I created the above paper layout by following the steps from Wilna Furstenberg at Studiocalico.com.  She used gel paint in her tutorial but I don’t have gel paint so I used what was available to me, which was, gel matte medium, and acrylic paints.  The intricate die cut was created by Wilna as a freebie.  I used the Silhouette Portrait to cut it out and then gently removed it from the mat with an exacto knife and a plastic scraper.  It’s a little time consuming but it’s one gorgeous piece of die cut.

This layout was so much fun to make.  I’ve never used paint on a scrapbook page like this so it was a really great learning experience.
