2012 Scrapbook Trend #2: Spray Ink

Hello all and welcome to the 2nd installment of my 2012 Scrapbook Trends project. Today's trend is: Spray Ink. This is a trend that I am pretty familiar with and have utilized many times in the past (love this look!) HOWEVER, I did just recently acquire some opaque white ink from Studio Calico that I was very excited to try out (with kraft paper in particular). I saw this look in a magazine, and love it! I didn't think I would be able to get opaque white spray ink so I was pretty excited to find it! So here is my project:

You are all probably pretty used to seeing layouts of my dogs by now, lol! They are my 'fur' kids so the subject of most of my work. In this particular layout I wanted to highlight a silly little quirk of June's, which is that she LOVES to burrow under blankets, especially when they are in 'motion'. I was lucky to grab this shot of her when she was making herself comfortable under my quilt. Here are some close-ups of the journaling (where you can see the spray ink a little better) as well as the cute butterfly sticker in 'kraft color', also from Studio Calico:

Supply list:
Kraft paper: Bazill
Patterned paper & flowers: American Crafts
Butterfly stickers & spray ink: Studio Calico
