Scrapbooking - Kraft It Up September

Hello! I have a couple of projects to share over the coming days, so keep an eye out for the various bits and bobs :) Here is a scrapbook page I completed this evening -
I used a piece of Stampin' Up!'s Crumbcake (Kraft) card stock, and dolloped some white paint onto the cardstock, with a dry brush, I spread all the paint out until I'd gotten most of it into the area I wanted. I set it aside and waited for it to dry. I collected my patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket and Kaisercraft) and distressed all the edges, as well as sanding them back a little bit. I also cut out a Spellbinders border die out of black cardstock and roughed it up as well. Once the paint was dry, I grabbed a Twiddleybitz mask and sponged Wild Wasabi Ink over the top. I then put together my layout. I found a Kaisercraft acetate shape, and glued it behind my photo and stitched the polka dot paper in place. I then made a journalling circle using Kraft cardstock, white cardstock and two dies. The 'date' has been made with my dymo labeller. Here are some close ups - 
The colours are more true in these photos... I have just shown some of the embellishment clusters (you know I love a good cluster!) 
The title is Hunter Botanical Gardens. 
I am entering this into the Kraft It Up September Challenge, which was to use the following colour palette-
Thanks for popping by!
