CAS cards or layouts!!!...I am totally challenged to handle this style, but who wants to give up! Yes, I have tried my hand at doing an altered table top calendar in this style with a vintage photo...of me, when I was 4yrs old!
I must admit...it took me a couple of hours and a headache to visualize and execute this mini layout! With due respect to all you crafters who handle this with ease, I really would like you all give this project a closer look and highlight the good and the bad. Yes, I am learning and need to know...
I always got the feeling that I am missing something out...minimum embellishments is just not "me" and I had a tough time stopping it here!
I did enjoy layering the photo mat...also attempeted stitching the photo to piece of rugged canvas. The stitches have come out pretty well and the green PP beneath is torn and crumpled to give little more dimension. The base PP, the yellow CC, photo and the canvas edges are all distressed using scissors.
I just thought I'll remind myself to "smile" in this pic! The quote clipped to the clothes pin is from Inkadinkado and just right for this LO. The coconut shell buttons add life to clothespin which has a coat of gesso.
the flowers are made using CL daisy die and have used mini bricks stencil and yellow acrylic paint to give some texture.
And that's it...pretty simple eh? Did I miss anything here...You tell me.
