Hey Hey!!  Katrina from Paper, Scissors, Glue and Hybrid Too back with a layout for our Whimsy Stamps swap.  Now, I didn’t use any stamps, but I did use their fun Nested Hexagon dies set for my project today.  I paired those dies with a lot of fun Rina K Designs products.

A little backstory, since the journaling is hard to read.  Jetson has been diagnosed with Idiopathic Vestibular Disease. It’s basically like vertigo in humans and has to do with his inner ear. I took these pictures while he was recovering from an episode of it and wanted to document it.  Some dogs only have one episode and never have it again, but sadly he has had them for the past year since the first one.  We have figured out they are brought on by barometric pressures changes, like when a storm is coming in.  There isn’t a lot you can do, except supportive care and making sure they do drink and eat.

LAYOUT DETAILS

I am going to tell you upfront, I was all over the place while making this layout! Lucky for you, now that it’s done, I can break it down in easy steps for you to recreate it if you want!

First, you want to start by making your background. I chose to use some white cardstock, black Sharpie and a pink and yellow mist. I drew lines, actually more like z’s around the edges of my cardstock, adding in extra doodling in opposite corners. Once that was done, I misted, spraying each mist a couple of different times and rotating them. By doing this, when the mists mixed, they created the light orange color.

I adhered a sheet of the Eileen Hull Easy Adhesive to a 6×12 piece of white cardstock.  Once the adhesive was attached, I trimmed in half and then adhere the flock to the 6×6 pieces, by running thru my die cutting machine.

The next step was figuring out what I wanted to do with the Electro Pop Flock that I had chosen to use. I decided to leave some of it plain, and then add some of the Glitz Glitter Gel onto it, using some stencils. Both the Poppin’ Pink and Hello Yellow didn’t match my paper collection, so I altered them using the mists,  I used the Lemon on the Hello Yellow and the White on the Poppin’ Pink Flock.  Big difference on the yellow flock, a slight difference in the pink.

STENCILING THE FLOCK

Next, I cut each square in half, leaving half plain and then stenciling with the Glitter Gel over the other half.  I used various stencils because I wanted a variety of designs.  If you really want your stenciled area to “pop” you will want to apply your Glitter Gel in a thick layer and then carefully pull your stencil up.  You do not want to see any of the flock thru the gel.

I accidentally applied the gel too thin on my pink flock and didn’t realize it until after it dried and I could “see” thru it.  You can see below, not good!

After realizing this, I decided to add more white mist on top of the entire stenciled piece of the flock and then I liked it!

COMPLETING THE LAYOUT

While deciding on my layout design, I thought it would be fun to cut my pictures in hexagons also, but I didn’t want the stitched look around the edges. I solved this by tracing around the outside of the die with a ball point pin and then just trimming with scissors.

Next, I die cut a white hexagon one size bigger than my pictures and mounters the picture onto the bigger shape with a die-cut piece of Deco Foil Foam Adhesive.  I cut the foam with the next smaller die compared to the die I used for my picture.

Now, it’s time for the fun to begin and start cutting pattern paper and flock into hexagons to place onto my layout.  I used the combo of foam adhesive and the Memory Runner XL to attach my hexagons together and to the background paper.

All that was left to do was add some embellishments to the different areas, a little journaling, and a title! I love it when I have no idea where a layout is going, but then I end up loving the result!

    What a cute layout for your adorable pooch!
    So, I have extreme vertigo, also affected by among many things, barometric pressure. I have no idea if dogs can take magnesium or the herb butterbur, but a specialist started me on them and I have improved greatly. Check with your vet; maybe it would help.
