Today's challenge is to try something new or different.
I've had my PearlEX forever and never use them. I bought Gum Arabic to use with them and never tried it, so today was the day.
This is a sneak peek of a set to be released next week by Mark's Finest Papers, aHC, during the blog hop. It is called Lily of the Valley. I colored my image with Copics and then mixed the gum arabic and PearlEx together and painted it on and then smeared it to add color to the sentiment panel.

I know Perfect Pearls are fun to use, I'm glad I don't have to add the extra step of using gum arabic. I can bet this looks lovely and shimmery in real life - and I love that Lily of the Valley image. They always remind me of my mother.

That's a new one to me! I have Pearl Ex still in my stash from years ago too, but I've never used gum arabic. I'm sure it is even prettier IRL-love the lilies, I had some in my last yard and I miss them.
