Hello my fellow scrappers 
hope you are all well .
Today I'm sharing my interpretation of the 


I chose to use 3 colors from this board .
The lime green and the soft pink and lilac .
my BG is on white cardstock 

I covered my cardstock with a light coat of white gesso .
then proceeded to add the colors using a brayer .
it became very messy and some of the paper was so wet it began to peel !!
this added to the final textured look of the BG 
another fabulous new technique for me
I added some texture paste with a stencil and then 
applied more color .

I was inspired by the words relaxed, refresh and enjoy .

 Baden and I often have romantic weekends away 
we find the most beautiful B and B's .
I love this white on white look .
so restful and pure bliss, in my opinion .
