First thing I did was used brown and white crayons and embossing folders. I laid the embossing folders behind the page and colored over it with crayon, adding the pattern to my page in crayon. I used about 4 different folders and just did this randomly. Once that was done, I used three different shades of distress stain and colored my entire page with those. Then I dried the whole page. The crayon just resists the stains so I didn't even wipe my page. Once that was all dry I used darker orange, white and brown acrylic paint and randomly painted my page with a roller tool. Then I added random stamps in various coordinating colors. I put some of the darker orange paint onto my craft sheet and used Tim's splatter stamp to randomly stamp onto the page with the paint and I really like how that turned out. I also did the same thing with purple and another one of Tim's border stamps. After the background was done I wasn't sure what I wanted on my page next so I walked away and left it lol.
When I came back this envelope that I had painted awhile back was just sitting there on another one of my tables and I figured it would look really cool in the middle of my page but it needed something so I stamped the kids onto it and then cut out the phrase with Tim's letters and added the white words as well. Last but not least I have this awesome skyline die cut and I used it to make a template and with distress ink in Walnut stain I made the skyline along the bottom of the page.
I just really love this page, I love the way it came out and I really like the colors.
I am entering this one in Unruly Paper Arts Challenge for this month. The theme is Fleur-De-Lis because I added some of them into my background, they are faint but they are there if you look closely. I really love the Fleur-De-Lis, it's such a beautiful symbol.
I hope you enjoyed this one, I'm sorry I didn't take photos of my project along the way but when your on a roll sometimes you just can't stop LOL.
