My Family is Music to my Soul

Lately, I've been involved in a "Circle Journal" in my COF. This is the first two pages of a CJ for a friend of mine. The topic is to scrap about "What, Who or Where is the music to your soul." My first thought of this is my family. Therefore, I've used the title "My family is music to my soul".
Here are the steps to these two pages.
1) I've used the Masking with Cricut Cut-Outs technique all over these two pages. I've used some distress ink to do the masking. (vintage photo, brushed corduroy, black soot)
2) For page 1, I've layered a few pieces of pattern papers underneath the photograph. All pattern papers had been distressed using the scissors and inking technique.
3) I've drawn a part circle and stitched on it in page 1. I've also used the Dimensional Leaves with Folding technique to create the leaf. The sunflower had been coloured using distress ink (spiced marmalade).
4) To add some softness to it, I've added a ribbon on the page.
5) For page 2, I've actually printed a wash out photograph of my family on the card stock before I do the masking.
6) The journaling had been printed on vellum. The flourishes in browns is actually the one I've used to do the masking on both pages and I've hand-drawn the black colour flourishes.
7) The musical note have been hand drawn and cut out from an alcohol inked glossy paper.

These are my first two pages of CJ for my friends. There are more to come and you all will get a chance to learn more about me through these pages. Hope you all like it!
