Cat-titude – Belinda Spencer

Hey Dusty Fanattics!!

Belinda here today to share a layout featuring some of the brand new chippie designs that I am loving at the moment.


For this layout I chose to scrap a favourite photo of my Burmese cat, Noodle. The photo really suited a circular style so I die cut it to fit inside the fabulous String Frame. I started with a beautiful background paper by Stamperia and added a swirl of diluted black gesso. I also splashed the gesso across the page. Next I added some stamping using Jet Black Archival Ink.

I wanted to keep the colour palette simple so stuck to a combination of black and gold. I painted the Diamonds, title, string frame and Mini Brackets using a gold acrylic paint. I also diluted some of the gold paint and flicked across my background.

I glued the diamonds onto some of the Stamperia paper so that the little faces would peek through and then cut around the edges. I painted the Paw Prints with the black gesso and glued just the large one onto some patterned paper before cutting that out too.

I also painted the flourishes with the black gesso as well as the cute cat. Once the paint was dry I added eyes to the cat using first a gold pen and then a black pen for the pupils.

I painted the title with the same gold paint. Finally I assembled everything on the page adding in some messy black thread and a scattering of gold sequins.
