June - A Year in Time

Living on acreage we have a number of animals which we all dearly love so imagine my surprise one chilly June morning when I went outside to see to the dogs and found this tiny little fur ball curled up with my son's pup. She is the most adorable little kitten, grey in colour and so soft and fluffy with loads of character. She had a collar on and apart from looking cold, hungry and a few fleas she was in good health. Thinking she must belong to someone, how could anyone dump a helpless little kitten so the kids did the door knock around the neighbourhood and although everyone said she was cute and would take her no one actually owned her. We put up notices, took her to the vet to check for microchipping and placed a photo on 'Lost and Found - Pets of Perth' Facebook page still nothing so the kids jokingly tell me she has adopted us!! and she has lol she has settled in so well, playing with (almost terrorising!) the other animals who quite happily like to sleep and laze about! Don't know that they are too happy having such an energetic ball of fluff around but she is here to stay :) So our fur family has grown by one and the kids named her Shadow :)

Step 1:
Take G45 Foundation June Page and rough, buff, scrape, sand and distress as little or as much as you want! Not just the edges, try lightly sanding all over. Love this part of being creative :)

Step 2:
Scrap, brush, splash and splatter contrasting paint all over, remembering there are no mistakes! It all adds texture and character to your work! I used White & Salmon Dabber from Adirondak and Ranger No #15 Weather Vane.

Step 3:
Using MS Punch Gothic Arches punch a strip of Grey Bazill and layer under the distress edges so just a small amount shows through.

Step 4:
Lay two doilies and overlap with Postcard, small picture embellishment and tag cut from the June cut-aparts once edges are inked, some hessian, gauze and a little piece tulle before laying a 5x3 photo on top.

Step 5:
Finish off with a small cluster of flowers on lower right corner. I made the paper rose using TH die cut from an old book pages, the little buds were made from punch art vinca's, all flowers were inked with TH dried Marigold distress ink and ligthly spritzing with TA Chalkboard glimmermist Apricot Nectar. Place some Prima Swirls, then add some twine shaped into a circle to bring out the focal point of the photo.

Step 6:
lastly I added a pennant banner which has been machine stitched and held together with bakers twine. In the top left I placed a Vintage Chipboard button and used waxyflax which has been curled.
