My Little Buddy

I was kindly given this fab paper from a scrapper I admire (and whose work I was admiring at the time when she used this paper) Natalie @ Scrapbook Challenges

To put this layout together I used Bo Bunny - Hip Hip Hooray Primary Number Paper which I dry brushed with blue acrylic paint around the edges.

I then painted a oblong of white paint just above the middle left of the patterned paper and stamped some uneven dotted lines on this once it was dry. Around the edge of this box I added a border of Liquid Pearl in mint green. I also stamped a newt in green ink and added glossy accents before it was dry to give it a mottled effect.

I embossed some red mulberry paper using a pebble pattern fiskars plate and placed the photo of my gorgeous grandson on the top of this, to which I added a border of red Liquid Pearls.

After this I added some butterflies with gems, a big arrow, a paint splodge and buttons.

I wanted my title to stand out so I used a old webbing belt as a background and used white Thickers letters. I dry brushed letters with red & blue paint then used a permanent ProMarker in bright yellow to fill in the gaps.

I love this layout as it is bright and fun.

Thanks for looking
