Explore and Discover – Nicole Doiron

Hello Dusty FANattics!
Nicole here, hoping that that you are having a fabulous April.

Today I have a fun boy page to share with you.

On my background of 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy patterned paper, I used black embossing paste with my favorite Dusty Attic stencil, Gradient, to create some linear effect. I then sprayed some green and orange mist to match the circles cut out from the paper. I wanted these colours to pop against the gray base and the black and white photos.

I painted the titles Explore and Discover with Capri Dusty in Colour paint, misted it with a darker shade of green and then dabbed a little Sunburnt Orange paint.

I cut in two the Geometric Corner piece and bits of the Diamond Panel and slipped them
behind both pairs of photos to extend the vertical layout.

I dabbed both Sunburnt Orange and Bisque paint on the Page Pebbles.

I really love the blueprint collection including this super cool Blueprint Rocket. The photos are of little Tristan sneaking into the dryer as if it was his own personal spaceship, so I thought this would be the rocket was the perfect addition to my page. I added a few of the travel theme Wordplay to go along with this whole theme.

I struggled a bit with this page at first, but I am so happy with how it turned out.
