My Burmese boy Ollie

how I solved case file 94
beautiful rich and earthy tones . 
 visit CSI to find out more 


 I could not find room for my journaling so I have written on the tag , and tucked it under the photo.
 I decided to make my title a feature of my page 
I began by inking my chipboard alphas in Tim Holtz distress ink ( rusty hinge)
then dabbed some black across the top of the word 'Moment' .
next step is to stitch the entire word onto black card , 
add crackle paint, dry,  and brush more ink where desired .

a cluster of various elements . paper, chipboard and photo stays.

Stack something, wood element (heart) black background. letters as a design element. (my title) 
I wrote my journaling from my cats point of view. 
it is written on the tag and hidden under the photo.

Hello, my name is Ollie and I am a Burmese boy .. born in 1994
That makes me 18 !! ( 126 in cat years ) I will be 19 on the 7th November . 
I love my mum and we have lots of cuddles and fun moments together.
I can often be found on “mum’s” desk while she is creating.
I love the garden and find some special spots to
relax and be with nature.
I had the whole place to myself and now mum has
brought two more boys into the family, Raven and Hardy .
They are “ok”  but I am too old to be bothered with them.
As long as they leave me alone I am happy
But really if I am honest they do entertain me
and we are one big happy family .
I love being part of the Jacob Family xo
A note from me ---- my Cats leave foot prints on my heart .
love you Ollie x

thanks for looking at my work 
it means the world to me 
until next time

  13. A beautiful layout for a beautiful boy. I love the darker more dramatic colours and you use them as easily and fluidly as you do the paler gentler colours. I think that Ollie has the same wisdom and philosophy as his mum too. A wise cat. Another truly beautiful layout...
