Hello everyone – Christy Riopel here!

I love Core’dinations ColorCore pre-embossed cardstock. It makes a great base for a mixed media technique page.

I started by dry brushing gesso over the entire surface of the teal paper. Don’t add water as that may lessen the embossing a bit. I then added Clearsnap ColorBox dye ink to the raised surfaces by directly rubbing the ink pad on them.

I love the how antique the finished look is.

I used Core’dinations ColorCore die cuts on the page as some of the many layers I have under my photo.

    Christy, just love the color combinations you used. I haven’t tried gesso but this sure makes me want to. Your total layout is adorable. I love how you encorporated it with the embossing, and I love embossing. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Crub the outsole and the un-nylon material part with collar-cleaning.
    There is an further plastic insert help for the instep as perfectly.
    On Sunday, I went for a quiet walk with my family at the
    seaside town of Felixstowe.

    For this reason, people trust the name of Nikon for their camera
    shooting needs and use these lenses for the zoom. Speaking of dimensions, incredibly comparable,
    but on physique excess fat the Canon is about 130g heavier.
    Anything surplus to requirements has been thrown out.

    Both are coming off their best seasons in the NBA and should be happy about moving to teams with playoff aspirations.
    Denver has the capability to push the ball and even limit Kobe Bryant to 17.
    In that respect, they were a lot like the NBA All-Star Game itself.
