Hi there.

After playing with September Studio Calico scrapbooking kit, today I decided to dig into the remains of the August kit; I loved the black, white and green theme going through all the papers and embellishments and thought that it would work with the black and white photo. For the background, I painted smudges with Ayeeda Metallic Green and Matte Green paint from 13arts on Grey card from the SC kit to make a two-tone frame for the paper cluster. Once the paint dried, I used texture stamps from Kaisercraft and Finnabair to add some dimension and break the green colour with some black accents. After attaching the paper cluster and the photo, I used the alpha cards from the kit to make the title – ‘U & ME”. To finish, I added green and white enamel dots and randomly sprinkled the page with Ayeeda Matte Green and Chalk White mists.

The photo I used is a copy of a caricature I got done during a Teaching Conference I attended at the beginning of the year. We don’t really take ‘selfies’ and I think this drawing is both funny and cute at the same time; I really like it.

Thanks for visiting again.
