I have another LO for you this week of my gorgeous Pupster who is now named Ollie :D
I bought him and Rolo tags with their names on this week ready for him coming to live with us, which inspired this weeks layout :D
I started by printing the photo on to canvas paper - downside to this is it doesn't photograph well as it has a glossy surface.
I ripped a hole in the Cosmo Cricket paper and used a distress tool around the edges of the frame and around the outside edge of the paper.
Next I used Crushed Olive and Wild Honey distress inkpads and covered the whole paper Tim-style blending the colours together as I went.
I then spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer mist and diluted Spiced Marmalade re-inker.
I tore random holes in the paper and distressed these too and backed with a cute paper which looks like balls bouncing (Rolo is obsessed with balls do Ollie won't get much of a look in with any I don't think LOL).
Inspired by the paper I used a circle of chipboard, painted it a deep red and added the stripe to look like the balls on the paper. I also took a smaller circle, punched a hole and covered with silver inka gold. when dry and buffed I wrote his name and the date with a fine tip pen - because its a hard nib it looks like an etched tag :D (I planned it really LOL)
I used the cut off strip from the paper and an embellie from a co-ordinating strip and layered them up in the corner.
I then randomly stamped it with a Scrolls Work stamp #2547 mesh, and Olive archival ink.
It turned out quite a cheap and cheerful layout not using any proper embellies but I love its grungey simplicity:D
