Look Mom....No Teeth

This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is Creativity with Texture.  In other words - Get Messy!!!

We were challenged to use everyday things to help add texture to our projects.

I cut this background image from the Silhouette online store out of scrap paper and used it as a mask for my background.  I used Dylusions ink Cherry Pie.  This was my first time using Dylusions ink and I was very impressed!!!  The color is very vibrant!!!

Here is what my paper looked after I took the template off.  I trimmed the edges a bit and mounted it to a piece of 12x12 black cardstock.

Here you can see the background.

I used the Dylusions ink on some circles I punched from an old paperback book.  I folded them in half and used thesm as banner flags.

I also spritzed a piece of cardstock with a grid design on it.  This allowed more of the white to show through.  I inked the edges with black ink.

I added some color with a black cardstock thick stripe and a blue circle.  This grounded my photo and added some depth.

I used the most perfect chipboard piece to point out Tanner's smile!!

I used a font from my computer to cut out my title - Look mom no teeth!

This layout was a little challenging for me as I typically pull colors from my photo.  I really did not have any colors to pull here so I went with what I had the most of!  The more I look at this layout, the more I like it!!

Be sure to head over to Frosted Designs to link up your Creativity with Texture project!!

Great page, Lori! Your son is a cutie; reminds me of when my son was small and lost his tooth -- not at all embarrassed like my "ole-fogy" self would be now... lol!!! Not only do I need every tooth I have left, I'm ugly enough I just don't need to lose more... lol!!!
