Follow Your Bliss
(More Than Words March DT Reveal)

Another month, another exciting new challenge at More Than Words
so another new project inspired by the best challenge blog in town!!

Here is the More Than Words March Main Challenge!

Word Inspiration - BLISS
Creative Challenge - GESSO

As you know by now, the concept of the challenge is to be inspired by the word
(either add it on your project or be inspired by it) and incorporate the creative challenge.

Click HERE for all the details on the March challenge
and to see the wonderful creations of my all my fellow DT!

The word BLISS immediately made me think of these pictures of my 2 nieces who had the time of their lives at Walt Disney World a few years back.  I used this very fitting chipboard title from Blue Fern Studios.  I used GESSO with a stencil to create some swirly textures on my background paper also from Blue Fern Studios, the Ombre Dreams collection.

I also covered the BFS chipboard carousel horse with a thick coat of gesso, used my heatgun to make it bubble and crackle before covering it with gold paint and gold Imagine Ink glitter.

Gesso was also dabbed on all embellishments and the outer edges of the paper to give the layout my usual whitewash finishing touch.

I adore these shots of Daphne and Ella riding the Magical Kingdom carousel.

I can't wait to see how you are inspired by BLISS
 and how you will incorporate GESSO on your project!  
Deadline to link up is March 31st!
