Just Being Justin

My nephew is a funny kid. He makes me laugh the most when he's just being himself and not trying too hard to be funny. I love it when he's just being Justin!

This layout was done using K & Company Wild Saffron paper. The hearts are hand cut out of chipboard and covered with a piece of yellow colored paper. The flowers are punched out of retro punches size medium and Whale of a punch. The black letter stickers are from Fiskers.

The brads used as flower centers are handmade from fabric brads that I hand dipped and swirled with paint.

The chipboard letters that spell out Justin are actually bright pink letters from fresh paint. I painted them black, let them dry..applied crackle medium and let that dry, then painted them light tan. The crackle effect happens immediately. Altering letters allows you to use them even if they don't match your color scheme. By changing the colors using inks, paints, paper covering, stamps or whatever, you can get a lot more mileage out of some of your letters! Give it a try today!

Thanks for the visit and stop back real soon!
