A Note from Stephanie
Of course I just had to pick pink in my color palette for this month's gallery. I love this beautiful "misted pink" paper from the new Dear Lizzy Polka Dot collection and knew I wanted to use it as my main color. I used a mask and some gesso on my background, as well as some gesso covered tissue paper to add a little texture and dimension. My other colors are more subtle as I wanted the pink to really be the main focus.

September Fun Fact
Preschool starts back for us this September and both of my two kids will be in the same school. My daughter will be in the four year old program and my son will start his very first year of preschool in the two year old program. Boy am I looking forward to a schedule and routine again!!
