Let's Take A Walk

Good Monday Morning Everyone!
Let's take a walk.

Last Wednesday night was another fun Scrapbook Pajama Party hosted by the talented Tiare of She posted a sketch for us to follow and I created my layout based on her ideas and that sketch. 

Check out this LINK for more details on the sketch and on how to watch the recorded show.

Here are the steps to complete the layout.
Choose papers from the Patterned Brights collection,
two 4x6 dk. gray photo mats and a 12x12 blue cardstock from the Serenity kit.
Print out butterfly collage stamp from the Papillon digital kit.
Color with water brush and coordinating metallic Gelatos.
Detail of the painted butterfly.
Fussy cut your butterfly and "ink" the edges using a brush tip black marker.
I love these butterflies!  
Baby snapping turtle
The back story of my layout:
My niece, daughter and I took a walk last weekend around the cranberry bog and pond by my home. We were amazed to find this tiny snapping turtle on the dirt road path around the bog.  My niece is a turtle lover and was just captivated by this little one. We decided to make his journey to the pond a little shorter by giving him a lift. What an amazing experience.

Other supplies used in this layout:
Thickers from Club Scrap 2010 Jubilee kit
Recollections rhinestones
Black cat's eye chalk ink by Colorbox
Uniball Signo white journaling pen
