Shimelle's April 4x6 Photo Love & A Layout without the use of a Sketch

Hi peeps, had hoped to post earlier this week but some how I managed to break my keyboard. Luckily hubby has managed fix it.
First up is a Layout I made with out using a sketch and came from my mind, which let me tell you is rare these days lol. For this Layout I used Kaisercraft's Jungle Bug Collection :)
I used the border from the paper called Grubby Gala and cut out a grasshopper from the paper called Beetle Bug which I stuck down with 3D Foam Pads.
I used Some Black Letter Stickers for the title Meet Joe The Grasshopper. My eldest was ecstatic when he found this Grasshopper whilst on a walk with my Mum and his Brothers, It really got him out of his bad mood. When he found it he walked quickly to us and said "Meet Joe"
I was really Brave and had a play with my Alcohol Ink Sprays - Sky Blue and Jade which I had sprayed all over the background Card Stock which I was impressed with, but spoilt it being a little bit more brave. I Cut some letter waste of each letter for Grasshopper and sprayed over hoping to get the title Grasshopper but it went really wrong :( So I ended up covering the area up with strips of Grubby Gala and the Blue Side of Beetle Bug and a little strip with some of the bugs from the paper called Leafy Green.
I also used my Black Sukura Pen to do some False Stitching.
Next up is my take on Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love
I found some Zoo type card with different animal fur patterns on and inside it had animal stencils too, I had originally bought the pack for the boys.
I layed the relevant animal stencils on top of one another and drew round then on to Black Cardstock and then cut them out and drew inside the outlines using a White Sukura Pens.
Inside I wrote the Journalling on to White Cardstock and cut them in to little strips. I used my Black Sukura Pen for the writing. For the Title I found a font I liked and printed it out then drew round each letter on to Red Card Stock and used my Black Sukura Pen again to do each letter outline.

Thanks for popping by :)

Love the vibrant colours in your LOs, and the grasshopper is sooo cute. Great use of no sketch and sketch :)
