ME 2014

Left over bits and pieces and yet you just can't seem to throw them away.  Kathleen here with you today to share a layout that was such fun to create.

The theme over at Chattering Robin's this month is things with wings.  Perfect for me since I can be a bit flighty!  lol 

This whimsical layout was inspired by this matte/sheen animal print paper.  I start by gather up bits and pieces of left over papers that coordinated with my back ground paper.  There is so much movement, texture and depth of color in the Robin's Nest-Brown Animal Glitter Cardstock  which made it easy to begin my layout without added texture or paint!  Easy peasy.

Next I worked on my design and paper placement.  I have this wonderful balloon stamp and used it on some left over paper then cut them out to tuck into the design.  The wings were embossed with several different colors to blend into the papers.

I distressed the edges of the paper bits.  stacked them then glued them in place.  Then tucked some turquoise lace here and there. Now it is time for a bit of paint.  I would dab the paint with a baby wipe and later use this wipe behind the outer edges of the design  creating a lovely cloud space.

Here is a close up of the gear with Robin's Nest-Safari mini Dew Drops.

Now for the finished product!
