Wild About You!

This is another layout from the fabulous Scraps Of Darkness, "Welcome To The Jungle" kit. It features some photos of my son, Draven and our little dog, Jack. I took these photos for our Christmas card back in 2005. As you can see, Draven and Jack are like two peas in a pod, so that is where the title "Wild About You!" came from.

The first layer is a piece of white cardstock from my stash. I took a Prima Stencil and created the the edges by first applying a layer of gel medium over the stencil and then taking a stencil brush and dabbing red acrylic paint  onto the top for color and texture.

I then created the center strip using the same technique on a piece of black cardstock from the May add on, and then fussy cut it out.

Next I took and cut out frame layers from 2 different kit Bo Bunny pps and a piece of red cardstock from my stash. I then distressed and inked the edges and stacked them using foam tape for dimension. I then took my photo of Draven & Jack into Photo Shop and painted the edges to get the look I wanted for the layout, and added it on top of the pp layers with foam tape.

 I took a smaller photo of those wild boys and cut it out inked the edges, cut a piece of corrugated white paper and inked it's edges then attatched the photo onto it and then added a Dusty Attic Hinge that I painted and stamped to attatch it to the large photo.

I took some of the Art Parts leaves from the color add on and painted them with red acrylic paint and then painted some stripes onto them with white acrylic paint. I took the Black Prima flowers from the kit and layered them in with the leaves to create the flower layer.

I took some of the chipboard flowers from the kit and painted them black then stamped them with white staz on ink and layered them into the pp layers.

I took some thickers and stamped them with white staz on to create the "Wild". I stamped the word "about", and used some glitter thickers for the "you". I took a piece of chipboard from the Scraps Of Darkness store, inked it with red ink, then stamped it with black ink and attatched it under the word "Wild" for added interest.

I enjoyed doing this fun and creative layout, and I hope you enjoyed it as well! ~Renea
