Mixed media layout- inspiration.

Hello everyone
I am back with a new project today and it is a mixed media layout....this one is made to celebrate friendship and I really hope it reflects that...... I have a lot of pictures taken and I hope you guys enjoy it. I am also writing down the procedure and supplies used to make this project. I am entering this project at monthly challenge at Papericious blog- Make it 3D, Itsybitsy challenge, Scrapping4fun challenge #83 and Addicted to stamps.
I started with pattern paper from Papericious Wedding paper pack. I distressed it on the edges using a Tim Holtz distressing tool. Brushed the paper with a coat of white gesso. Allowed it to dry completely and then I did some stenciling on the paper using a feather stencil and a script stencil both from Itsybitsy and some texture paste (Home made by me).
Further to add texture I did some heat embossing using Prima Marketting stamps and Gold Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I also stamped at a few places with scallop circle stamp using Black archival ink. Used a little micro beads to add some water dripping effects and a little sand grains like texture at a few places.
Once everything was thoroughly dried, I added Color Splash colors from Itsybitsy....I just used Tangerine and Ocean Mist.

I made my own pattern papers for matting the photo....I have used distress inks and few different stamps to make my own papers. I have distressed the edges of all the pieces to give them more dimension.
The bottom most paper is made by stamping script stamp from Prima Marketing on white Iris cardstock using Rich Cocoa Momento dye ink.
The rainbow effect is obtained by ink blending Squeezed lemonade, mermaid lagoon and Spun sugar on white Iris cardstock. I then heat embossing Kaisercraft stamp Botanical using white embossing power from Ranger.
The butterfly stamp from Kaisercraft is stamped on white iris cardstock using Pink Gumball dye ink from Ranger to get the pink butterfly paper.
The uppermost piece of paper is made by stenciling versamark on white iris cardstock and heat embossing with clear embossing powder from Wow. I then ink blended Mermaid lagoon distress ink on the paper.
I arranged all the pieces of paper on top of each other. I added chipboard pieces in between layers to add dimension.
Then comes the fun part.....embellishments and flowers... i have used doilies, mulberry flowers, Mft flourish diecuts, resin frames and flowers, pearls, mdf butterfly diecut, butterflies and much more.....loved this bit and I throughly enjoyed myself.




Happy button is from Papericious, the little metal embellishment is from Eno greetings, laces and trims are from Itsybitsy and so are many little embellishments used.
The four words are hand written on white iris paper and then distressed on the edges with antique linen distress ink. The words are written with waterproof permanent black pen and then given a edge with gold pen. The words are matted on black chipboard pieces and then coated with glossy accents.
To add the final touches, I have used clear Wink of Stella at a few places as well as some some Twinklets Diamond dust
I am adding a little video of the project where you will be able to see it a littermore closely. However due to bad cold and cough, I do not have an audio walkthrough....I hope you all like this and thank you for visiting me. Have a good week ahead....
