New DT member at Funkie Junkie and first Challenge!

 Good morning!

Hi everyone!  I am excited to share that I am the newest member of the Funkie Junkie Boutique Design Team!
This is the first challenge I am participating in for the Funkie Junkie and this challenge we are going with an 'Anything Goes' theme for this challenge and are looking forward to seeing your vintage/shabby chic projects so make sure you check out the blog for all the rules and to upload your project!

So for my layout I created this:

I used the awesome papers from 49 & market that I covered with clear gesso


 I used a stencil from my stash and some texture paste then dabbed broken china ink pad on a glass mat, sprayed with water then used a paint brush and more water to create a water color look


 I used the ink pad also on the chipboard pieces and on the flowers


 I added some cheesecloth, flowers, seed beads and art stones to finish off the layout

Welcome to the team Laura! It's so great to have you joining us. I love this layout - you've balanced the design so well and all the trims and layers really help to enhance that photo of the beach walk x

Very pretty! I love how you were able to pull the colors out of the photo for your design. Love the texture of the stencil work with the wash of color for the background. Congratulations on being the newest member of The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge DT! Looking forward to seeing each of your contributions!
