TSG Sneak Peek - Puppy Love




I'm back with yet another fabulous There She Goes set to show you today :D This super cute little pup is from a set called Puppy Love by the amazingly talented illustrator, Torico (if you have never stopped by her blog before, then do yourself a huge favour and check it out now!)

Once again, if you have arrived here from sweet Jodi's blog then you are right where you should be...if not, please start at the beginning over at Danielle's blog :)



For this set, I wanted to do something a little bit different. Awhile ago, I had picked up a bunch of soft covered pre-made journals and I thought that one would be perfect for this adorable little pup. I started by water colouring the puppy, then popping him up and covering his nose and heart with crystal effects. I then went in and water coloured the background with baja re-inker and then when that was dry I followed through with the prismas and gamsol to create the grass.

The designer papers have been embossed with some cuttlebug folders and then sponged with both Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Cocoa inks. I then stitched all of the papers together and added some decorative cross stitching with some linen thread to accompany the thread, button and ribbon treatment on the lower half of the journal :D
