Hello everybody! Sun is shining and I'm keeping busy with several scrapbooking projects. Here's one page created just for the blog! I also shot the steps while making the page.
The page is based on that photo of the family. I simply love it, for it's not a perfect portrait - 4-year-old is having a giggle attack and two-year-old is eating her fingers. I'm just kissing my daughter on the head and my husband is explaining something. Love the happy, real-life feel of the photo!

But let's go to the steps!
First I added some masking tape to the backgroung to create texture. Later on my plan changed completely and I think not a single piece is visible on the finished page. But hey, you'll need to see where the process takes you.
Then I diecut some border strips and attached them to the background with gesso.
Next step was to get messy with Tattered Angel's mists! I used several colors and created several layers of mists. I also kept some parts of the background unmisted, so that the gesso brings light to the page.
I drew a random circular shape to the background with a pencil. Then I added paperlayers, washitape and some stamping.
Title time! I used two different alphas for the title.
And finally added a few embellishments and some black splashes. I also wrote the journaling to the bottom left corner, under the title.
