This layout was created for the September Crafty Challenge at Two Scrapbooking Friends. The challenge was to create a scrapbook layout featuring ourselves.
I only appear in a small percentage of the photos we take (this is intentional). For this challenge I went back a few years…….okay I went back quite a few years when I was about 3 years old. Although my career as a runway model never took off, this challenge was a great chance to reflect on great memories of my childhood.
I haven’t looked closely at this picture in a while. When I pulled it out to scrapbook I realized how much of my daughters I can now see in my face when I was a child. I really enjoyed sharing stories about my “modelling” days with my daughters.
This photo was only a copy that I used. I am still new to scrapbooking, so I didn’t feel comfortable scrapbooking the original photo.
On the white back ground I used a Prima camera stencil and modelling paste to give the camera's dimension. I then used Gelatos (guava) with a wet sponge for a bit of colour.Paper: MME Cut & Paste Flair, Chalk StudioEmbellishments: American Craft Twine, Prima Camera Clips, Fancy buttons & Camera, Maggie Holmes Die cuts, MME enamel dots.Letters: American Craft Thickers (Marquise), Authentique "Delightful"The butterflies, tag and vellum pocket came from a Studio Calico kit.
