A Layout for Donna Salazar Designs

Hey everyone. 

Here today to share with you my second project for Donna Salazar Designs for September. This is a layout I created using the Family Jeans collection!

"I love you" by Nadia Cannizzo

 I LOVED the Houndstooth paper from the Family Jeans collection as my background and I really wanted to go for a grungy look. I think the Want2Scrap Corrugated cardboard really goes well together with the background but I decided to create a contrast by painting it white in some areas. 

 I totally ADORE the Clearsnap Smooch Spritz in Mixed Berries , which is the purple mist you can see and I added some more colour by using some purple flowers from my stash

And here is a close up of Donna's 8x8 Corrugated Cardboard for Want2Scrap which takes Gesso and any other mixed media mediums BEAUTIFULLY! 

Peeking through is the Family Eyelet sheet. I tore open some areas of the Houndstooth paper to reveal just a peek of it. 

Just behind the picture, I have used torn up pieces of Mixed Media Stax 2 papers, which I applied with Gel Medium and Gesso.
