Inspired by....

Hi friends,
I have a layout that was on the American Crafts Blog this past week that I would love to share with you.
Pinterest is my go to source for inspiration.  Using stamps and watercolors I recreated a fun background I found on Pinterest.

how to:
Splatter white spray ink onto Ash cardstock.  Set aside to dry.  Stamp XO stamp onto white cardstock (13 times) using black dye ink, and fussy cut around the edges.  Use watercolors to color the inside of the stamped image.  Adhere 4x6 photo to bottom right hand side of layout.  Stamp chevron stamp onto left and right side of photo (make sure it overlaps onto Ash Cardstock) using white dye ink.  Use Knockouts star punch to punch a star on the top right hand side of page.  Adhere negative (from punched star) and adhere it just below.  Trim strips from Shimelle die cuts and adhere to top right hand side of page (just underneath star punch).  Use a sewing machine to stitch strips down with black thread.  Use watercolor paints to paint DIY thickers with yellow and white paint.  Adhere to page just above photo spelling out the words 'run' and 'run'.  Use small black stickers to spell out the word 'dog' in the title.  Use sewing machine to stitch black journaling lines on bottom left hand side of page.  Use a white pen to add journaling.  Stamp date stamp onto bottom left hand side of page (just under journaling).  Finish by adhering enamel dots and chevron multi chip thickers.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back later this week with more fun projects!
