Purr-fect Stalker


Belinda here today to share two layouts I have created with the brand new, totally fabulous FUR-EVER FRIENDS collection.

The colours in this collection are so vibrant and bright and a perfect match for the brilliant new Flutter Colour paints! I have had my very first play with these paints and I am super impressed with the results.

Here's my first layout.

'Purr-fect Love' Layout

I started by applying some molding paste through the I {heart} You Mini Stencil. I repeated this until I had enough stencil work to be visible around my central photo area.

Next I chose paints to co-ordinate with the photo cards I was going to use and diluted each one with some water. I spritzed my layout with water around the stenciled area and then flicked the colour over this area using a soft, wet paintbrush.

Next, I cropped my photo cards and played around with the arrangement until I was happy. A quick staple or two held everything together so I could add it quickly to my background without anything shifting. I love using staples this way because I know (from experience) that if I take it apart to add tape to the back I will never get it back the same way. LOL

Next I layered on some messy strands of embroidery thread, my photo and all embellishments.

I created my title by fussy cutting the 'purr-fect' from a photo card. I also cut apart the wood veneer 'Hello Love' so that I could use the 'Love'. I haven't wasted the 'Hello' part though! Scroll down to see how I used that. :-)

Here's what I used:


- Arctic White
- Grape Soda
- Green limousine
- Tropicana Teal

And now for something a little more on the dark side.

'Hello Stalker' Layout

I love this photo of my Burmese cat, Noodle, giving me stink eye through the hole in her activity centre. She is the sweetest natured cat but always manages to look feral in photos.

Check out how beautifully bright the Flutter Colour paints are on the dark background!! And that is after I watered them down for a more watercolour effect. Pretty cool huh?

I created a wash of colour over my background and then splattered a lot of colour over it too using a soft wet paintbrush.

Then I added a little detail with the gorgeous NEW Shake Your Tail Feather Stencil and some molding paste.

Next I layered on my cropped photo cards, photo, embellishments and title. And there is the 'Hello' from the 'Hello Love' Wood Veneer that I cut in half. I couldn't resist using the cheeky quote cut from the photo cards too.

Here's what I used:


- Orange Goldfish
- Raspberry Punch
- Sunshine Yellow

I hope you love this collection as much as I do and feel inspired to scrap your own furry friends. I have lots more to come so keep an eye out for my next post later this month.
