One of many fun things we did on our recent trip to Southern California was to visit the Natural History Museum. My oldest daughter in really into dinosaurs and we'd heard about the awesome exhibit at the Los Angelos NHM so we had a visit and it did not disappoint! We took so many photos but I don't know that they did any justice to that collection...
I did use some of those pics, however, on a layout I made for two challenges. CSI Case #31 really pulled me in with those bright tropical colors. Yes dinos can seem so ominous and serious but how exciting and fun they are to learn about! I was inspired by Helene's wonderful tutorial over at ARTastic to use stencils to create backgrounds! Here's my page:
|For my Evidence: liquid medium, repetition, circles, solid background, parallel lines.|
For my Testimony: I journaled about our NHM visit during our recent vacay
I also used a circle stencil I had cut out with my Silhouette.
|The alphas are an old pack of Heidi Swapp mistable letters with|
a resist grid pattern. Oh how I wish I had MANY packs of these! I layed out
my title on a craft sheet then sprayed my colors and flicked
on the black paint.
|Very fun arrow stamps by Studio g!|
|More crackly dinos!|
So if anyone is into dinosaurs and you're in the area, check the exhibit out! It certainly was fun "hunting" for dinos! That's it for today! Thanks for your visit and comments, always appreciated!
