Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout

For this scrapbooking layout I used a photo I had taken of friends in Rome as a starting point for the colour scheme. They are in a band, so I reflected the music theme with the acetate record (Glitz Designs - Cashmere Dame) and die cut cassette tape (Kaisercraft).
I created the grungey brick background with a  wall stencil (Viva Decor) and texture paste.  I coloured it with Distress Inks and spritzers and rubber stamps.

I was pleased with the butterflies, which I made by stamping vellum with a Kaisercraft sheet music stamp, then embossing with Tim Holtz distress powder. I then punched them out with 2 different size butterfly punches and attached with clear glue dots.

Supplies: Crate Paper - Open Road, Prima Flowers & leaves, MME - brads, Webster's Pages - Word art and vellum, Basic Grey - Soleil (circle banner) and re-painted chipsticker flourish.
Acetate Heart - Maggic Holmes.
I used Joanne Brisebois digital overlays on the photo, for the vintage and vignette effect.

I was inspired by the following challenges:
SDC April Challenge - Circles
Virginia's View Challenge - Layers
C'est Magnifique April Challenge - Sketch
That's Crafty Challenge - Grunge
