A touch of paradise

Another one for the Cairns chapter of my 2015 album...  I was inspired by the beautiful September colour challenge at White with 1:

and also the September sketch at Blue Fern Studios, to create this layout:

I used a chipboard from the BFS Seaside Seashells set.  I primed it with gesso, painted with Twinkling H2Os, added some microbeads, and then topped it all with Dimensional Magic:

Other materials:
Lilybee Designs Picket Fence - Cottage Garden patterned paper
Lilybee Designs Picket Fence alphabet stickers
Echo Park For the Record - Fancy Floral patterned paper
My Memories butterfly punch
LuminArte Twinkling H2Os - Lemongrass watercolour
Stencil Girl Rembrandt's Words 6x6 stencil
Sea shells
