WOW...one for the little....

...GIRL...
As you can see - I've been 'playing' (with texture) again...I was originally inspired by Scrap That Song's May theme of "mis-heard lyrics" - OM goodness...yep! the challenge is to scrap about a song that you thought you were singing the right words to, only to find out you were way off the mark LOL.
Well, that's a challenge alright...I honestly couldn’t think of anything, except a song that will, if truth be told, demonstrate my 'warped' sense of humour.
When I was young, after bathing, when mum was rubbing my hair dry - we used to sing "Baa Baa Black Sheep".  Just in case you need to be reminded of the words in the last line... "and one for the little boy  girl who lives down the drain oops I mean lane" ... Unsurprisingly that's also how I taught my sons the nursery rhyme too LMAO. 
Hence the title of my LO of yours truly in the bath age 8mo. 
I've based my LO design on the May sketch challenge over at Words Or Whatever (WOW)  and the only criteria was to use some WOW chipboard...
So I've used 2 3 pieces  of WOW :
 the leaves,
 the butterfly
 and the negative of the curly flourish.
The curly flourish chippie really is very versatile and I used it here on my "Sparkle" LO.
 I loved the negative so much I kept it specially for such an occasion. To get this effect I just used Impasto medium over the negative, waited till it dried then used my Versa Mark pen and heat embossed it all.:)
I've used 'orange' not only because its my favourite colour, but also to sub for the Scrapping Outback May Random Chipboard challenge - to scrap a (mostly) monocromatic LO.
I've kept to the A4 size because, naturally, this LO will be going into my "book of moi" (over on the Boxx)
Supplies used:  Cosmo Cricket (Coral Bloom “just keep swimming”) and Echo Park (Little Boy) pps; Words or Whatever {aka WOW} chipboard (part of C1098 New butterfly set , WOW1424 Fine Branch, negative of WOW478 Curly Flourish); Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive; A lil’ somethin’ (fabric) flower;   Versa Color ink (paprika) Hero Arts embossing powder (clear); Watermark stamp pad (dazzle) unknown embossing Powder (orange); Ranger liquid pearls (cantaloupe); Rusty Pickle (orange) and Bo Bunny (Vicki B) Alpha stickers; white signo gel pen; National Art Materials Gesso Primer (white); Rico Design artist gel; Derivan Matisse Impasto medium 2; Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists (heirloom gold); orange tissue paper; orange paper doily.
Thanks so much for popping over today, please leave a comment and let me know you were here.
I hope you're all  having a fanatastic week {hearts'n'hugs}

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
