My Secret Story with Rhonda

Thursday greetings to you!  It's Rhonda here today with my very first post for UmWow Studio.

I was inspired by the Hexagon Background for my page. To begin, I coated it in clear gesso and then misted it with some Moon Shadow Mist, then sprinkled it randomly while wet with Pepper embossing Powder and applied heat to activate the embossing.

Once it dried completely, I flipped it over and used it as a mask to mist onto my background paper. I used TiffanyLou Blue and then set aside to dry.

I selected the Mini Polaroid with a heart relief and colored it with Whale Watch Blue. The heart was later colored in with a Blue Metallic artist pen. The Layered Clouds were misted with Splash Chalkboard mist and Whale Watch Blue. Once dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the layered cloud on the right.

Additional embellishments of enamel dots and sequins helped finish the page. The star theme of my "Life is Good" flair is one of my favorite elements on the page.
