I was thinking about a layout today. I wanted to make my own background pattern and use some alphas that didn't have any vowels. I started with a piece of white cardstock. I glued the alphas all around in no particular order. I added gesso to tone down the colors. I know the camera doesn't pick it up but I sprayed with handmade gold simmer mist. Also I added slashes of Blackberry, Perfect Pearls Mandarin, and Perfect Pearls Forever Blue mists.
