Websters Pages 'Palm Beach' & Scrapbook Adhesives Swap!

So I had a little fun working with the newest Palm Beach collection from Websters Pages this past weekend!  I wanted to do a more 'mixed media' style page and try out some fun ideas!  For my page above, I used WP Palm Beach Patterned papers.  I used a simple background paper from the collection and did a little watered down painting with some green and pink acrylic paint as a base.  I then cut out some petal designs from another of the Palm beach patterned papers and glued them to the page using this cool adhesive sheet I got from Scrapbook Adhesives.  I needed my petals to stick down right to the edges because I was planning on painting over the edges with some Gesso.  Here is a quick little step by step on how to use this adhesive.... 
You just peel back one side of the adhesive sheet and stick it to the back of the patterned paper you are using.  I drew out the design I needed for my page (petal), and then cut it out. 
Then I just peeled back the other protective sheet to reveal the adhesive underneath.  I stuck it to my project and continued with the painting, doodling and stitching. (see close-up of finished design in the photo below... 
Okay, I'm going to share with you a fun little thing I've recently found to play with on my scrap pages!  A white out pen!!  It works great as something to doodle with on a mixed media style page!  For my flower pattern I glued down the petals, used my finger to add some swipes of Gesso on the edges of the petals, added a couple of quick strokes of green paint for stems and then just used a black gel pen to add doodles to define the design more (just basically do a little scribbling! No need to be an artist, the messier the better, I even doodled little words in my scribbles!) I then used the white-out pen (this is literally a correction fluid meant for office use, made by Bic) to add extra doodles and to add my little quote/phrase (I found this quote on Pinterest....love that site!).  Here is a pic of the white out Pen I used...
 
I also used the newest cameo's from the Palm Beach collection called Perfect Accents on this page....aren't they cute??  I love this one! I mounted it on one of Dusty Attic's Cameo Sliders laser cut chipboard pieces....they are the perfect size for WP's cameo's!  I just added a little gold 3D paint to the cameo slider to give it some shimmer.
