The photos are of Scotti and Jordyn at a local BMX bike track. I have done so many bike photos that now I am nervous I scrapped these photos already! LOL! Wouldn't be the first time I've done that though (or the last! LOL!)
Can I tell you all how impressed I am with the Tim Holtz Texture Fades! They are deeply embossed that they just jump off the paper! I do wonder how that will be with certain papers, these were thick enough but they still cracked when embossed. That was fine for this project because the distressing matching the feel.
I finally bought the DCWV Rock Star stack and used those prints for this page. I fussy cut the flocked flower and slid my photo underneathe. I used Basic Grey Granola letter stickers. That was my first time using them and I have to say I was super impressed with the thickness of these. Very easy to use! I gave them a layer of Glossy Accents as well. I like how that looks against the softness of the flocking. Plus because it is a clear medium you could still see the distressing on the white letters.
I had see Jennifer McGuire do some dots on a project and after doing the letters with Glossy Accents, I realized that would be perfect for the dots on this printed paper! IRL this looks amazing! A small detail but very effective!
You can also see here some of the layering. There was a lot of layering in this LO. Because the papers were white cored I distressed with a sanding block to pull out the white in the edges, which also helped enforce the white in the color scheme. I used my border punch but kept my mistakes in punching, fun silly detail.
Thanks for coming by and hope you all have a FUN and SAFE 4th of July!!!!
