Happy Thursday Friends! Nicolle here again today to share another layout. We recently got a new puppy Kosmo (mini long haired dachshund). We all just love him to pieces. I can’t say the same for my older dogs. Well …he plays with Roscoe. Clyde is tolerating him a little better and Otis tolerates him the most and well he even lets the pup beat up on him a little to much. I am assuming it’s a male dominance thing. He sort of a brat right now but super friendly towards people. I think once he is an adult Kos an Otis will besties.  I hope you aren’t sick of seeing the pup by now. There will probably be more to come.;)



To start I stamped our hearts image using primas chalk edger in the color black coal.

Hearts Stamp

I altered our Crazy For You title piece with broken china distress paint and then applied some yellow acrylic paint with a dry brush.

For flourish 23 I simply applied forest moss  and antiqued linen distress paints. I was trying to mimic the color of the flourishes on the paper. The color is more of a sea foam green ..I got as close as I could.  I colored the flourish on the Flourish heart frame the same and altered the heart part with maya gold in grey. The monarch butterfly was also altered with maya gold in grey.




The wood veneer bumble bee was altered with a white faber castell artist big pitt pen for the wings. The body was altered with a yellow prima chalk edger.
