We all have pets. Whether it be an animal or not is something else. It could be an insect… like how every time Eleanor finds a stink bug she captures it, and names it Cliffy after our late Boston Terrior, and forces it to live in Minnie Mouse’s playhouse, a fish bowl, or an empty fruit snacks box. (Whatever the home of choice is at the moment, it never makes it through the night).
Or I guess I could turn the pointer to myself since I have a pet rock Kevin.
Here’s the pic of him I used for my last post. Apparently, it’s the only one I can find in my media library right now. And I’m too lazy to go upstairs and snap a new one.
So back to pets that are actually animals… like the ewesh… ya know, cats and dogs… They are quite special and make quite a dent in our emotional lives. So I was very excited when this month’s YouTube Layout Hop’s theme was pets.
If you haven’t heard about the Hop, it’s a monthly event that’s almost at it’s 3rd birthday. It was founded by Xochitl Zoe Aparicio aka Zoe CraftyX. It’s like a show and tell of scrapbooking, cards, mixed media, smashing… etc. Anyone is welcome to join in. Let me know if you’re interested, I can direct you to the facebook group page. And the best part is, there’s a sponsor every month so some lucky commenter wins a prize.
So I had to do a mixed media for a Studio Calico class a couple weeks ago, so I figured the textures would work well with a doggie photo. Although since Roo donned Norma Queen of Arendelle, pink sparkles and silver glitter probably would’ve also worked. (ok, so I just typed Arendelle into a facebook search to check the spelling… and I just found out that I can request friendship with Elsa and Anna. And probably the others I’m sure… wait.. they’re not real right?)
So this layout uses the following:
– Mr. Hueys Mists
– Some masking with stencils
– Modeling paste
– bit of layering
– nip of doodling
– tid of twine
It’s actually such a coincidence that the Hop’s theme was pets this month because it’s Norma’s BIRTHDAY TODAY!
So Happy 10th Birthday Norms! We love you and thank you for all your patience letting Eleanor use you as a headwear model… ( and all that other stuff too 🙂
And here’s my vid for the YTLH!
Have a great week everyone!
