Scrapbook Challenge

My Little Monster

Cute Critters, Houndstooth, And Arrows

Does anyone else get super exited when new true crime shows are added to Netflix or Hulu? Forensic Files is sort of my favorite thing right now!

But back to scrapbooking. This page once again features one of my goofy cats.In the photos, she's actually in my bookcase among many of my paper pads I use for scrapbooking.

I started with pale yellow houndstooth paper from Paper Studio's Affinity Stack. I used acrylic paint in primary colors and dry brushed a pattern around where my photos would be.

The February challenge at Lasting Memories prompted using hearts or arrows on a layout. I used both. I used blue and red arrow print paper from Craft Smith's Summer Dream stack. I seriously love this collection of papers and its bohemian summer vibe. I also used arrows from the Our Adventure sticker sheet by Me & My Big Ideas.

Both the layout and the color palette are taken from Color, Story, Inspiration's February challenge. The fun, primary colors really appealed to me and the simple layout allowed for flexible interpretation. Above all, its prompt to use monsters finally allowed me to use some stickers by Paper Studio that I couldn't resist buying, but had never had an occasion to use.
