The Color Room Palette #68

TCR palette #68 is so sweet! It's the kind of color combo I love; pinks and browns! I usually play with more boyish or masculine layouts so I was wondering how to play along with this and I found some old photos taken with my mum's princess aka the house pet aka Cuddles the jack-wawa. We call her the jack-wawa because she's a cross-breed between a Jack Russel and a Chihuahua. These pictures were taken back in 2007 when we first got her and she was such an adorable puppy you just want to hold her and shower her with kisses. Now she's so big and hyperactive she won't let you pat her for long before she runs off to chase something.

I'm using a craft background with papers from MME Stella Rose and PP Daily Junque plus a little bit of FP Happy Together (dark brown bits & butterflies) and BG Sweet Threads (pink fussy cut flower on the left). I added some pink acrylic paints to mess-up the layout (turns out too messy?). The brown centre bit is a craft corrugated sheet treated with some TH Distress Stain Dabber in Walnut and coated with some Sparkly Mod Podge. Crystals are from a knit shop in Subang Parade.

Here's palette #68 from TCR:


Here are some close ups:

Fabric flowers from Prima Whisper collection and random buttons. I layered them on some beige netting and a small piece of jute fiber cut out from a jute bag I bought from the dollar store (Daiso)
Title from AC Glitter Thickers, "hello" is a Micia rubber stamp, "sweet pea" is 7G Babycakes rub-ons.

I stamped some butterflies using MS clear stamps with acrylic paint but the effect wasn't quite what I expected so I used the punched out butterflies and netting to camouflage it. If you look at it alone, it's kind of messy-weird I think.
Well, that's my attempt at trying to play with some acrylic paints, uuurghhh I'm still not so good at it :(

Before I go, here's how Cuddles looks like now... past and present:

Cute cuddly puppy (left pic) turned into the crazy mutt (right pic) who chews on everything and chases anything. But we love her all the same.

Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely week ahead!

The mistake or not so satisfying result of stamped butterflies actually created a nice effect!
