I had fun addings lots of layers and media to this page. I started out with the text paper from my October Cocoa Daisy kit, and washed it with gesso. Then I brushed and pooled on some creamsicle watercolour, and let it dry. Then I painted on some little pink Vs, stamped flowers around, and then some polka dots that I heat embossed with gold ZING embossing powder.
There were lots of pretty little bits in the October Cocoa Daisy kits, as usual. I loved these little flag banner pieces and gold vellum piece, and the gold twine. I painted some leaves I cut using the exclusive subscriber cut files for October.
Dribbles of paint are lovely. I like the way the drips that are part of the patterned paper work so well with my real paint drips.
I always keep the cut off strips -- especially Crate Paper ones! I love that pretty scalloped edge. Here I tore them in half, layered them where I wanted my photo to go, and then stitched them down.
I added a little paint to the edge of the layout, too, just for some fun and interest. That pretty photo corner was a vellum faux ephemera piece included in the kits this month... it had gold foil printing on it. I used my photo corner punch. AND I had enough of the ephemera piece left over to layer on another project!!
By the way, did you know the Cocoa Daisy daily planner is now available by subscription?
