I decided to make a scrapbook layout this month. Its been a  while since I made one so was really excited to make one.

To begin with, I took out my foam alpha stickers and stuck them on to my embossed polka dotted green cardstock.

I slathered two layers of gesso on top of the alphas to make sure the green color does not peep through

I dry brushed some light blue matte acrylic paint on top to give it a rustic look.

Here is a closer look. You can also see the embossed polka dot peeking through the blue color.
