"Nothing Can Dim the Light...." by Anita Enrght

Welcome back this Monday to the Bee Arty Blog.

For my share with you today I have used the Fearless, Brave and Free collection designed by the amazing Fiona Paltridge.  It is such a funky collection and just goes perfectly with the cheeky photo of my nephew Thomas.

 Using some scraps I cut two sets of the "Abstract Circles" metal dies and then placed them on to the white cardstock in a pattern that I liked.

I didn't have a colour spray that I wanted to use on my layout so I improvised and poured some of my "Cider" Artist Ink in to a spray bottle.  I wanted the richness of the ink so I didn't water it down at all.  I then sprayed over the "Abstract Circles" die cuts that I placed on the cardstock.
Below is the affect that it created.
Once the background was dry I stamped with an archival black ink pad the "Fearless" and "Cool Words" stamps over the page. I then added some more background using the "Free Hand" A5 stencil.
Next I die cut the "Frame" in a navy cardstock.
Next cut out some of the triangles and diamond shaped pieces from the "Leap" cut and colour sheet.  I then used the "Cider" Artist Ink and a fine paint brush to colour in the pieces.
Behind the photo I used a piece of torn book paper, I layered the photo on some cardboard off-cuts and then laid the navy cardstock "Frame" die cut over the front of the photo on an angle. 

I attached the photo to the page and then attached the fussy cut pieces to the page, cutting a couple in half to put behind the photo cluster and then mount others on cardboard or foam tape on to the page.  

Add the chosen title, mine came from the "Within" patterned paper, deconstructing it.  Each word was mounted on some foam tape before gluing to the page.

To finish the page I added a Charms Creation embellishment and a flare button from my stash.

Below are some closeups of my finished page.
