this is our Zekey dog, we got him from the pound and he instantly became part of the family. He is quite the character with very much his own personality, but man is he clumsy so my husband starting calling him knuckle.
I started with a pattern paper from prima, it was cream background with dark words. First i colored the background with Huey mists and moved the color around on the page with baby wipes. Next i used modeling paste and fern stencil to create the background. Once modeling paste was dry i i painted with my fingers and distress paint- various greens, then to make them pop outlined with black distress paint.
close up of painted ferns, using your fingers as a brush makes blending easy. I used a brush and black distress paint around the raised fern edges.
Underneath the photo i added a kraft pocket to insert a tag for journaling. Other embellishments include washi tape, brads, rub ons, and speaking bubble. I used a white gel pen to write on the black speaker bubble.
