Happy & Magical using Carta Bella Craft & Create by Kerryn Fry

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a page created with 
the collection Carta Bella Craft & Create.
Some fun photos from 2012 of Mr H
playing with his very cute, youngest cousin
during the January school holidays. 

The page began with a 12x12 piece of Bazzill Kraft Cardstock.
I've created the background effect in stages.
The first layer is three different Distress Oxide colours,
Using a blending tool and an older Vicki Boutin Stencil,
I have applied the Oxide inks randomly mixed
around the outside edge of the page.

The next layer is using Vicki Boutin Colour Study 
It has been applied with a sponge, over-lapping the Distress Oxides
in multiple spots on the cardstock.
I've then made watery mixtures of the gold ink 
and white gesso to create splashes on the page.

The final layer in the background 
is with a gold pen and I have outlined 
some of the hexagon shapes from the original stencil.

covered with the Tsukineko Ink.
I have finished the chipboard with a layer

The flowers on the page have been hand cut
from the paper Sew Lovely Floral.
I have raised each floral cluster with foam tape.

The 4 photos have been matted with
lifted with scrap cardboard to create dimension.

I've used black and white pens to outline
different layers of the patterned paper
with a fake stitch border.

The numbers and '&' are from a Thickers set.
They have been covered with the gold ink
and finished with Dimensional Magic.

The tag for journalling has been cut from
