Bad Ziva – Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!!

Belinda here today to share my latest project for August featuring some of the fabulous NEW chipboard designs.

I am absolutely loving the NEW pet friendly designs as I have a LOT of animals on my farm including my fur babies.

So today’s layout features my favourite dog out of my three fur babies even though she drives me insane with her barking!! She is very sweet and smart, lovely to walk and loves being in the car.

‘Bad Ziva’

“She believed she could woof so she did. (and she hasn’t stopped.” Yes!! But how cute is she as a puppy?! German shepherds are adorable when they haven’t grown into their big ears yet. 

I have used lots of the NEW chipboard on this layout. I mixed up some Capri and Oceania Dusty In Coloour paints along with a little white gesso to make the pretty soft aqua colour for the stencilling as well as the ‘woof’ and the Diamonds Broken Bits. How good are the Broken Bits?!!! I LOVE this new chipboard design and I can see that I will be using lots of these. 

I used heavy white gesso on the other words on my layout. I gave them about three coats for an extra bright and crisp white. I intentionally left the ‘bad’ raw so it wouldn’t stand out as much because she really isn’t a bad dog…just a little annoying. LOL She is my second German Shepherd and I will always have these awesome dogs in my life. 

In breaking news: I have used flowers on this layout!!! They are not a standard feature on my layouts but how can you go past these super pretty flowers. I have added two clusters of flowers in the soft Evening Blush colour as well as Cornsilk.

Oh and the cute little pawprints were also painted with three coats of heavy white gesso.
