I created this page a little while ago using the etcetera collection from BoBunny - even though it is an older line I love the papers and vintage feel to it - I used it for an article on ATDML blog looking at stamping on pages (here is the link) and I also did a post looking a using some gold (here).
I started the page with some drips of Blue Patina glimmer mist - this paper really soaks it in, so it adds to the vintage look. Then I started with my layers and roughly cut some hessian/burlap fraying the edges, then I used some of the journal cards (one of which was the inspiration for the title), lots of distressing and inking. I also used some liquid pearls to add little pearl drops to the edges of some of the papers. Once I had stuck the photo on top I went about making my own little kite, I cut out 2 kite shapes - cutting one into 4 and leaving the other whole, then mounted 2 of the triangles from the cut up shape onto the base kite using foam pads - I also doodled little triangles on it too. I used wet glue and created a line to stick my pearl string too, tucking the end under the photo, I then made some bunting with stamped words for the kite too.
This is my youngest earlier on in the year flying a friends kite on a beach....yes we do this a lot!
