Today I am sharing a layout I am submitting to the More Than Words July Challenge. I had this fun picture of Maksims and the Challenge was to use the word “Smile”, and interpret the sketch as you may. IMG_9967

I love Finnabair’s Cold Country collection, it has such detail to the paper, I just added more with crackle paste and stencils.


The paper had a slight tone of purple so I added a smidge on the background.


I added some silver embossing powder to a mould and head embossed it to get a shine.


 I just have to look at that boy and he makes me smile.

Loads of crackle and lots of splashes.


Thank you for stoping by today. Enjoy the day and are creative!
