Stinky Fish!

I have a daughter who is always taking silly pictures and I have to admit.... they are so much more fun to use in my scrapbooking layouts! Normally, when I use the One Fine Day paper line, I am making sweet, pretty pages but today, I wanted to try to grunge them up a bit! Here is what I created....

After adding a few paint splatters, some messy stitching and a lot of PowderPuff Chalking Ink, I was able to create the look I was going for!

The chipboard flower and circle are from the Quick Quotes Bag O'Chips Stackable Flowers. I used the PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Baja Blue to color the petals of the flower and Mango Mai Tai to ink the chipboard circle and patterned paper.

I took the lid off the water bottle I had sitting at my desk and added PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Mocha Mama to create the circles on my layout.

And of course, I used the PowderPuff Chalking Inks to add some color to the ordinary, white office tags.

I used Mango Mai Tai to ink the edges of the tag and added a little Biscotti PowderPuff Chalking Ink to the center. I wanted to "soften" the look of the ink so I used a little trick I know.

I misted the tag with water and used my finger to blend the water around the tag.

After the tag dried, the ink appeared to have a softer, more blended look.

I hope you can use my tricks in one of your crafty projects! Have a wondrful weekend!
