Cousins using Simple Stories Cruisin' by Kerryn Fry

Hi there everyone!
Today I am sharing my first page created 
with the collection, Simple Stories Cruisin.
Not a ship in sight, but loved the primary colours in this range.
It's a very recent photo of Mr 15 and his cousins after playing croquet,
I can't believe how he towers over them now.

I've started with Raven cardstock this week,
the black background really pops the red, blue and yellow.
I've used the non-themed patterned papers from the collection
and left a small gap between the first layer of papers for the black to show through.   

The embellishments are from the Bits & Pieces Ephemera pack.
The flags at the top of the page 
have been lifted with foam tape to give them dimension.
I've used a white gel pen to add a border to the patterned papers

The larger stars are from the Ephemera pack,
the smaller stars have been hand-cut from the paper Seas the Day.
All of the stars have been lifted with foam tape.
I've added another border with a black gel pen. 

The 2 Crafty title Cousins has been gessoed first
and then covered with Mustard Seed Distress Paint.
I have added a border around the title with a white gel pen
and then finished the title with Dimensional Magic.
The heart is from the Ephemera Pack 

A simple and clean page to finish of the week.
Thank you for visiting the blog,
have a fabulous weekend
and please join us again on Monday.
