Love the Color Room Palette 13

The first time I saw this week's inspiration photo and palette, I thought, "oh this is going to be a cake walk!"  Heck, there are cakes in the photo after all!  Three weeks... it took me three long weeks to finally conquer this one.  So much for cake walking or cake eating!  Ultimately, I was so inspired by the amazing creations by the Color Room members using Lydell's sketches!  I had to give it a try and not be deterred by the flowers!  I do so much love the result!

By the time I did this layout, I have received my big shipment of Shimmerz products, so I really went to town on this one.  The pink chipboard bracket was brown.  I painted it with pink acrylic paint, a few coats.  Then I topped it off with two coats of Teresa Collins Ballet Slipper Pearlz. The end result looked fantastic!  It's pearlescent, smooth with a gorgeous sheen! 



I painted the chipboard "love" at the bottom with Blingz "flashee fushia" and spritzed the paper and the other "love" chipboard with "Licorice."  At the end of of this palette, I really love this layout and had great fun trying out my new Shimmerz products.
