Pretty Up Crazy Dogs with Pattern Paper

Hello friends! 
Are you ready for more Crazy Dogs posts???
hello (close-up)

I am using today's post as an example of showing how you can "dress up" an image like Crazy Dogs. 
to be honest, I am a huge fan of Tim Holtz products, but when it comes to grunge, Halloween and steampunk...not so much.
I was determined to pretty up the images with pattern paper.  Is it possible? 
I added Calais Butterflies from Memory Box.  I think the butterflies are perfectly fitting for the bewildered look on the doggie...

I colored all the Crazy Dog images with Kuretake and the watercoloring does such a good job. I often struggle with animal and people images with coloring. Now that the watercolors really make coloring easy for someone like me.

It is fun and easy to use scrapbooking and Project Life sentiment for these images. 

If you are on the fence about the Crazy Dogs images, I hope that you get to see the cute and pretty side of it. The pattern paper really make a difference for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

You're right, the patterned paper really does make a difference. Of course, it doesn't hurt that you're such a master and using it. And I think you picked my favorite dog out of this set. He looks so bewildered, just like my pup when I catch him doing something he shouldn't.

Excellent. I love those dogs and bought the stamp. Your idea gives me much food for thought and taming those guys.

Super cute Virginia. I've just got the crazy cats and wasn't going to get the dogs but am seeing them everywhere. Love how you have made them so pretty and sweet.
