To start I took some watercolor pencils and applied a wet paint brush to them and then painted on the vanilla cardstock in a random back and forth pattern. I then randomly stamped over the watercolor with a script stamp.
On one side of the layout I decided to do some stencil work. I took some texture paste and colored it with acrylic paint to get it to the colors I wanted. Then I applied it using a stencil. I also added a couple of pieces of washi tape coming out from behind the photo on both sides.
I matted the photo and then added some random strips of paper at both the top and bottom of the photo. I felt like it really made the photo stand out but didn't overwhelm it since the background is so busy.
I added some bling around the page and used a wood sticker for the title.
To finish I wanted to add the date so I took a couple of random strips of paper and 2 circles and sewed them onto the bottom of the layout.
I also added a few other embellishments around the page too.
