A Few of our Favourite Things
This challenge on the MME blog was one I just couldn't resist! I love to do multi-photo layouts and the challenge here is to use 10 photos one your layout. Now these photos were screaming to be scrapped together :) My girls were fascinated by the old phone boxes in London which had been cleverly turned into works of art. They insisted on having a photo with every box that we came accross - and there were lots!! These are just some of our favourites!
I printed out 9 photos at 1.75 x 3.5 '' ( a weird size I know but it fitted well to the shape of the phone boxes and my page size). The 10th photo I cropped into a circle. I arranged the photos into a grid over my background paper. I sprayed yellow glimmer mist over wooden butterflies to get the masked effect (see my tutorial here). I fussy cut the title element and the kites from my MME paper and punched a couple of circles to layer under the photo block and balance out my circular photo. I completed my page with washi tape, bakers twine, punched butterflies and my journaling :)
Natalie and Sophie really love this page and want me to frame it for their wall - Sophie wants a London phone box for her next birthday lol :)
