This is my cute little pumpkin Catherine. She's two months old in this picture, nestled in the pumpkins. We were at a pumpkin patch and I couldn't resist putting her in the crate to take a few quick pics.
used a neutral colored background with fun music notes and writing.
This is what I call a neutral patterned paper, it will transform into
whatever you want it to be for colors and style, a step up from just
textured card stock. I then added my own flair of paints and water for
the circle and splatter drips effects. You really can't go wrong here
and below are the 3 steps I took to achieve these effects.
Paint drip, circle, and flick tutorial
I used a cheap plastic kids paint brush and "flicked" the watered-down
paint onto your paper for the paint splatters (yellow spots)
A plastic flower pot about 2.5 inches in diameter for the rings, just
put paint of the rim of the pot and press onto your paper for a coffee
mark stain effect (large circles in orange)
3) A child's
medicine dropper filled with a watery paint mixture and drop it onto the
paper and lift the paper up vertically to let the paint run down the
page (orange dripping spot)
4) Make sure you let your page dry before adding anything else to it or it will smudge and distort your lovely work!!

the paint dried I added layers of fall colored papers, flowers, leaves,
and doilies for a beautiful autumn page for my little pumpkin.
