Beautiful Day ....Creative Embellishments

Hello! I have to share a mixed media layout today using the fabulous chipboard by Creative Embellishments. This time I get out of my comfort zone playing with a dark background and gold tones but I had a lot of fun and I love the final result!
This photo is a lovely memory from my workshops in Peru last September, These lovely ladies attended my classes and we had a great time it was a Beautiful day,
I started applying black gesso over a black cardstock, then I gave textures with a stencil and modeling paste. 
I painted the background with mica powders. My inspiration to create this page was the title chipboard Beautiful Day that I embossed with a gold color.
I used the Circles chipboard to create the design on the background. First I embossed it on gold color to create the sparkling effect. Then I cut the circle panel in four pieces and placed them behind and around the photo.

The title looks really nice with the sparkling effect. I used the 14 karat- embossing powder by Blue Fern Studios.

 Some of the details, textures and layers...
