King For A Day {12x12 7DS}

Hello Hello!!

it's been a few days since I posted, and I meant to share this one sooner, but there's no time like the present!

I'm sharing a 12x12 that I created for 7 Dots Studio. It's titled 'King For A Day' and documents Gabe's 3rd birthday :)

The base is Dreamer by Finnabair for 7 Dots Studio with a layer of watercolor paper and stitching in black. I worked on the background with some masking tape, drywall tap, coffee splatters and a tiny splattering of iZink in gold, Then I stamped in Yellow Neon by ImaginCRAFTS, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and Archival Black by Ranger with Illumination Stamps (7 Dots Studio) and the new Periodic Table by VLVS!.

Next was a bit of clustering and laying, you can see the stamping really in this photo. I also layered up stickers from 9th wave, diecuts from Nature Walk, From The Heart Flair by UmWowStudio, thread and sequins (some from Gauche Alchemy, some from Pretty Pink Posh)

The focal point of my layout is two photos of ickle goobaloob on his Birthday. He had a crown and everything! the top has been adorned with a crown from UmWowStudio's Photo Booth Props set, painted in iZink gold. I also gave it a few little crowning gems; stars from Star Confetti and a pearl. The alphas come from Pink Paislee (gold) and Domestic Goddess (square alphas.)

And lastly... the bottom right embellishing is more stamping, a splatter of those sequins and a yellow enamel dot actually taken from the center of Dear Lizzy's wooden buttons.
