Painty Fun

Having decided to be more adventurous in my scrapping I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone for this layout.
First of all I tore up various papers, material and tissues and stuck them all over my card.  I also cut circles of rug canvas and stuck them under tissue layers.  I then painted my blur thought bubble leaving the text squares blank.  These I painted white before adding my heading.

I did regretted adding the rug canvas when I came to try and write over it, a smother surface would have been better!
I finished the layout off with lots of doodling round the text and with swirls round the edge.  Doodling over my poly cotton pieces was possible but different to paper.

After this layout I made my next one a lot simpler.  For my 12 x 12 piece of card I used a piece of wallpaper.
 This added a moulded textured background onto which I added extra colour with my water colour pencils and then dabbed distress stain around the top of the photo to mimic the sprouts smeared round my nieces face.

 I mounted the photo onto a doily which I coloured with distress stain and added a dyed button which I mounted onto a dyed wooden embellishment.  To finish it off I threaded seed beads onto thread and threaded them through the holes in the button.
