This is a layout I created for The Color Room Challenge site when Imaginarium Designs were sponosring the challenges in May :) :) :)
Background and chipboard element paint technique

I first glued the chipboard hessian square to the background using a glue stick.
I then mixed some cream paint in with the gesso before applying it to background
Using a coarse foam roller, roll out and cover the layout background and chipboard with the paint/gesso mix.
Don’t over roll the paint/gesso mix otherwise you will loose the lovely coarse bubble effect of the paint and gesso.
I usually use mists, but for this particular colour combination I needed to mix some pink paint with water and put it into a spray bottle to get a colour match.
This was then sprayed liberally over the chipboard embellishment.
I then dried the pink spray paint with a heat gun, after tipping it from side to side, to get it to run and drip across the background board
Cheers and Happy Scrapping :) xxx
