Bohemian Blue

Well not long now until 2018 starts for myself and my family it will be a big year for us
it will also be a year of turning 50 for my husband and brother and many friends 
my page is a photo of my own 50th which actually was the inspiration be hind the Bohemian Bouquet Collection as my party was a themed party so now my birthday album has Bohemian featured through out 
which leads me too this perfect mood board and challenge from Kraft plus.
It has been a very long time since I entered a challenge but the inspiration of a mood board was what I was looking for so here goes

I took a few step by step photos as well this time something I struggle to do but am trying to get into the habit of 
The first photo I painted and sprayed the card stock, once dry I then stamped on it with white pigment ink, chalk ink and dye ink, like my previous posts I am favoring this little stamp from Bohemian Bouquet stamps 

Getting the bits together I trimmed around the A4 die cuts so I had more craft showing through the image and to all of the layers for the dimension

This is my very own chipboard designed and cut by me.
 I have sponged Gesso onto it with blue paint very thickly, once dry I added some texture paste for more dimension

And now to assemble my layout

The blue of the table in the mood board picture was my first focal point of inspiration then was the circles the colours of reds and pinks also was something that I wanted to bring into the layout, and finally I chose my photo because of the table inspiration 
So one of many New Year plans for 2018 is to be challenged and join in the fun of such inspirations.

Wishing all a Happy and Safe New Year

I got the camera out to take some photos and realized I had not shared these ones yet 
so before I share a couple of Christmas cards just recently made I now will share my page and a Acetate card that was made well over a month ago 
how time fly's when creating
I have used my own chipboard combined with lots of Bohemian Bouquet die cuts and the damask stencil combined with the papers from the collection 

With this acetate card I have used a stencil, embossing folder and stamps from the Bohemian Bouquet Collection

this a card I only had one photo of mainly I have used layers the die cuts for this simple but efective card
