The main photo is one of my favorite pictures I took there. I love how excited Jon is and that we also happened to get Greg and my brother and sister-in-law in the background. Greg looks pretty excited too! This was the Bionicle ride (Lego robot characters) so I wanted to have lots of metal and gears on the page but still make it bright and cheery. I put metal foil tape onto paper and embossed it. I painted it with various colors of Distress Paint (love how it goes on metal!) and then gave it a light sanding when dry so the metal would show through. The chipboard gears I painted with Brushed Pewter paint and then applied Distress Stains over the top. I sealed it all in with a coat of clear embossing powder.
For the background, I used Super Heavy Gel and a stencil to make the raised punchinella pattern. After it was dry I brushed on the Silk Acrylic Glaze and added some misting and spatters. Fun stuff!
