Behind closed doors...

I have to admit Blue Bay is one of my favourite collections from Kaisercraft at the moment, I have layered several of this collections papers, starting with a full base sheet of  'misty', I have cut diagonally through a sheet of 'sky blue' following the door frames, cutting a few of the doors so they flip open to reveal photos attached to the misty sheet. I have also used doors from the remainder of the sky blue page to layer on top of the first level doors to give a more dimensional effect.  
 For the lace effect on the wooden board down the left hand side I have used the first panel from the reverse of the sea breeze sheet.

 I loved the vintage bike and couldn't bring myself to cover over the front wheel, so using a craft knife I cut the front tyre in a half moon so it could layer over the top of the lace edge.

Now not only is this collection my favourite set of papers I just love the accompanying stamps!
As many who attend our lessons will agree... Since they arrived we've stamped these on virtually every card & scrapbook page we've made in some form or another! 
The one I've used on this page is my front runner, but all of the verses are beautiful and versatile! 

The flowers have all been cut out of the sea breeze sheet, (this is the leftovers from the lace panel). 
I have used quilling dies and matching leaves to create these flowers with added pearls in the middles.

I have lightly distressed a few elements using 'peacock feathers' distress inks. 

I loved the idea with this page that you could hide photos/journaling you didn't wish for everyone flipping through your album to see by closing the doors before putting the page in your album sleeve.

I hope you like the page :) please let me know in the comments what you think :)
