Scrapbooking Family Photos

Hello Hello! I'm back again with another Scrapbook page to share! I have been feeling unmotivated to do anything as I struggle with some back pain, so to get myself back into crafting, I made a scrapbook page...
This page kind of evolved a lot during the process. I started playing with paint, mixing Kaisercraft White paint with Sea Breeze to get the Turquoise piece which is painted directly onto the Kraft base (My Minds Eye) and then when it was dry, and hadn't quite worked as it should have (in my head at least) I stamped some Chevrons in Versamark and then applied a bunch of White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then made a circle doily mask, and sprayed a mix of two Perfect Pearls Mists on top, I used Forever Blue and Turquoise, I then moved my cardstock and let the mists run to the top of the page. I set the page aside to dry, and gathered my embellishments -
I used a transparency from Fancy Pants and added a lace doily on top, made my own Chevron flat cover buttons, added a celtic heart metal charm and a hat pin which I coloured up with a Spectrum Noir Marker to match the colour scheme. I also added some hemp twine, and a tag with a little bit of journaling on it. 
I'm entering this into the Kraft it Up August Sketch challenge -
