lion fish layout - sassy scrapper

I thought I would change it up a bit with a mixed media layout this week at sassy scrapper
A mixture of paint , mist and stamps with a stencil from ScrapFX using texture paste
And of cause some fabulous patterned papers from Dear Lizzy polka dot party
we took our daughter eve for her 9th birthday to a aquarium in the bay
i got this great shot of a lion fish in a tank by its self i think i had just as much fun as she did
its fun how calming to watch them swimming around..

I started off with the dots texture stamp from kaisercraft and stamped it random over the page then used a stencil from ScrapFX with some texture paste
Mixed green paint with water and used a paint brush to drip it down the page

Flicked mister Hueys inky black and water cooler and a few flicks of watered down green paint
Then I stamped the texture stains stamp from kaisercraft in a few spots on my page

Then I added patterned papers and embellished my page.

Added sequin and bling to add a bit of sparkle to the page
