Happy hump day!  Nicolle here today sharing a layout. Recently Dinosaur restaurant opened up here locally. My son Bret went with his great aunt. I think it was a hit since she took pics. Thinking back to when Bret was a young boy he actually loved watching Jurassic park and The Land Before time. He also had a bunch of dinosaur toys. I kind miss those days a little. That reminds me I actually have a picture of him with a dinosaur on his shirt. Oh to reminisce …;)



Starting with the background stamped images. Thinking of dinosaurs skin textures and coloring I tried to mimic the scale like, rough and crackly look with me stamped images. I stamped the circle bokeh images in the colors of mowed lawn, rusty hinge, forest moss and vintage photo distressed paints. Through the center of the layout I stamped our distressed crackle image using black soot distress stain.

For the out of this world frame I first sprayed some goose bumps texture spray. I applied pine needles distress stain, forest moss, mowed lawn and vintage photo paints to the frame. For added texture I applied rock candy crackle paint and to make it pop I added black soot stain. I was again trying to achieve a dinosaur skin like texture.



For  flourish set 1 and frond set 3 I first sprayed a bit of goose bumps texture spray to the raw chipboard pieces. I then applied pine needle and fired brick distress stains as well as mowed lawn distressed paint.
