I was also going through some old idea books I have and when I came across a page in an Ali Edwards idea book called "Life Artist", my idea REALLY came together. I had just bought a few new stamps and wanted to use them, and Ali's inspiration allowed me to do just that. I actually used this book for a Scrapbook club I used to lead...I love it when an idea book from 2007 can still inspire in this ever changing world of ART! Thanks for the inspiration, Ali!!!
Alex is SOOO full of life and just loves to play "catch me if you can". Whenever I take my camera out, though, he is so patient and will wait for me to take as many pictures as I want before scurrying off. Since this week's theme over at the Frosted Designs Blog, I wanted to use the word "WILD" in my project.
Since Alex really is our "Little Wild Man", the title fit right in with the project.
Here are a few close-ups:
Then I used several of my new stamps to layer paint and ink to obtain the look above. I also used some embossing powder on the edges and layered rub-ons from my stash. I also made use of some old scrabble pieces that I embellished with some yellow paint.
Now hop on over to the Frosted Designs Blog and see all the inspiration to help you create your "WILD" themed project.
