maybe you have sometimes the same problem, there is nice photo in stash and no good idea how to use it in layout. So that is story behindy my photo for todays layout – there is my son Toby and our older sharpei Caspian, three years ago, Caspi is so friendly lovely dog and he loves to kiss everybody and once I made this photo, Toby was back from small trip and Caspi was so happy that he is at home that he wanted to kiss him immediately. I think this is pure dogs love at my photo, I love it. So awesome friendship can be between dog and small boy.
It is easy mixed media background – I worked at 7 dots studio paper from very old collection, I made some background stamping, than I applied Paper texture paste over stencil with paws. I applied Distress oxide Black soot also through the same stencil. Than I just cut different papers as cluster behind photo. I glued it and I glued chipboards and made some splatters. For layout you do not need any expensive embellishments just good idea, nice chipboards and that is all. I hope you will like it.
Have a nice day
