These two very different pages were both inspired by the same layout - it was the one by Mahlin Wiggur which was featured on the front cover of the first issue of Scrap365 - I loved it and will probably do several more versions of it in the future
This first one shows my Mum when she was about 14 - I love it because she looks so happy and full of hope with all her life ahead of her. x
You can see I've used one of those bargain PG Tips cards(see a previous post), some of the end of my Quirky Kit (new one due any minute!), lots of washi tape (which I am SO into now), and I've stamped musical score and flourishes which I've highlighted with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls. The photo (NOT the original) was coloured with Distress Inks using a Cut-n-Dry Nib
I've stamped with bubble wrap, then used the bubble wrap on the page. Several colours of pearlescent glue were used to paint the background and create the dragonfly and the "boy" was embossed onto some thin metal and coloured with alcohol ink. The papers were just white scraps which I tore and coloured with inks.
