over at the Inspired Scrapper ... I posted this layout for the "Using Imperfect Photos Challenge" ... go on and take a look at the challenge ... there are also wonderful layouts by Susan Tutt and Erica Perkins.
This layout was pure play ... i used very old patterned paper ... and random older bits like Heidi Swapp clear stars, Bazzill chipboard stars and an Imaginisce brad. I also used some new bits like the Tim Holtz word and button, the Maya Road star pin and the vintage images from Crafty Secrets. I even used a broken bling bracelet.
i also used a bit of tulle behind the photo just to give the layout a little bit of a hazy/diffused area. I changed the colour of the title letters using ..... and finally i coloured the chipboard gears with two shades of the glimmer glam ... it was fun to just play with techniques and relax ... especially after my recent scrapping disasters.
So peeps, haul out a bad photo, go visit The Inspired Scrapper, and give yourself time to play with techniques this weekend.
Peace, Love & Paper ~ Jo
