Brothers/ July Scap Muse Design Kit

This layout was created using the July Scrap Muse July kit. I altered some of the solid papers with paint. I placed the punchinella on top of the paper and brushed paint over the top of the punchinella to create the stippled effect. I used 2 different colors, you could actually used several colors if you wanted to. I then cut the bottom brown paper just a little larger and put the green paper on top of it. I then stitched around the edges in a very random manner. The blue is a piece of old blue jean ( I am sure every one a pair of worn out pants) I stitched it down and put the picture over it. Punchinella in the corner, and rub on is from the add on kit, helped to create a very personal looking paper. The journal card is actually a piece of left over paper from the kit cut in to a circle ( it has the notebook paper lines on it). TFL

The July Scrap Muse monthly kit has a beautiful selection of papers to work with. The combination allows you to use the papers for a girl or a boy. I especially like the puncinella ( Sequin waste). I put paint on bubble wrap and then stamped it on the bottom half of this page to add visual interest. You can experiment with different items that you have around the house if you do not have bubble wrap. I think the yellow and blue floral Sassafrass Lass paper is wonderful, such a bright and cheerful combination. The journal card is one of the add on kit for this month at Scrap Muse. The tag is one in the collection from Jenni Bowland. TFL This is Casey trying to explain to Walker how to dance. As you can tell from the photos, he is not always attentive.

This is the layout that I created for, with step by step instructions for creating this page. is an on line monthly scrapbooking newsletter with projects and instructions.
This is the layout before I added the journaling. The paper is Prima thanks to my friend Nan who shared her stash. She was able to get a paper pack at Michaels's with 3-4 sheets of each paper design. I have to say the entire line was just beautiful.
