For the first time in ages, I have finally got around to entering an online challenge! I saw this one over at 13arts where the challenge is to scrap a photo using a selfie. You can find the challenge here.
I started rummaging through the few selfies I have, then had a brainwave. The best selfies in the world are those taken by my daughter (I may be a little biased there). There was nothing in the rules to say the selfie had to be of me so I used a classic selfie she took when she used to love dressing up in Gothic Lolita clothes. I love that these photos give me the opportunity to do some creative scrapping to match the pics.
Here's my layout - Gothic Lolita Selfie:
I loved creating the background for this. Apart from the 13arts background paper, there is no other paper on here. I created that teal framework using stamping, stenciling, paints, Silks, stitching and pen. I then layered up large alphas to create the subtitle plus add detail to the background framework.
I highlighted some of the designs on the 13arts paper with paints and used the Silks as a wash over some areas.
I treated the Dusty Attic chippies with ink and Tinby Designs Metallic Melts. I love the grungy look this creates. That chippie is a stunner - it's called French Flourish #2.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
