I love this photo of my son, Evan, that I snapped of him playing on the beach. Despite it being winter, I wanted my page to have "beachy" feel. The kraft cardstock underneath my photo & journaling helps with that overall feel, as does the turquoise blue + yellow colorscheme. I used the Hydrangea Blue mist to very simply add a bit of depth to the light blue background cardstock.
I used my circle cutter to cut out my "sun" and then pinking scissors to give the sun some "rays". I thought that the sun could use a cloud in front of it, and decided that one of the pages from the Maya Road scalloped chipboard mini album would be perfect as my cloud. I painted my cloud white using white paint, and then after it was dry I sprayed it with the mist. The cloud needed to pop off of my page, so once the mist was dry I used a smaller paint brush to gently edge the scallops on the chipboard cloud with white paint.
The cute, CUTE birdie stamps in the Colonel Mustard Add On kit were a perfect embellishment for this page. To use the bird stamp in a similar way to the way that I did, stamp your image, and then trim from cardstock leaving a "tab" underneath the image like this:
