April Fool's Day!! Faux is the word of the day!

Happy First of April!

Also known in my house as:  Prank Daddy Day!!

My kids and I really enjoy practical jokes and when my love for all things funny collide with my love of crafting...this is what you get!

Here is a quick link to the Faux-Leather Technique used to create this AWESOMELY fun background!

 Who knew raiding the hubby's toolbox could be so fun!

The great thing about this technique is you can make your 'leather' any color you want!  Makes a really cool neutral background...looks 'manly' and EVERYONE will want to know how you did it!

And can we talk about the balloons?!  A friend showed me this super cute idea and I thought it was the perfect 'trick' to add to this piece!
Use any size circle punch...and cut a cute little triangle out and VOILA! You just made a balloon! 
The best part, our Natural Twine, Bakers Twine, or any string you choose works great here. 
Wrap it around and call it a day!  No knots!!  
Also:  I used two dimensionals on top of each other to get the Summer Starfruit balloon to pop on top of the Gumball Green balloon which only used one dimensional.  The Razzberry Ripple Balloon is secured with just a glue dot.  Gives multi layers and adds dimension.

Want to see some more amazing examples using this technique?
Head on over to SSINKSPIRATION and see what my fellow designers have come up with!
