Live wild & free using Simple Stories Birthday Blast by Kerryn Fry

Hello everyone!
Today's page has been created with 
the gorgeous and colourful collection,
Simple Stories Birthday Blast.
The colours are the stand out in this range
and I have used some photos of Mr H from 2006 to match.
He was always a very busy boy when playing outside,
kept himself amused for ages.
The page started with a plain piece of Bazzill Kraft Cardstock,
which worked really well with the rainbow of colours.
I've then cut horizontal strips of patterned paper with different widths
and stuck them down on the page.
I've left a peek of kraft between each strip.
The photos have been backed with 3 different layers
of paper to define them on the page.
The Journal Bits Pack has provided the tabs
and journal spots on the page.
I've used foam tape to lift each of those elements
to help create layers across the page. 
I love the touches of silver on some of the embellishment pieces.

The Bits & Pieces Pack had all of the cool pieces,
the robot, cogs and stars.
Each of the pieces have been added to the page with foam tape.

I have hand-punched some chevrons from Raven cardstock
and added them to the page with foam tape.
The pop of black ties in with the title 
and works well with the bright colours. 

I have hand-cut some planets and rocket ships from Have a Blast.
Each piece has been added with foam tape.
Then using a black gel pen, I've added a fake stitched
border to some of the papers strips.

has been given a base coat of white gesso.
Once dry, I have added layers of Mustard Seed Distress Oxide.
I love how the gesso has sat in the engraved words
and helps to highlight each letter.

The 2 Crafty title Live wild & free has been covered with black ink
and describes Mr H perfectly.
