Fun painting, misting and glamming up

Seriously, aren't these colors gorgeous? I just love this photo! When I first saw it, I couldn't take my eyes off of it... then after I managed to pull my eyes away from the photo, I got to thinking, "what on earth am I going to scrap using these colors?" and then I realized that I have a great fall photo of me that I love...

I bet you've probably wondered how to use these plain papers by Donna? I know because when I first came across them, I thought to myself, "there's no way I can use these papers... they are just too plain... they need color!" But no one said you couldn't mess these papers up! I had so much fun painting, misting and glamming up these papers to make them work for me!

Here's my inspiration to help me select the colors for my layout.
I coated the papers with mists and chalkboard mist and then created little buds with orange glimmer glaze. I also painted my tags orange and cut them in half for a fun border.


Hope you've enjoyed your stay. Please come back to visit!
