Art Fun Layout

Hi!  I'm back with another layout to share with you, yay!!!  I have had this monkey paper in my stash for a long time knowing that someday I would find the perfect use for it... and today is that day!  I have joined the sketch challenge at Pretty Little Studios for the first time, and I'm so happy I did!

Here is the sketch:

And what I made with it:

Patterned Paper: Creative Imaginations Studio
Stamps: Verve (boarderline)
Ink: PTI and Memento
Letter Stickers: Fancy Pants Designs
Embellishments: Basic Grey
Twine: The Twinery
Glue Dots

Technique Tip: I wanted to get that painting feel on my paper to match the picture, but I wanted the colors to match my papers.  Since I didn't want to use actual paint I hauled out my inks, stamped the colors on a clear stamping block, dipped my paintbrush in water and then into the ink making it a runny water paint.  I then flicked the bristles (just like you did as a kit) with my fingers to give me control of where my splats would go! Make sure you wipe your paint brush clean when you switch colors!

* I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Crafting!
