Happy Family Layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone... I decided to do a layout with my beautiful daughter and our two fur babies using Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces. I love this chipboard because it is intricately gorgeous and takes so many different kinds of medium.
I first wanted texture on my layout so using modeling paste and my honeycomb stencil I randomly added it to the background paper. Then using my Lindy's Afternoon Delight Denim spray I dripped and splattered this on the paper.  I then distressed the edges of the photos and added them to the page. 
It was now time to alter my CE chipboard pieces. I used the chicken wire and cut it in 3 parts using Viva Paper Soft in Indigo, I colored my CE pieces including my title. Then I adhered this to my layout using Glossy Accents. 
Then I decided to add some sparkle, so I used Art Basics 3D Gel Medium and put a scoop of blue chunky glitter and then mixed some 3D Gel Medium with green chunky glitter and added it to different parts of the chicken wire. 
For the sea grass and bird, I first added Art Basics White Sand Modeling Paste for texture, I also added a little bit on the birds belly. Allowed to dry completely. Then the sea grass got two coats of different acrylic green paints. Once dry I covered it with Distressed Stickles in Pine Needles. The bird was sprayed with Lindy's Afternoon Delight Denim and then touches of green acrylic paint were added for interest. 
Last but not least, flowers and twigs were glued on using my glue gun and crystal Stickles were added to the pettals. I hope you enjoyed and please drop by the blog for some wonderful inspiration from our design team.
