Happy Tuesday CE friends! Nicolle here today with a fun layout. It’s football season and well my hubby looks forward to it. I used to be a fan in High school but I just don’t care for all the negative things going on. I have a hard time when the laws aren’t exactly the same for everyone. Some of the players are less then a decent role model. That’s just my opinion….. In any event it was a fun chance to get a picture of the hubs and I together. The bills are supposed to have a real good team this year…but we will see.

I started with stamping lumiere paints with our animal print stamp. (zebra/tiger) I of course used the colors of the team. Zubaz are a big deal too and took that into consideration when creating it. I altered the football frame starting with adding gesso into the engraved parts of the frame. I then layered 3 different color greens to the grass part of the frame. I used TH mowed lawn, garden grass prima chalk edger and faber castell green gelato. The football was layered with a few different brown TH stains and paints. For highlights I used a white gel pen for the ties and black gel pen for the stitching and other details.The uprights were altered with TH and lumiere paints. The wood veneer stars were altered with russet lumiere paint.
