Laughter makes the world a happier place - Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the blog today.  This blog post features my grandson James, as well as beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard designs.  The pattern paper I am using is Simple Vintage Weathered Garden designed by Katie Pertiet for Simple Stories.  This collection is simply stunning.

My first layout for December 2020 was of this little boy's newborn feet.  And here he is, all grown up and super cute.  I love this photo from their family photoshoot.  He looks so happy.  Although I enjoy watching Jamesie grow up, there are moments when I wish the time would slow down a bit, and I'm sure his mommy would agree.

James, your laughter is priceless.  I love the way you laugh.  Your laughter is infectious and pure joy.  It is impossible not to smile when you laugh.  There is a sense of wonder in your laughter.  You should never lose that.  You are such a joyous little boy.  What more could I want out of life than to laugh with you every day.

Here is my layout.

All the chippies were first covered with white gesso, except for the butterflies.  They were colored with Art Alchemy Metallic Wax in Mint Sparkle and Patina Blue.
I dry brushed the beautiful Botanical Ring with Americana acrylic paint in Bahama Blue and Mint Julep Green.

For the Ombre effect on the title, I used Americana acrylic paint in Spa Blue, Bahama Blue, and White.

Foliage F10 was heat embossed with white embossing powder. Foliage F4 was painted with Americana acrylic paint in Bahama Blue and Mint Julep Green and dry brushed with white acrylic paint.
Foliage F24 was painted with Green Mist and dry brushed with white acrylic paint.

I also used my favorite Wordpl@y elements.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I have used.

Thank you for visiting the blog today.
