Do not resist!

The new line from Pink Paislee and the House of Three--Parisian Anthology!  It is positively gorgeous, but even better than that--it is fun!

Pink Paislee was one of the first booths we visited at the CHA Summer Show.  When we approached, we instantly saw this collection.

It formed the centerpiece of the booth and deserved it!  Although we loved (and ordered) a bunch of Pink Paislee (as always), the Parisian Anthology was especially yummy.  A closer look at the papers showed them as white with a bit of cream and silver accents.  My personal scrapping style almost always starts on a white or almost white base so I was already sold.

Then Therese took me for a walk to show me that there was more!  The papers have special glossy resist quality to them.  Intreguing, right?  But I am not the "artsy" type of scrapper.  I am more of a storyteller.  In the past, I have tried "messy" scrappy techniques, but they are hard for me.  Go ahead and call me a control freak--I can take it.  I am the only one of my friends that does not go gaga for mists.

I received a sample pack of the papers after placing my order.  Took them out today intending to scrap my usual way, it seemed wrong to not let the papers live up to their full potential.  *Word of warning, friends.*  Go ink shopping now.  You will want and need extra to play with these papers.

I started out with a copic marker.  Great resist!  But not enough ink for the whole sheet.  I will be ordering a refill for my Ice Ocean marker.  After that, I grabbed a cat eye ink pad.  And used the entire thing, too.  I will definitely be grabbing more!  In the end, I blended 1 copic with 2 shades of turquoise ink and some touches of a lime green ink to create the background.  I am so jazzed by it, that I might even try some paint next!

Look.  Papers: Pink Paislee, Diecuts, Brads, Letters: Pink Paislee, Rub Ons: Maya Road, Markers: Copic, Ink: Colorbox, Font: Teen, Other: Machine, Thread.

Journaling: What are you peeking at out of the corner of your eye, Sidney?  Is someone coming?  Is something going to happen? I guess I will never know.

I cannot wait for my big box of goodies from Pink Paislee to arrive!  I need more!
