September Kit Pages - Son Shine

This LO is a shot of my DS on the beach on holiday - complete in all his sun gear and new I called it Son Shine made from the goodies in the Scrap Rat September Kit... it's packed with goodies ( my favourite kit yet) - My Minds Eye, Pink Paislee, Echo Park, Authentique and those vintage bits.  If you need some inspiration then check out the Design Team Gallery, I am going to post my pages over the next few days so that I can give you a bit more detail about what I did with all those goodies (and so it isn't the most mammoth post!)

For the LO I used some of the Sunshine MME paper as the base, and layered up a couple of the echo park pieces of paper...they were white and grey so to warm them up I coloured them all over in tea dye distress ink (this is what I also used to colour the title - just rub it over and the white resist on all the letters shows up).  I used my Martha Stewart doily edge lace punch down the edge of these 2 pieces of paper and ruffled and stitched them, I also added some of the trim inked with tea dye distress ink behind the punched pieces.  For the photo I used the MME Acetate overlay which I stuck in the corners with 4 dots of clear glue.  I also inked and tore some of the manuscript paper and added this behind the papers and the gold backed playing card.  Next I started to plan my stitched swirls and I lightly drew them on in pencil and then pin pricked the holes, rubbed out the pencil and stitched the swirls.  I made a flower out of the mistables trims and painted on some brown tea dye (just used a paint brush a little tea dye ink on my mat and some water).  I stitched it into a flower and added some watered down stickles and a brad with some punched flowers for the centre.  I added a couple more bits of stitching, one to the manuscript paper and some cross stitches to the trim.  I made a coffee stain using a glass and some distress ink in the top corner of the page, and then some Martha Stewart butterflies which I layered and stitched down the middle.  Hope you enjoyed that :)
