Family for Picture This

Hey there all! It's time for the mid month challenge reveal at Picture This! The new criteria for this challenge is to create a project using: 2 photos + Polka dots + family
Here's what I created following the criteria.
For this page I used some older Prima papers that I had stashed from the Rondelle collection. I started the background by cutting the page along the newsprint at the bottom and fussy cutting around the flowers. Then I mounted the two halves onto a piece of plain cardstock, leaving the cut edge unglued so that I could tuck a couple strips of torn patterned paper in. To add interest I stamped around where my design was going then added some texture using a bubble stencil and modeling paste. Once the paste dried I traced a few of them using a black thin marker. Next I added splatters of acrylic paint in black and white. Then I started adding the layers that were going under the photos (mounted on thin cardboard and tucked under the fussy cut flowers). I inked the edges of my photos black and mounted each one on thin cardboard before placing them on top of the layers for a touch of definition and dimension. Once the embellishments were in place I gave the page a few more light splatters as a finishing touch.
Now it's your turn and I can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for dropping in! Hope you have an awesome day!
