My Pumpkin Catherine **Momenta and Flamingo Scraps**

This is my cute little pumpkin Catherine.  She is 2 months old in this picture as she is nestled in the pumpkins. We were at a local pumpkin patch and I just could not resist laying her in the crate and taking a few quick pics.

I 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 cardstock.  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
1) I used a cheap plastic kids paint brush and "flicked" the smooch mist onto your paper for the paint splatters (yellow spots)
2) 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) - smooch glitz works great for this because it has a fine tip applicator
3) A child's medicine dropper filled with spray mists (like Smootch spritz) 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!!

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