You make me Happy with Carta Bella Welcome Home by Kerryn Fry

Morning All!
November brings two new collection for me to feature this month.
Today's project has been done using the gorgeous Carta Bella collection Welcome Home.
I need to say straight out that I LOVE Carta Bella papers!!!
The thickness, texture and smell always excites me 
and yes I did say smell LOL.
This collection is filled with good wholesome colours, rich and inviting.
The boys in my life are the stars once again.

This week I've gone back to my favourite background effect, 
starting with a Kraft cardstock base.
I picked three matching Distress Ink colours from the papers and 
three different Tim Holtz Layering Stencils.
The stencils and inks have been randomly applied around the main focus.

The 2 Crafty title 'You make me Happy' has been covered with Distress Paint Fired Brick.
Once the paint was dry, I have used a metallic gold ink and a stamp to add a pattern to the words.
Then I've given part of the title, the word 'Happy', a coat of Glossy Accents.
Love how the Glossy highlights the sparkle of the ink. 

I have used a combination of the Ephemera Die Cuts and Sticker Sheet to build the clusters on the page.
Each piece has been matted with black cardstock to give them clear definition.
Foam tape helps to give the elements a lift around the photo, creating dimension.

I love the pop of red throughout the page, I have used the Sticker Sheet to balance
it with the photo and papers.
I have finished the page off with some doodling with a black pen and 
twine to decorate the basket and banner.

Thank you for visiting the blog today.
I hope you have enjoy my project.
Hope to see you back here on Monday for Fiona's next project.
