Alpha Animal Pages

I came across these little puffy animal stickers a while ago and just had to buy them. (I think they might be SandyLion designs?) I had no particular use in mind and they've been sitting all lonely in the cupboard for months. I finally came up with an idea for several pages - combining these stickers along with some leftover grungeboard letters. Adding the stickers in this way makes the page more versatile, they don't need to coordinate with 'zoo' pictures or anything, I think they're just a nice backdrop for everyday photos.

Here's the A - alligator page.

12 x 12" background
10 x 10" green background frame
(3) 4.5" square frames - green
3.5" square frame - white
Scrap paper, stamps, thread

To start, I used a glue stick to cover the grungeboard letter. Using the little Close to My Heart sanding files, I could sand in the center and around the edges to distress it. Next up I added some vines with green thread and topped the white square with the alligator and leaf stickers. I stamped three "A" words on scrap paper and trimmed around each word. Next - everything got inked. I'm sure this is Walnut Stain from Tim Holtz' line. Last step, adhere it all down and add pictures!
