Trying to get back on schedule here!! Today, I am sharing my DT layout for the April Challenge over at 1~2~3 Get Scrappy. But first, let's look at the challenge board.......
I used the top row: Earth Tone Background, Frame and Wood Element. Here is my take on the challenge.
I have been hoarding the BoBunny Et Cetera Collection for a long time, and I finally decided to use it for this layout! For the background, I sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang's Starburst Spray in Cocoa Bean Copper through a Prima Stencil, and then added a bit of stamping with Tim's Vintage Photo Distress Ink and my fave Kaisercraft Stamp 'Script'.
I used the cut apart sheet from the collection, as my photo mats. In between those layers, I added some Prima Wood Icon Frames, which I left bare. I know, they look white, but they're not. The flowers are Petaloo Sugared Blooms and Faux Dried Minis, as well as one Prima in brown....Rodanthe, I think. The long brown piece under the pic, is a small stick, which I painted a wash of Dark Burnt Umber Paint and water mix, over, and then quickly wiped it off.
My title is the first sticker.....that face. Love his face!!!!!! Mason, my grand-son, in case you didn't know. The stickers are all from Heidi Swapp, 2 different packages, which I mixed together. I added more Prima Frames, and one word from the Wood Icons, which was also painted with Dark Burnt Umber. I went around the stickers with the Vintage Photo Distress Marker, and washed over it with water.
I enjoyed doing this layout!!! It's been a while, since I've worked with mostly neutrals, so it was refreshing!! Of course the splashes of green, really make this piece stand out!
