Together using Carta Bella Sunflower Market by Kerryn Fry

Hi everyone!
Today I'm sharing another page that 
was created with the gorgeous collection
Carta Bella Sunflower Market. 
The photos still just make me smile!
The original photo was taken in 1974
with Mum and my siblings.
We decided to do a re-creation 
last year, 48 years later, 
while we were altogether for a birthday.
Seriously good fun.

The page started with the fabulous, amazingly sturdy
I cannot recommend this paper enough
for wet mixed media background effects.

I planned the layout of the page first,
cut the patterned papers to fit and then put them aside.
Using plastic packaging, water and Distress Oxide Inks
Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough.
the background came together.

Using the darker Pine Needles closer to the papers
and then Evergreen Bough to soften the edges.

The background was thoroughly dried using a heat gun,
and a sponge to apply the ink to the background.

At the top of the page I have used a
3x4 Journaling Card, a few strips of patterned papers,
The frame of a 6x4 journal card used for the title,
some hand-cut flowers from Sunny 
and a Tag for the Frames & Tags pack.

To the right of the photos,
 I have added the larger 'Welcome Home' tag, 
but covered the words with the 'Gather' tag
that I have hand-cut to the shape of the word.

There are some bees hand-cut from Busy Buzzing paper
and more flowers from the Sunny paper.

Under the tag and flower cluster,
I have added the remaining piece of the 
floral frame from the layout last week.

The journal spot was created from a 
6x4 Journal card and add under the photo.
I've used layers of foam tape to lift most elements.

Then using a black pen I have added borders
to some elements and paper pieces.

The small flower bunches were cut
from the 6x4 Journal Card that I've used for the title.
I've used foam tape to lift the flowers 
to create more dimension on the page.

Above the photos, I have created a small cluster
and built a sub-title for the page.
More bees cut from the Busy Buzzing paper
and the words were cut from a 
6x4 Journal Card and 3x4 Journal Card.
All raised with foam tape.

The main title of the page has been
cut from a 6x4 Journal Card.
It has been lifted with foam tape and is sitting on
a 2 Crafty Floral Banner covered with Gold Ink.

To finish the page, I've watered down
some Tsukineko All Purpose Ink Vegas Gold
and flicked some splashes across the page.

Once the page was completed,
I did lightly spray the back of the Foundations Paper
and 'flattened' it with some heavy weights
It worked beautifully!

Thank you for visiting the blog today.
I hope the page has inspired you and given you a giggle.
Enjoy your weekend, make some time for yourself
and join us again on Monday.
