Catcha Catcha









This is a layout about Chloe catching me while I try to take a shot at her playing. It's definitely a very playful moment. This also inspired me to name the layout "Catcha Catcha".
I've been very playful while creating this layout. Therefore, I've tried some fun and interesting techniques for this layout.
These are the techniques involved:
Stamp to Create Title ~ this is the technique that I've used to create part of my title.
Bubble Wrapper Printing ~ I've used this technique to create part of my layering in this layout.
Emboss on Flowers ~ I've embossed on the huge flower in my layout.
Using Transparency in Flowers ~ I've used some transparencies to alter and create some flowers here.
I've also done some masking using a paper doiley on the card stock. I've hand drawn the vines on a thin chipboard and later cover it with pattern paper and journaled on it. I've also painted the tag using some acrylic paint to distress it before embellishing it with a metal tag and a heart. The butterflies are stamped and later heat embossed. This is such a fun layout to do and hope you all like the techniques I've shared here.
