You are my Happy Place - CSI 303 - Mixed Media

Hello my friends.  Today is reveal day for Case File no 303 over on  Color Story Inspiration.   I was inspired by the colours of this case file and used it in the traditional way.   I am really enjoying the mixed media process and this page was also inspired by a page by Victor Henriques,  he really makes mixed media backgrounds look so easy.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Kaisercraft (Silver Bells); Cardstock: Watercolour paper; Chipboard Title: Scrap Collection; Circle: Room 5; Sequins:  Teresa Collins; Flowers:  Bo Bunny, Petaloo; Mini Words: 13 Arts; Die cuts:  Kaisercraft; Embroidery Floss: DMC White gold metallic thread; Ink:  Distress Oxide (Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers); Lindy's Gang: Shabby Turbine Teal, Bells of Ireland Green; Stencil: Tim Holtz:  Other mediums:  Finnabair Light Paste, Stickles (Mercury Glass); Embossing Powder: Lindy's Gang (Pure White); Stamps:  Altenew, Kaisercraft.

The case file:

I solved the case file as follows:
The Scheme:  All the colours used.

Evidence:  polka dots, stars, christmas elements, circular frame, sequins, glitter, flowers, phrases, die cuts, stamps.

Testimony:  I documented a photo taken on Christmas day 2018.

Some close ups:
 I first applied light paste through a star stencil and then painted some of the mists onto the background.  I used a co-ordinating ink and stenciled the circles and stamped butterfly images around the misted background.  I also fussy cut some of the stamped butterfly images.

 The circular chipboard frame was heat embossed in white.

 I coloured the chipboard title with permanent black ink.

 The flowers and leaves were stamped with Altenew stamps and water coloured using distress oxide inks. 
To give the layout a festive feel I stitched around the edges of the watercolour paper with metallic white gold thread.  The white gold sequins were the perfect finishing touch.  I covered the little holes in the sequins with Mercury Glass Stickles.
