Be Bold...Live Loudly

When I first saw this little 4x3 card in this months Cocoa Daisy Kit, I thought of my little Louis. I ended up not using it though, I just couldn't get it to work how I wanted

Then this week I was totally inspired by Sharmaine's blog post.
Thinking Small
I'd printed off some photos for a mini book recently that came out to small and were sat on my desk, so I used one of those and made this.

This title is so fitting for my siblings. I cut the project life card up in to 4 strips and it now worked perfectly for me.

Keeping in with the small theme I used the teeny paperclips and the tint wood veneer '&' from the Main Cocoa Daisy Kit.

For the background I used a new CW mask with inktense blocks, pressing them, yellow and green. It made so much mess. Chalk dust everywhere. I then took a wide flat brush and lightly brushed over with water and letting it drip a little too.
I was so inspired by Sharmaine's post that I've passed on this inspiration to you now and set this as our Cocoa Daisy mid month challenge. Come and see here for more details and to play along.
I hope this inspires you too x

Our family is full of the loud and silly gene too but I guess you probably could have guessed that ;)
