KaiserCraft (Misty Mountains) Choose Happiness Layout ~ FotoBella DT

     Do you have a happy place, where all of your worries and fears seem to disappear? Mine has always been the beach. So I found this old photo, and slightly altered the colors in Photoshop, to go with the beautiful new KaiserCraft Misty Mountains Scrapbooking Bundle from

     Being an Aquarius, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous, amethyst, "Agate" paper! So I tore some of the edges, and covered them with Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste (Brass). Then, to really enhance my birthstone, I made it sparkle with Prima Marketing Glass Glitter (Pearl), adhered with Prima Marketing Clear Gesso, applied with one of my Bo Bunny Palette Knives

     I also used Clear Gesso as the first step in my stencil work, which matches the design on the background paper. After it dried, I went over it with Distress Crayons, (Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves), and blended the colors with my fingers. Then I used the stencil again, to lightly apply Patina Effect Paste (Brass). The straight edges were colored with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and finished with hand-stitching done in three colors. 

     The same exact steps that I did with the stencil work, was also done to the wooden title.

     Finally, I placed the circles of bling, one by one, with FotoBella Clear Rhinestones & Half Pearls, dyed with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks (Wild Plum and Stream). By mixing both, I got blue and purple, and applied them with a Q-Tip.

     The colors and rhinestone design, were inspired by the gorgeous May moodboard and sketch, at Mixed Media & Art.
