This is for the My Scraps & More Got Talent 6/14 Challenge. You had to use busy background paper, your title had to be a sentence and you had to use at least three different types of alphas. Busy paper always scares me. But using a tip from Missy at My Scraps & More, I decided to give it a try. She suggested you paint your busy paper with gesso to soften it up. I only used the gesso around the photo area and I was surprised at how much it seemed to calm down all the busyness of the background paper. Then I used some blue and green gelatos to define the photo area a little. I really like how it turned out and will definitely be using this technique again.
