"Wild Child" by Anita Enright

Happy Thursday Everyone....another working week is nearly done .....which means the weekend and crafting time.

For my share today I created another layout using the Bohemian Bliss collection designed by Sue Smyth.  This is such a beautiful collection and whilst it can be used for boys as well, today I wanted to use a particular photo so ended up pretty and girly.

Taking a piece of the Bee Arty 350gsm white cardstock and sprinkled some of the Sunflower shimmer dust on to the page next activating it with water to move around the page. Ensure that you have the shimmer dust totally dry before repeating it using the Lollipop shimmer dust.

Once I had the Sunflower and Lollipop shimmer dust on the page I decided I wanted to add another colour.  This time I added some of the Peacock shimmer dust.
 Using an array of the patterned papers create a background mat for your chosen photo. Each piece was a different size and shape, with some torn and all distressed. Attach some foam tape to the reverse and when adhering the pieces together do not go right to the edge so that you can tuck in fussy cut pieces.

I coloured some white gauze using some Slipper Artist Ink. I dried this off with a heat gun and then pulled it to pieces so that it became very loose with lots of loose threads.  This was used to post under the layers of fussy cutting pieces.

Using some of the patterned paper off-cuts, die cut several of the open feathers from the Fine Feathers die set.  I also cut several in just white cardstock.  I also cut a couple of solid feathers in some patterned papers.  To add a little feature to the top I also die cut the top portion from the String Leaves die from the Grateful Heart Collection.
I added a large white paper doily to the back of the photo mat cluster, added fussy cut pieces in between the layers and layered the die cut feathers around the photo. I added the "Wild Child" title from the Sweet Talker word sheet. To finish I cut some smallish pieces from the coloured gauze and tucked them under the layers created under the photo and all added a couple of stamped imaged in a matching ink around the photo, add a couple of fussy cut butterflies and a couple of enamel dots from my collection.
