A Scrapbook Layout: Squinty Smile
I used my Big Shot (more about my Big Shot here) to emboss a rectangle of aluminum foil (yep, regular foil from the kitchen) to accent the main photo. I have a large paperboard tag that I painted with craft acrylics. There is black satin ribbon, a distressed flower made of regular white paper and colored with Perfect Pearls. I even have this weird blue tape/ribbon stuff that we'll call a "found item". At the risk of grossing you out, I'll tell you it was medical tape they used to stick a cotton ball on my arm after taking blood. But, it didn't get dirty, really! The texture was so interesting I pulled it right off and stuck it in my stash (yes, I'm aware I'm a weirdo). The purple accents are a stiff plastic that came in a multipack of large words. Even though they are a little opposite - the script Love verses the quirky You're Funny - I liked them both.
Since it doesn't have the focus and flow I was hoping for overall, I'm reminding myself what I like about it. I like to see that I've branched out a little from what I usually (or used) to do. I like the mix of textures. Most of all, I like that Sammy face!
