Mexico Scrapbook Layout with Charlene Byrd

Hello bloggers!

Charlene here! Thank you for joining me today! My husband and I recently had a fantastic vacation in Mexico with our dear friends. While there we went on our first camel ride along the beach, what a cool experience!

To create the Mexico word I started playing with Prima ArtAlchemy Acrylic Paint Sparks. They are so easy to use. Simply brush it on and you have instant shimmer! I did the word Mexico with Magical Pond and the top of the palm trees with Fairy Wings. Then I added a bit of Walnut Distress ink on the top of it. I really like how it added some depth to the chipboard piece.

To create the Small Pansy Arrow Border and the Daisy Frame I started by painting the flower with white acrylic paint. You could also use Gesso.

Then I added Barn Door Distress Ink. I then added Magical Pond Sparks paint to the swirls.

Once it dried I found I didn't really like the colour of it so I then added some Distress Glitter with Glue n' Seal over the whole chipboard piece. I love how it changed the colours and added some shimmer.
