Awesome Dude!

Happy Monday everyone....I can say that as I have today off. Leaving shortly to go create some pottery goods with my Mom and Daughter for my Daughter's birthday.
We had a wonderful weekend with our Grandson's with a sleepover....I took some photos at their 3-Pitch game on Saturday. After taking them home yesterday, I had some creative time and created a layout of each of them from the ball game.

Here is one of the layouts....

Aiden hit his first double.....all the way out to the grass. How exciting...It just had to be scrapped!

Here are some closeups. I used some found items of different sizes, dipped them in craft paint and created the circles in the background. I also added some paint splatters.

I used a watercolour effect on the Heidi Swapp Tags - Star. I rubbed three colours of Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn & Salty Ocean) on a piece of waxed paper and a couple of sprintz of water and them dipped the watercolour tags in to absorb the colour. The colours were a little bright so I toned it down by dabbing Vintage photo all over the star. I layered a piece of coordinating paper behind so the word "AWESOME" showed up better.

Here is the sketch from Sketches In Thyme - Sketch 151 for inspiration.

I was also inspired by Heather's Challenge for SNS 3rd Birthday Bash to use product from 3 different companies .

Product list - Recollections cardstock, MME paper, die cuts and buttons and the items listed above.
