This is the Good Life using Kaisercraft Memory Lane by Kerryn Fry

Good morning everyone and hello winter!.
The first Friday of a new month and I'm still wondering where May went?
This week I am still playing with the Kaisercraft collection Memory Lane.
I love this gorgeous colour combination, so soft and simple.
The photo is of a much smaller Mr now 14, at a rare moment of rest.
Way too cute not to capture.

Base cardstock is the usual Bazzill Kraft.
Then using a star stencil, I have randomly applied 
Once the ink was dry, I have stuck down the first paper layer,
I have used the same stencil for a layer of gold paint,
applying it both to the cardstock and paper.

The next stage was building the paper layers.
All the edges of patterned paper have been ink with charcoal ink.
Then I've pulled out a few dies and got busy creating a story.
I figured with Mr 14 being fast asleep,
I would build more layers with stars,clouds and a 'Moon'

Loads of foam tape used on the embellishments to create depth on the page.
The photo has been matted with Black Bazzill Cardstock
and then mounted on some scrap cardboard.
I've included a layer of pattern acetate for an extra shine.
The Kaisercraft Memory Lane Collectables added those perfect finishing touches.

I used the 2 Crafty Polaroid Frame to draw the eyes to my sleeping prince, 
the frame has been covered with patterned paper Kaisercraft Memory Lane Jade Jewel.
The 2 Crafty title This is the Good Life was given a base coat of heavy gesso.
It is a rough coat, giving the chipboard a rough texture.
Once the gesso had dried, I've randomly swiped the title with charcoal ink

The final layer on the title is some stamping using gold ink 
and a background stamp.

Thank you for visiting us today.
I hope you have been inspired by my creation.
Have a fabulous weekend and happy crafting.
Please check back on Monday for Fiona's next project.
