This was a fun page I made with my 2 year old niece. I placed stickers on the page for the title. Next I placed a lid and 4 quarters on the page where I wanted my paw print and claws to go. After my masks were in place I added a water down mix of paint in clumps over the title letters. To ensure coverage of the letters I brushed the paint over the letters. With a straw and the help of my niece we blew the paint mixture over the letters and down the page. What fun right?

This is a page from our wedding last summer.

This is a 3tailschippie. I painted and glittered the bottom piece. I cut the letters on my Cricut and followed a Sketch Support page for the design on the title.

Here's another 3 tailschippie. This chippie is so amazing!!! I love this technique... I wanted it to look like I dunked it in teal paint/glitter and dipped the other side in burgundy paint/glitter. The flower was from a swap hosted by Crafty Mom of 5. I wish I could credit the artist of this flower, but when my step-daughters found my stash of swap flowers so my stash was wrecked. I didn't mind because I loved seeing how excited they were to craft. I tried making a faux hat pin with my new polymer clay molds: by PenniJo.I'm beyond impressed with these molds and I had a great time playing with them and look forwards to my next clay play day. I realized the hat pin thing was not working so I added beads and twirled some wire to give it a flying butterfly look.

Here's a faux lock and key hat pin. I also did the dipped glitter/paint on the bird with faux florish.
On the side I have a tag hanging out and when you pull the tag two more pictures are revealed

Oct. 10 Layout of the Week "Thirst" by Lisa Ann

Just in time for Halloween Jessica picked "Thirst" by Lisa Ann as Layout of the Week. Jessica called this a page a beguiling and creative layout. She also said "From the dark, mysterious colour palette to the detailed layers, it's impossible not to find yourself drawn into this gorgeously eerie page." True, true, true. What creative techniques at play and I just adore how she played with the photo as well

And here's a link to the original post:
