Hello everyone!
Today I'm hosting the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog!
 This month we have a super beautiful color pallet with several shades of purple with a little bit of coral, so I wanted to include all these pretty colors on my page.

Most of the times I like to use for my layouts photos I find on the internet and that's what I did this time. I love this photo with all these floating lanterns, it's so beautiful and much our color pallet, too!
In order to create the background I used the January 2015 Limited Edition Spray Set.
I covered some desired spots around the photo with gesso, then I used the purple sprays: I sprayed on a small clear plastic surface (you can find a lot of them in the packages of clear stamps, at least this is what I do) and then I 'stamped' it on the page, so as to create a water color effect.

I really like this effect! As I wanted to keep it simple, I only did some stamping here and there with a floral stamp and that's all for the background. Then I used the Sprays to color the flowers and also to make some splashes around the composition as a final touch.

Well, I can't wait to see your projects for the January Color Challenge!
Thank you for stopping by today, 
have a lovely day!
