My goofs...

Crate Paper rocks my world.  I mean, seriously... I just love it.  Every stinking little bit of it.  This is, to date, the one and only company for which I have broken my "no duplicates" rule of shopping.  I own at least 3 pieces of everything from Portrait and Random, and well, let's just say every one of their collections is well represented in my stash.  So it is appropriate to make this week "Crate Paper Week" on my blog, and share with you my latest projects using these collections.

Today, I bring you some Portrait, and a goofy picture of my kids, who had, when this shot was taken, decided they were tired of having their photos taken.  I have been admiring some layouts recently that used this bold stripe as a background, and so I decided it was high time I gave it a shot myself.  Yeah, I kind of dig it.  Watch for anther one coming soon.

I started with some dry-drushing of white acrylic paint, and went from there.  Here are the results:




Thanks for coming by!
