Totally Smitten using Echo Park Paper Co Welcome Baby Boy by Kerryn Fry

Hello again!
Today I am sharing the first page that I've created 
using the very cute collection 
Echo Park Paper Co Welcome Baby Boy.
Another collection I have been drawn to for the colour palette
instead of the theme of the papers.
The photo was taken in 2011,
Mr H with one of his cousin.

The base cardstock is Bazzill Kraft, no surprise!
The background effect is a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil
and Cracking Campfire Distress Oxide Ink.
I've added ink on the outer aspects of the cardstock
and then highlighted the edges with a blending tool. 

The 2 Crafty Rainbow was given a base coat of white gesso,
then I've hand-painted the rainbow with Distress Paint.
The clouds were given a few layers of white paint
and then finished with a swipe of White Brilliance Ink.
I have used a white gel pen to add the fake stitch lines
and add stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet with foam tape.

I've used multiple stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet
at the top of the page and lifted them with foam tape for dimension.
I cut out two of the tags from Boy Tags
and added them to the top of the photo.
The photo has two layers as a mat,

I've used more of the Raven cardstock with a border bunch
to creat a strip across the page under the photo.
The 2 Crafty Chevron Bits have been covered with
Black Ink and backed with Little One Leaves.

The 'You & Me' square was hand cut from Milestone Journaling Cards,
I've outlined the square with a black gel pen
and then outlined the heart with a white pen.
The square has been added to the page with foam tape.
The 2 Crafty Foliage was painted with 
Rustic Wilderness Distress Paint
and outlined with white gel pen.

was covered with Hickory Smoke Distress Paint.
Once dry, I've outlined the letters using a white pen
to create a fake stitch line.
The title and foliage have been lifted with foam tape.
I've decorated around the title with more stickers

I love how this page turned out.
The stitched lines on the reverse side of Milestone Journaling cards
was a perfect accent to carry across the page.
Thank you for visiting the blog today.
I hope you have enjoyed the steps.
Have a happy, crafty weekend
and please join us again on Monday
for Fiona's next page.
