…munching on cookies…

…well, my little guy was…

After much sweat and tears, rather paper and paint, I finished a new layout, once again featuring my little guy.  I’m entering this into both ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge #23 as well as the first collaboration between CSI and Archi-Scraps.


Like a few of my projects lately, this started out as something else.  The background patterned paper is from DCWV Tattered Time, which looks like aged book paper.  I sponged white paint over most of the background to start fresh, then painted the background in patches of watered down paint in different colors, making sure that they didn’t overlap.  I also  used gesso through chevron stencil to leave small zigzags around the page.  I also used paint for a lot of other bits.  I used watered down paint in mini misters to make paint spatters,  as well as some freehand circles of color.  I also stamped with paint using a circles Inkadinkado stamp set, and used green paint to coordinate part of my title to the color scheme.


I used paper from Amy Tangerine, DCWV Far East and Rock Star, and We R Memory Keepers White Out, along with some fabric with an apple pattern.  I cut out the words “cookies” and “great” from a sheet of patterned paper I got on clearance.  I used word ad shape bits and bobs from a K&Co. ephemera pack.


I like using staples, so there’s a few on this layout too.  They’re awesome for holding clusters together and to the page.  Here’s one where I added some tissue tape and then used gesso and paint to match the star sticker to the color scheme.  Following the Visu-words cue from the Testimony, I used mini yellow letters for all the different words.


The camera tag, as well as the small frame tag are from Amy Tangerine, while the heart and leaf die-cuts I made myself from my stash.  the leaf/feather shape behind the AT tag I cut from a baby wipe I used to clean the paint off my stamps 🙂  I do my best to recycle my leftovers, heh.  The green circle is old paper from my stash that I doodled on, then added a rub-on from my stash.


I used my American Crafts 03 black pen to outline/doodle around a bunch of the elements, and I had fun with it.


Evidence: paint, zigzag, clouds (stamp with paint)

Happy scrapping!
