Brotherly Love

Today on Frosted Designs, the challenge is to use paint with your project.  I typically use a stamp pad to ink edges, but I do have more paint colors than stamp pad colors!  I dug out some red, green and black paint for this layout.

I started with my trusty $1 thesaurus from Wal-Mart and punched out three different size circles.  I painted them red.  Next I painted the edges black.  I crumpled them a bit and glued them together.

Here is a close up.  I poked a hole in the center to use a brad, but later changed my mind and stuck a pearl sticker on instead.

I do not have a leaf punch, so I used a heart shaped punch and cut it in half.  I ran them through the cuttlebug for some texture.  I painted them green and the edges black.

On my Gypsy, I welded the word "love" from Home Decor and hearts from George to make a border.

I used San Serif for "brotherly".

I painted the edges of the paper with red paint.

I used an extra circle for my journaling and painted the edges.
This photo was taken last Easter....I asked my boys to pose for a picture and this is what I got!!
