The photo is from a dance show my girls took part in some years ago.
I started by gutting the sheet of Yukon Gold Bazzill Cardstock to leave a frame of 2.5cm. I had some A3 Yupo paper, and I cut this down to 29.5 x 29.5cm. Before mounting the Yupo over the Bazzill, I worked on it with the Alcohol Inks.
I selected Orange Sunset and Honeycomb Alcohol Inks, and Enchanted Pearl Alcohol and dripped these over the page, I allowed them to run into one another and then added some Alcohol Blending Solution to lighten and blend the colours. Then I added a few drops of Gold Alcohol Mixative creating polished golden highlights to the mix.
Once throughly dry I added this to the Bazzill frame created earlier.
My photo was mounted onto some Black Bazzill, and arranged to the centre of the page. With Tim Holtz - Stacked Labels - Sizzix Thinlits dies, I cut a journalling plate and frame using the Yukon Gold and Black Bazzill. I scribbled my journalling onto the card and mounted it onto the page with some black organza ribbon.
I found some felt alphabet stickers in my stash and used them to create the title. Then with some smaller, old black alpha stickers, I scattered random numbers over the page.
Finally I trimmed some phrases from the Jen Hadfield - Reaching Out collection - Stick Together paper, and added them to the sides of the photo.
Thanks for looking. Busy working on the June kit now and will be sharing the layouts next week.
