Layout for SK ~ 2nd Challenge

For this round, I am feeling less inspired! Gaaahhhh!! Anyway, I managed to complete the simple look of my LO. The 2nd Challenge for SK Marathon final clue can be found here.

Ka Jasmin needs the scrappers to come up with the MOST CREATIVE PHOTO MATTING EVER in our scrapbook layout. We are not to use the usual cardstock matting. But nevertheless the use of cardstock is allowed but must be used in the MOST CREATIVE WAY.

So here's my outcome layout:

~* My Blossom Girl *~




A closer look on the matted photos.



First I glued a bluish crepe paper on the PP. Cut off the excessive crepe papers. Painted on its surface with Tea Dye Distress Crackle Paint. After it dries and cracked, painted over it with MM Strawberry & Cream Acrylic Paint followed by dabbing some Adirondack Pearl Acrylic Paint around the crepe paper. Later on I attached a flexible craft wire (Sorry, I still don't know the real term for it) on the painted surface. Glued a paper doyle which I have sprayed some Red Velvet Glimmer Mist, on top of the craft wire. Finally I glued the photos on top of my so-called "photo matting" and brushed off some Strawberry & Cream paint around the photos to create a frame.

Hope it can pass. sigh.

Can't wait for the 3rd Clue tomorrow!!

Thanks for lookin!
