Smile Sister with Amy Prior

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing a layout featuring a photo of my mum and 2 of her sisters that was taken at my wedding many years ago.

To create the background for this layout, I have started off with a piece of American Crafts 12x12 Double Thick White Cardstock that I have added stencilling to using some Dina Wakely - White Gesso. Once the Gesso was dry, I have added some Leafing Adhesive over the top of the gesso before rubbing some Gold Leaf randomly over the top. I like to use Gold leaf instead of gold sheets as it gives a much more random and varied look as you can see here. 

Once the gold leaf was all done, I have then splattered some small bits of Colour Blast - Colour Spray - Bubblegum, and Colour Blast - Colour Spray - Rainforest around the background to bring a little more colour to the page ready for my colourful layers.  I have then cut lots of random rectangles out of My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Patterned papers and American Crafts - Gold Glitter 12x12 Cardstock to layer around my photograph. I have added a doily from my stash into the layers also.

The final step for this layout was to embellish and for this page I have added some  My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - 12x12 Chipboard StickersMy Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Acrylic WordsMy Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Cardstock StickersMy Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Cardstock Stickers - Alphabet & Words, plus some handmade flowers from my stash. To add a little gold to the flowers, I have simply rubbed a little Inka Gold - Gold over the tips of the flower petals and the layout was complete. 

Complete list of products used for this layout include:
