Kinda Eclectic Scrapbook page: display sample

Hi friends, I have another display stamper project for you using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  The photo is one of my favorites from our recent trip to Italy.  We visited a gorgeous vineyard in Tuscany and the seting couldn't have been more beautiful.  I tried to capture the natural beauty of the scenery in the colors, textures and images I chose for this page:
I think you can figure out all the elements I used...the Flowerpot DSP, Skinny Alphabet stamps and Crushed Curry embossing powder for the sunbursts.  I did fussy cut the leaves but it wasn't really that difficult, I promise!  You might be wondering how I got that cool word polka dot background though...wanna see it closer?
Did you guess yet?  I used the Dots Decorative Mask as a stencil--I laid it on my cardstock and then using Crumb Cake ink, stamped the Dictionary background stamp through the circles.  I have to say I was quite please with myself!  Recently, I have seen other demos using markers to color in the dots and doodling all sorts of things and I think that's just genius!  I just stamped through the hole for a stenciled effect.  Simple!

I hope you liked my scrapbook page today...join me again on Sunday when I will be back stamping with my Paper Players pals.  Until then, have a great weekend!

Fabulous scrapbook page, the picture surely captured the beauty of Tuscany and you and family enhanced it. Great idea about stamping through the polka dot stencil, how come I never think of things like that!

Nance this page layout is fabulous! LOVE LOVE LOVE your polka dot background and thanks for giving me a perspective of the SIZE of the those stencils. Your sunburst looks like it's part of the photo.... and such a nice photo of your family. I really like all the elements of the page..fussy cut and all. Great job. Hugs
