Ruby Sky quickly picked up the sounds farm animals make (she's an Old MacDonald Has a Farm addict! can't get enough of that song...), and after that, every horse she met was called Nay Nay.
I really love these cute mini decks that Jenni Bowlin Studios came out with, and when I saw the farm animal set I knew exactly where that horse card was going. ;)
I really love these red skinny alphas. I have used them a lot lately.
I distressed the receipt paper behind the title quite a bit. I loved the shape, it fit my title perfectly, and I liked the lines and perforations quite a bit. But the received/cheque aspect didn't work with my layout very well. I used several types of sandpaper (very find to rough), scissors edges, and my fingers, to distress this paper in layers. I love the faded, worn effect using multiple types of distressing creates.
I tucked in lots of little bits and pieces from my Jenni Bowlin Studio stash around the horse card. A star sticker placed on star chipboard, then distressed and stapled and knotted with thread. A few straight pins. Some stars -- sanded red stickers, white adhesive rhinesontes, and a punchie -- sprinkled around. A bit of torn JBS figure paper. A piece of ruler sticker from a JBS label sheet. And then some book page, washi, and a nest of tangled thread.
I placed another smaller cluster above the horse card, but kept this one much more simple to avoid overwhelming the page too much. I didn't want that side of the page to be one big pile-up of tangled embellishment mess. I used some similar elements -- a label, the colour red, stars, ruler sticker, distressing, and a white rhinestone star.
