Hi everyone… hope your having a spectacular month. I’m here to share a layout I did featuring my daughter and our two precious fur babies. IMG_0997First off, using modeling paste I used a honeycomb stencil for texture. Then using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Afternoon Delight Denim” I randomly sprayed and dripped the mists.  Next up I dry brushed a light coat of gesso over the entire background just to soften. I then prepared my photos by distressing the edges and applied cardboard to the back to lift the photos a bit.

My chicken wire panel was coated with Viva Paper Soft Color in Indigo as well as my titles which were from the Happy Words Set and Celebrate Words Set. After my title was dry I covered it with Distressed Stickles in Chipped Sapphire. My chicken wire chipboard piece I split it in 3 parts and snuggled it around the photos and glued in place. Next I used Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel and mixed chunky green and blue glitter and added it to the centers of some of the chicken wire.IMG_1005bI then decided to use my bird  and sea grass chipboard. The sea grass had two different green acrylics added and then Pine Needles Distressed Stickles added for texture. The sweet little bird chipboard was sprayed with Lindy’s Afternoon Delight Denim and then highlighted with green acrylic paint. For the texture on his belly I add a bit of Art Basics White Sand Modeling paste and then painted it with green acrylic paint. IMG_1001aLast but not least I added assorted florals and twigs. The flowers had a bit of Crystal Stickles added to the petals for a pretty bit of bling. I hope you enjoyed and were inspired to create with us. xoxo Toni
