Beloved - July Hip Kit

Hi there.  Me again with another page.  I really adore this patterned paper that I used for my background and wanted to showcase it again by just using a Just Nick cut file so that the beautiful ombre colours peek through.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Hip Kit Exclusives July; Cardstock: American Craft; Chipboard title: Celebr8; Cipboard Frame: Blue Fern studios (Floral Medley Frame);  Tag: Crate Paper; Flowers: Prima; Brads: My Minds Eye; Buttons: Crate Paper; Enamel hearts: Doodlebug, Illustrated Faith; Die cuts: Hip Kit Exclusives; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink: Dew Drop Graphite Black; Stickels: Black Diamond; Silhouette Cut File: Just Nick; Embossing Powder: Tsukineko Gold.

Some close ups:
 I made the little cluster at the top right to balance the layout.  I first had the title below the photo stack but moved it to the top.  The title chipboard was inked in black and that covered with stickles.

I love the way the frame peeks out behind the photo stack and I used quite a lot of different patterned papers to create the photo stack.

 ...and of course some stitching.  This photo of Kobus and I were taken at our Eerste River Scrapbook Retreat in February this year.

 I coloured some Prima flowers with Color Bloom mist to match the papers and then toned it down with some gesso.

A few buttons, enamel hearts and rubber charms and there we go.
