Happy Saturday CE friends! I hope everyone is having an awesome spring or fall wherever you are! Creative embellishments is one of the sponsors this month at CSI colorstoriesinspiration ning site. We are also guest designers. I created a layout around my sweet little fur baby Kosmo. He just tickles me. He is so vocal and I don’t just mean barking but the grunting and other funny sounds to communicate. I believe if he had the ability to talk. I love his hugs and playing fetch. Although he is quite the bossy type and would play all day if you let him inside and outside the house. He love to sit on my lap next to my other mini dachshund Otis. I love all my dogs like my they are my babies but have to admit dachshunds are my fave breed. 198 copy (1)

How I cracked case file 198

Evidence: stripes, tree, music elements, animal (pic), weather related.

Journaling is tucked behind the photo: Hide and seek journaling…. Which says.. Kosmo is the most loyal and playful pups of the dogs here. He is also funny. Everytime we let him outside he takes a lap around the pool. He loves to chase birds away, playing fetch and giving kisses. If you are upset he gives the best hugs. We all get a kick out of him even my hubby Mike.

It’s not that he doesn’t like dogs he just prefers not to have them. We all know who won in this situation 😉

Nicolle Kramer #198I altered the hexagons with Th distress paint. The background has little paw prints that I added to the background using our new muddy paw prints stencil and some coarse pumice to create a sort of soapstone- ish look. I also tried mimicking that on the fancy circle frame adding TH paints in grey and brown tones after adding the coarse pumice. (I mix it with heavy gesso before applying.) The tree also had the that texture and I used TH distress paints to alter that as well. The title piece you are my sunshine was simply altered with my go to Th paints as well as flourish 10. I added white TH paint to the wood veneer clouds.
