I love you more than teddy bears

Eek!  First layout with a new kit!  This is like for ever's Live Out Loud featuring Paige Evans/Pink Paislee combo.  I've teamed it up with a Just Nicks cut file as part of an Instagram challenge set by the lovely Kristine Davidson.

I cut the file 16 times from 9 different papers and then pieced them together.  I have leftovers, they will make it to a future layout I'm sure.  I used the squares that the circles were cut from (are you following?!) to layer up behind my photo.  Once I had these on the page it became obvious to me that some black was needed...

I ignored this and sorted out my title.  The photo is me and my baby (who is no longer a baby, but still incredibly cute) cousin.  In the background is a teddy bear peeping out from behind a pillow.  It seemed 'I love you more than teddy bears' was the only option for a title!

I then pulled out my black India ink and dropped some splats from a great height.  I wish this was more predictable.  One of my splats looks like a flying fish, whilst another couple landed on my circles.  I wasn't entirely adverse to them being on the circles but the ink reacted differently to the patterned paper... I think I've made peace with it now.  The other option would have been to mark where everything was to be placed, remove it all and then do the splats on a blank sheet - seems a little to lengthy a process for my brain!!

I added a few enamel dots to finish up.

And I do indeed...

love this!

Thanks for stopping by today folks!
