Lynne here and today I'm sharing a layout with you of my grand-son Jackson and his friend Charlie the Beagle. These two, just love each other! So yes, Every Puppy Should Have A Boy!!
Once again, I dug deep in my stash to create this layout. Every year I resolve to use up as much of my stash as I can. I might be kidding myself into thinking I can ever use it all up!!! But I'm trying!
For the background, I layered a some strips of patterned paper, then a wash of gesso. Once dry I added some Shimmerz in blue and orange. On top of that I ran some molding paste and dimensional paint in green through a stencil....these were layered over each other at the same time. Finally, I added strips of torn lace covered in the blue Shimmerz, then some stamping in orange, and some wriggly lines in a teal marker.
Here you can really see the texture I achieved with more dimensional paint, over the chippy keyhole. I used a brush and just dabbed it on.
Of course, my favorite part always includes adding flowers! Yes, even on boy layouts!! The Vintage Velvet Peonies, Briar Roses in Canvas and the Garden Rosettes, layer so beautifully together!! A few smaller blooms, Textured Mini Blossoms, Hydrangeas and Jeweled Florettes, complete the look.
The gorgeous colors of these blooms, keep the look from being too feminine, but add enough softness to keep it from being too harsh.
I hope you enjoyed! See you soon, Lynne.
