3rd Year

If you are wanting a challenge check out this sketch from 'Stuck'. It is a really simple one and you can add as much or as little detail to your take as you like. I used it to scrap a school photo of my youngest daughter. I don't find it easy to scrap school photos as they are generally so uninspiring  so I challenged myself to do a 81/2x11 page for my daughter's school album. The papers that I used are all from Teresa Collins. I sprayed and inked my background and used my edge punches to add interest to the border. 
The layered photo look was actually a happy accident. I inadvertently sprayed ink over the first photo that I was going to use and instead of throwing it away I decided to tuck it behind my new print to give this cool layered effect. 
Have a great week
