I guess the title's not very original! (hehee!)
I'm just trying to scrap some of my children's pictures. (It's really about time I got around to it!!)
This is my daughter at 7 months. (Sarah's mom) I enjoyed cutting and tearing the papers and edging them with gold leaf. All the papers that are layered were cut from behind the picture and edged in gold leaf.
The photo holders are really photo corners that I put on the edge. There's a gold leaf 'mask' on the left side (hard to see) I used the doily (below it) for the repeated pattern, and I splashed some of the gold leaf on the letters and on the papers too as well as the edges. The swirls are hand cut. And the year is covered in gold leaf.
I'm putting this in the big picture challenge.
