Betty gave us the challenge colors of: Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, neutrals of choice and stencils as dessert.
I thought of the neat brass stencil I had with bare tree images. I chose a dull orange paper that I thought approximated Dusty Durango and test sprayed some bleach on it. Bleach reacts differently on different papers. Serendipity!!...it bleached to a color that was similar to So Saffron..perhaps a shade lighter. I decided to go with it. My camera has really "bleached out" this yellow color. My "test spray" piece is the underneath panel...hate to waste paper! : ) Then I glimmered and blinged up the tree panel. The photo really doesn't show the shimmery effect as in real life.

How pretty is this?? I thought at first that it was an undiscovered Monet!! Seriously, this is gorgeous! Very impressionistic and dreamy looking!!! And isn't it fun to find something when you least expect it~ like when you spray bleach on paper and it turns into another color!! I love experiments when they turn out to be useful and fun!!
