Here is the first stage of my page. I used the 6" paper pad and cut out lots of 3" base by 2" high triangles - I was struggling to choose between all the beautiful papers, so I decided to just pull out some of my favourites from the 6" pad and patchwork them together on the page!

I added a few embellishments around the photo, some from the Noteworthy collection and the others cut out from the cut-a-part paper Rejoice.
For my next version I added lots of machine stitching. I glued the triangles in the centre, so my machine needle would not get caught up in any stickiness from tapes or glues, and added lines of stitching across the page. I stitched around the 2 photo mount papers, and added some more of the Noteworthy phrases across the page. To highlight my photo a little more I used some Pentart White Acrylic Primer, and then on either corner of the paint I added in just a small brush full of the Pentart Yellow Lasur Gel. As with all the paints I've used from Pentart, the pigment is really good, so you just need a little bit of yellow and it goes a long way.
For my final version I trimmed 1/2" off 2 sides of my double dot base, then added orange and yellow ink around the edges and mounted the page on the Blessings paper. I also added in some of the vellum and smaller triangles on foam pads to the centres of the larger triangles.
You can see some of the Yellow Gel that I added to the page in little drip shapes - the gel is glossy and shiny so it adds a different effect to your page.
This is a closer look at the Acrylic Primer mixed with a little bit of the Yellow Lasur Gel, as well as the beautiful gold foiled vellum from this collection.
