All Cracked Up!

Graphic 45 Mother Goose
 This paper collection has been on my desk for awhile now. I am so drawn to all the different colors and patterns that Graphic 45 is known for. They fascinate and imtimated me! There is definitely an art to working with them. So today, I decided to get my big girl pants on and just go for it!

 One of the first things I did was to get out the Crackle Accents and put it all over his egg face! I repeated the same thing on a few of the Humpty Dumpty's in the background paper.

That expression tells all!

I fussy cut a second image of Humptys' clothing, hands, and shoes. I wanted some dimension added to him so I curved his body with a ball stylus and popped it up with foam tape and Collall. 

 A 2 inch strip was cut from the 8 X 8 pad. I added the scalloped edge and then ran it along the bottom to make a pocket. Inside the pocket there is a book marker, Mother Goose card, and a blank sheet for a message.

Finished size is A2
Thanks so much for looking!
