Snips and Snails and
Puppy Dog Tails Curiosity. That’s what Little Boys are Made Of!
It’s another fabulous challenge from Child’s Play today! Curious George is our inspiration pint today. I saw these photos of my nephew from this spring and knew curiosity was totally the perfect theme for them! So I combined that with the age-old nursery rhyme about little boys, and boom… the page was born.
I did a lot of play with this background. I used watercolour paper, then gel medium through one of my favourite stencils. Let it dry. Ground up some blue geloto and dissolved it into a tiny bit of water (grinding it up helps it dissolve smoothly) and just splashed it onto my page. Let it run wherever it wanted. After that dried, I took some spray inks and splattered with several colours. And finally, I took a chevron stencil and embossing paste (Studio 490) and slapped (pretty literally. I was going for messy, not tidy) it down in the middle. The lightbulb is a TH stamp that I then fussy cut and coloured with spray ink. Edged the page with a BoBunny chicken wire stamp…. and done! Another fast LO, except for waiting for the mediums to dry. (I usually speed that up with the warm setting on my oven. I love that thing.)
Have fun! And don’t forget to link your LO to our blog page, and let us know what inspired you!
