I've been saving this adorable photo of my little cousin for many years now, just waiting for inspiration to strike. Well that's exactly what happened when I saw this new challenge blog Scrap Around the World.
I was immediately inspired by the colors, fringe, leather, and textures in the mood board, and knew it was time to finally scrap this photo! I used some older Bo Bunny "Gypsy" papers, using silver paint around some of the edges.
I used a specialty brown suede paper to make the title and the fringing on the bottom of the photo. I wanted to use tags like in the sketch, but thought it overcrowded my page. Instead I hid my journaling on a tag that I embossed and hid it under the fringe.
At first I was going to slice my photo into 3 sections to mimic the sketch, but decided to divide my background into 3 sections instead. Before cutting it though, I painted, misted, stamped, and embossed it.
I folded back the tops of the first two sections to reveal the orange paper on the other side.
