Hello crafty friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout for all of our pet lovers out there!
There has been a cutfile in the shop that I have been eyeing and the idea finally came to light! Today I'm sharing a mixed media layout featuring the In The Doghouse cutfile and the new Lower Case Funky Alpha cutfile!
I began with the mixed media portion of my layout. I gessoed the background with clear gesso as a prep. Once dry, I used a paw print stencil I had to add 3 dimensional paw prints to the back ground  If you don't have a stencil already, you can easily make your own with this cutfile! I let that sit and dry completely because the next step was to add the color.  I add some colored mists and then spray some water so the color would run and puddle around the paw prints. I added a few layers of grey, silver and brown, letting each dry in between the next layer of color. once all areas of color were dry, I added splatters.
To accent those areas of mixed media, I used the cutfile to create coordinating paw prints. For the papers and embellishments for this layout, I used the Bella Blvd. Cooper collection. This paper matched my splatters almost perfectly!
I then used other elements in the cutfile to create a dog house and bones, cutting those from different pattern papers. I created a cute little scene with diecuts from the collection and two photos of our family pup, Odie, who was playing with my son and is huge popit!
Lastly, I curled the edges of my layout, added a few staples and bones to accent it, and adhered my title using the second cutfile. I welded my letters together before cutting it so it was easier to place.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope you've been inspired!
