Paw Prints on my Heart – Belinda Spencer

Hey Dusty Attic peeps!!
Belinda here today to share my take on the awesome October Mood Board. The colours are so stunning and just happen to match a photo of my German shepherd, Ziva.
‘Paw Prints on my Heart’
I started with a beautiful Stamperia patterned paper background. The paper was so lovely that it really didn’t need anything added to it but I couldn’t resist just a few swipes of the Dusty in Colour Sunburnt Orange paint that I had slightly diluted with water. The colours really just worked magically with my photo of my dog who just happened to be staring intently at a koala that had come to visit on the other side of the fence. Koalas really love the gum tree that is inside my dog compound even though I have two big dogs under that tree! I could hear a horrible noise on this day so I ran out with my camera (of course!) and found a koala screaming at my dogs. I had never heard a koala make such a noise before. It really wanted to get to that tree even though there are hundreds of trees it could choose on our property. Silly koala.

I used lots of layers of patterned papers, a tag or two and a strip of hessian as well as a film strip that I cut in half to lengthen under my photo. I also slipped in some messy thread in the one colour that was missing from my photo. I added some older Dusty Attic flowers that I have had in my stash for aaaages.

I painted my title and the paw prints using Gingernut paint and added a little bit of the Sunburnt Orange on the title.

I painted the cute heart that comes with the title in Forest Green.
