Funny Face


I'm back with a Quirky Kit main kit/lite kit mash-up to share today. I took these snaps of DS3 just the other day, he looked so cute clutching his teddy with his fingers in his mouth! I printed the picture off in black and white so I had total freedom with my colour scheme. I used ILS pops of PP for the base from the main kit & stenciled a chevron border in mustard seed to tie in the yellow photo mat which is a journalling card from the EP PP in the lite kit.
Here is a closer pic so you can see the layering. Theresa Collins for the ripped paper, a kraft tag, a little EP mint stripe and more of the EP journalling cards cut up and used in various different ways, including for the title. I couldn't resist dipping into a previous kit for the star punchinella, it really helps the photo stand out I think! The punched out circle is a scrap of ILS paper I had left over from a previous layout.
You can see here how I used the Studio Calico letter stickers,die cut arrows, cirles and stars from scraps to embellish along with a few drops of weathered wood distress ink. The way I tend to work is I design my photo mat first and stick it together without sticking it onto my base. I then ink and spatter the base after I have decided where I want to put the mat. After the mat is fixed to the page I can add any other embellishments I want.
I have used the fabulous ScrapFriends sketch to make this layout here...

Thanks for looking!
