deck the halls with inky paws blog hop!

what an exciting day!!
Newton's Nook is celebrating the holiday spirit with an amazing, star-studded, giveaway and all around FUN blog hop!! :)

so let's continue to Deck the Halls with Inky Paws!!



you should have arrived here from Larissa's blog, but if not, that's OK!
you can start the hop with the Newton's Nook blog, and the full list is below, too!

ok, so i decided to make a scrapbook layout of a picture from last Christmas! 



ha ha ha!
i really LOVE it!
my own little newton is totally up to some meschief - he LOVES hiding under a tree and running out to swipe at an unsuspecting leg! i think, he thinks, he's a lion! 



anyway, so i sued a few different sets for this layout! all of the images were colored with copics! all of the kitty images and the sentiment are from Newton's Curious Christmas! so FUN and versatile! i tried to make it look like the stamped cats were stalking and getting into trouble just like the one in the picture! 

on one side of the paper, i glued down a bunch of white strips of paper. then i covered it with gesso. then i watercolored and splattered a few different green inks on it! i also did the same to a plain white tag.



the red tag was actually white to start, bit i heat embossed two thirds of it in red! i also flecked some red enamel dots and natural colored snowflakes on too! i like the texture and dimension!
and then of course, i stitched the sentiment on, and added stitching to the sides of the layout, as well.
