"Messing with Monsters"

A quick share of a LO I have been playing around with since I got my hands on a new monster pack from Scrap FX. They were irresistible so I had to track back through the archives to find a suitably monstrous photo... (get the pun???) Any way here it is:

My little fellas' ..... those were the days doesn't seem like that long ago!!

For a background I used the ScrapFX splatts stencil with gesso then sprinkled some embossing powder on top as an experiment.... it worked a treat! I then sparyed Gesso spray over the top to get a subtle embossed look.

How could I resist this little fella'?
 Splashed a few mist colours around in blue & green and sprayed a charcoal colour through a Number stencil to add to a grungy feel!

The awesome alphabet is a newbie from Scrap FX as well.
I used ink pads to colour the title chippies & Monsters!

Here I will let you in on a secret..... I have found the BESTEST markers ever, they write on everything!!!!!
I used the white one here on the little monsters teeth and eyes.... look how bright they are.... HAPPY!!!!!!
They are called Molotows, they are not your average pen or marker and they are expensive BUT you can buy refills and you can use the refills very creatively as well!!!!!
Yes I love 'em and want more, I only have the black and white right now but I can see an addiction coming at me!!! Stay tuned....

The arrows are washi tape from Sawyers Place, so easy to do just place the tape on cardstock and cut away in any shape you like!!!
Well I think that is about all catch you later and thanks for dropping by!


  1. Monsters galore!!! Looks great - I would never have thought of embossing over the top....I've written down the's SOOOO hard getting a decent white marker! TFS...& I didn't know you could get gesso SPRAY, either...very informative post for me. Taa:):):)

  2. Love this layout, it's a great kids one and the techniques you've shared are amazing. The molotows are great, I have the large black one, purchased when I did the art Journaling class.

  3. Thanks for dropping by ladies and I am so happy that my ramblings were informative!!
