Sunshine Bliss

One of the design elements I consider when I put together a page is color.  I often pick colors from my photograph for my paper layers.  With this photo, I especially wanted to pickup the beautiful colors of the Florida tropical waters and the sandy beach.  The striped pp from MME was the perfect paper as it had all the colors I wanted.  I painted the Dusty Attic frame with green smooch and turquoise liquid pearls which works great as a paint if you water it down just a tad.  I usually put a few drops of liquid pearls on my craft sheet, dip my brush first in water and then in the liquid pearls and paint away, works great.  I like the shimmery effect of the two together. 

The papers are a combination of My Mind's Eye Stella and Dora and K & Co Ancestry and hiding underneath the wild flower punched page is Glitz Laced with Grace Butterflies.  All of the papers are from the May Swirlydoos kit except for the MME papers.
