I am on a mission! A mission to use this film strip die that my sweet hubby got me for Christmas. He knows how much I love photography, so he picked this out - gotta love that! However, I find it a bit tricky. It is so specific that it can be troublesome to find the right use. So, here we go - I WILL get these die cuts on a layout.
Tone on tone might be nice. Perhaps kraft?Oh, yes - I like that! I have this silly little photo that I took using my rearview mirrow and my phone. ALL 3 kids were asleep! So rare and so wonderful! I didn't dare try to get out and take a proper photo for fear they might wake up!
Let's add some layers under the die cut pieces. Stamping with paint? Yes, I think so:
I like that! While it dries, we can work on some tags for journaling... Stamping with mist seems like a good idea:
Oooooh, I like!
Now for some Amy Tan Journaling spots:
There we go:
Stitching and washi details added:
Let's spruce up the background with some blue droplets:
I have found a fun Amy Tan envelope for the journaling tags, as well as a cute little die cut of 3 people:
Title time! More Amy Tan with the letter stickers:
Letters are stitched on:
A touch more washi, some pen lines, and I shall call it done!
I rarely do hidden journaling, but thought it might be fun for this silly little photo. I also rarely plan a whole layout around one die cut element. I had fun working a bit out of the norm and I am pretty happy with how this fun little moment ended up getting scrapped :)
What about you? Do you do hidden journaling? Do you plan a whole page around one little element? What pushes you to work out of the norm?
