  The chipboard was painted in warm white acrylic paint, then dabbed with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Stain and blended with a nappy wipe.  Next it was dunked into LSG Cotton Candy Pink Color Shot, dried off and dabbed with LSG Cajun Carnelian Red.  White still wet it was spritzed with a shimmer spritz and dried.   The spritz over the top activates all the colours and they blend and pool together, love this look!
