I don’t usually think of Pion papers for dog layouts but I was starring at the  collection the other day and trying to conjure up a layout.  Since nothing was working for me I rolled over to my computer and started looking at Facebook and immediately spied this photo.  Ding ding, that picture sure would look good on those Pion For Father papers I thought to myself.  So here we have Henry who owns Aimee Filimoehala posing so handsomely in the Pacific NW.  He is such a cutie!  Thanks Aimee for letting me use your photo.

First thing I did to make this layout, was mask on some puppy paw prints using  Creative Embellishments muddy paws stencil.  Love this stencil!!

Then, knowing that Henry is a much loved fella, I thought he needed a nice heart border on his layout.  The mottled white effect was created by spraying some white mist on it.  I love how that looks.

The ivy vine from CE was first painted white and then colored with some Lindy’s mist.  I dry brushed some white paint on the flowers just to make it all blend nicely.
