HAPPINESS 52

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 28, 2014 @ 12:35 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my sweet boy Griffin:
For theme inspiration, I joined along with Finnabair's Cosy Challenge where the challenge is to create a work (layout, collage, canvas, cards - anything goes) that represents the concept of coziness and warmth;
I think this photo of Griffin screams coziness and warmth:
To create this layout, I added texture to a piece of beautiful 7 Dots Studio paper using a Prima stencil and Light Paste. Once dry, I applied various Prima Color Bloom Spray Mist:
For an extra cozy feel, I misted a piece of torn muslin fabric, dried and layered behind the photo:
I stitched on a die cut fleece heart to add to the cozy vibe:
I kept the embellishments to a minimum adding a Prima metal flower and 1 paper flower along with a Prima metal trinket for the title:
Lots of texture:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Scrap365 sketch challenge:
I'm also entering this in the 7 Dots Studio October challenge which is all about texture:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
