Feeling Springy?

There's a new challenge up at Punky Scraps, create a project using Orange, Yellow & Green....but wait, there is a twist! You can only use ONE patterned paper!! So, I got the memo about the yellow and green, and only 1 PP, but apparently I missed the boat on the orange....Oops!! either's my layout:

There is also a funny little picture as inspiration:
Now you see where I got the idea for the goofy smiley faces on my layout, these are SO not me, but a little bit of goofy whimsy never hurt anyone, right???

Since this was a layout for Punky Scraps, I had to get messy, which is something I LOVE to do! Here are my messy techniques: 1-hand-cut the scallop border after stamping those goofy smiley faces. 2-added white paint around the green edges and under my photo mat. 3- added a torn piece of cardboard behind my title, dressed up with a bit of paint. 4-used puffy paint to outline the edge of the cut-out and to hand-draw my title. Puffy paint is such a fun medium to add to your projects, but quite often comes out in globs rather than pretty lines, so be sure to practice on scrap!

Be sure to hop on over to Punky Scraps and see what the rest of the DT has created. There are some fabulous layouts over there, and NONE of them forgot the orange! =)T
