Day dreaming - Berry71blue

Good Morning to you all, 

Today it is my turn to show you my project for the month of October. 
As you all know, keren has this wonderful challenge up this month

"Mixed Media Madness" 

Story behind the picture: 
I went to a lovely wedding on the island of Rhodes a few weeks ago. 
This is Leo, the son of the bride and groom. After running around the whole day he had a little moment and put his head on his fathers shoulder to rest.
And that was my moment to take this gorgeous picture. 

What did i not use on this layout??
I used Modeling paste, Dylusions ink sprays, fine glitter paint, distress ink, stamps.
As you can also see i used some lovely goodies from the Zeus and Zoe shop. HERE
Beautiful flowers of Manor house and some lovely golden buttons.

The chipboard hot air balloon:
I first colored it with copic markers, than i added ( Tattered angels ) glimmer glaze on top of it to give it a shimmer. I wanted to give it a look, so it seemed that it was flying trough the i sprayed some dylusional ink spray over the balloon. The glaze and ink spray did not blend very well, but it was perfect for the effect that i wanted to give. After i added the stamp of the hot air balloon so it gave a shadow effect. 

The sentiment: May your travels lead you to some amazing places. 
I thought it fits nicely with the picture because the little man was dreaming away.

Before i glued down the chipboard in the left hand corner i sprayed over it with brown and turquoise ink spray.

Paper: Fabscrap
