 Neet's Week - 'Grins & Giggles'

Back with another layout from my stash. I really do love this title! It's so fun & quirky - just like the photos I've captured of Riley. I've used copic markers, watercolours (I love my watercolours!) & a white gel pen to colour my title.

 So that's my week over thanks for popping in. Come back next week, as the June Challenge is revealed!!!

Neet's Week - '1st Tooth'

Hi all, back again!! This one is a favourite of mine. I love those chubby little cheeks - 
all red & rosy (although teething sucks!!).
I've used the WOW chipboard title '1st Tooth'. I've left the word 'tooth' al'natural & used watercolours to paint the tooth. I also put a piece of black cardstock at the black to emphaisise the 1st bit. I then used a fine black pen to go around the word tooth, to add some detail.

  Neet's Week - 'My Favourite Noise'

My favourite noise in the whole wide world, is listening to my 2 boys giggling  playing!
After a crappy day, this is the thing that makes me all warm & fuzzy inside.

WOW products I've used for this one are 
- Electronic Games Pack WOW893
- 2013 Pack WOW1741
- Classic Alphabet Uppercase WOW 1384E

I've used watercolour paints & copic markers to colour in my chipboard. Watercolours are good for using on the chipboard that has detail on them, like the ipod did. As it's not as thick as acrylic paints & you can still make out whats under it. I then used a fine black pen to go over top of the detail to make it stand out.

Make sure to stop back here throughout the week, to see the rest

Neet's Week - 'Learn To Swim'

So I'm back again to share some of my WOW projects with you all!
This was our first swmming lesson. Riley is only 6mths here & it's funny how quickly their little faces change! I love his chubby little cheeks LOL!

Products I used were: 6x6 Chevron Narrow Altamatz ALTA023
6x6 Random Circles Altamatz ALTA051
'Learn To Swim' title RWL100130

'Learn To Swim'

I love the chevron Altamatz (it's my favourite - can you tell LOL)! As with previous layouts, I have used watercolours with it & then traced around with black pen. With the circles Altamatz I have used acrylic paint & then scribbled around the dots with a black pen also. With the title 'Learn To Swim', I fussy painted the little fishy with acrylic paint, then went back over with black pen to emphaize the detail. With the lettering, I coloured that in with a black permanent marker & went over it with Glossy Accents.
Other bits I have also used are shipping tags, pages tabs, sewing machine, paper scraps, bakers twine, EK Success Notepad edge punch & a black pen for doodling.

Close up...

 Make sure to stop back here throughout the week, to see the rest.
