Boys are full of fun

Hello there!

I am still loving the Loyal collection by Authentique the colors just seem to go with almost everything  my boy does!  So I knew it would be perfect when I decided to play along with Authentique's April sketch challenge.....

And while I was at it, I decided to play along with a challenge at The Paper Variety.  The challenges requires us to scraplift a project from their site or use one of their tutorials in creating our project.  I knew the later was for me when I came across a tutorial that suggested using a Cricut to create a mask / stencil for misting.  You can find it here.

This is the mask that I made.....

Please ignore the butterfly shapes, you can see this paper also got used for something else, but the rows of Moroccan-ish shapes are what I actually used for my mask.

And this is my finished product.....

  I moved the mask along my paper in a diagonal fashion to mimic the sketch.

Then I cut out the same shape in several patterns from the Loyal collection  and adhered them sporadically over some of the sprayed shapes, using pop dots fro dimensions.

I made some little cork tickets to add to my embellishment cluster.

Instead of hanging butterflies I used a large scale flourish to sort of depict the leaves blowing around the yard.
And this tag served as a perfect title!

Thanks fro stopping by!
