a little DIRT never hurt – Lynette Jacobs

Lynette here, welcome to the blog today.  I have the pleasure of sharing some inspiration for August.  I used some photos of my youngest grandson playing in the dirt in the garden.  I love all the expressions in his little face…he has so much personality.  I used patterned papers from the Heidi Swapp Carefree collection.

Chipboard used on this page:

A little Dirt never hurt

Chain rectangles

Gnomes small

Garden Tools #2

Gnome sentiments
Some close up details:

I love the earthy tones of the Heidi Swapp Carefree collection.  They compliment these photos perfectly.  I heat embossed the main title with copper embossing powder.

These little gnomes are just darling…I painted them with acrylic paint…the gnome sentiments are just perfect too.  I used a Sizzix leaf die to add extra colour behind the gnome.

I heat embossed the chain rectangle in copper to showcase the photo where Eben pulls his face.  He has so many expressions.

I added another little gnome to the left side of the photos.  The label was added to give some separation from the background.

The trowel and bucket was also painted with acrylic paint.  I added the leaf dies and gnome sentiments to all three clusters for continuity.

There is really gnome one like him. ♥

I am really very happy with the way this page came together.
