Dance - Imaginarium Designs & Scraps of Darkness

Today, I'm sharing a bright and colourful layout using the Scraps of Darkness July Kit Gypsy Summer and some gorgeous Imaginarium Designs Chipboard!  The design of this layout was inspired by the August Sketch challenge on Graphic 45's Facebook page.The picture, which I took while on my honeymoon, is just ideal for the Graphic 45 "Bohemian Bazaar" collection papers.
There are lots and lots of layers on this layout incorporating the Graphic 45 papers, postcard cutouts, tags & pockets and stickers. I also added lots of bling around the page to embellish the flower and flourish designs in the papers.
I needed a way to make the photo really stand out on these bright/busy papers - so the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard frame was a perfect embellishment to enhance the photo! 
I also used an Imaginarium Designs border to anchor the bottom of the layout and balance all the heavy layering at the top. I just love the coordinated border and frame together!
The chipboard elements were first painted with gesso to get a smooth, white base. I then used Faber-Castell Gelatos in Margarita Mix and Gold and rubbed them onto the chipboards with my fingers. Finally, to lighten the effect and reveal some of the white base, I rubbed a finger moistened with water over the chipboards.
