Another month another Challenge. I am enjoying the More Than Words Challenges. This months challenge was to use “Bliss” and gesso.


I am in Bliss when I am at home with my kids and my gardens. This picture is one of my favorites of the kids playing in our pond with the fish.


This layout is fun.


I started out decoupaging the page with some tissue paper, and added some spray and more stencil. I actually used 13 @rts Gesso for this stencil. It’s one of my favorite stencils.


I mixed some mica powder with some water and used to make some splatters.


I also used the mixture to paint on the chipboard.


I softened the flowers with some gesso.


I also added some gesso to the chippie.


My “Bliss” is my home, if I didn’t have to work I would be content being at home, playing in my gardens with my family.
