moment.

Today I would like to share with you an experiment.  This particular layout is featured on the Scrapbook Circle blog today, my challenge was to use the Heidi Swapp letters included in the new Happy Place kit.  I wanted the gold on the back ground and in the layout to pop so I decided to paint my letters with gesso, then mist them with some gold Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  After they were dry I added some pop dots to the back of the title.
 you can see a closeup of the title:

 this was a fun layout!  I got to try a few techniques that I have been wanted to play around with and I really like how everything came together.  Thanks SO much for the visit today!
