OK!! Onto the project!
I started with this empty Brie cheese container that I had saved for altering.
I then pulled out one of my favorite Graphic45 paper lines, Curtain Call, Want2Scrap Nestaboard Stars Five, the coordinating Spellbinders dies and some Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon. A combination of Studio matte Multi Medium, Antique Linen Distress Ink and some left over bling that I altered with a black Copic marker and this is what I came up with:
But wait! There's more!! Take off the lid and inside is a little mini album of various pictures of my kiddos, in costume at differnt stages of their young lives, ready to play the leading men in the show!!
I covered circles cut from thin cardboard (the 12 x 12 cardboard that comes in paper packs) with more of the Graphic45 Curtain Call and used them as my background for pictures that I edited to a sepia tone in PSE.
The "pages" of the mini album where adhered to a piece of black ribbon and covered over on the back with SU's Riding Hood Red card stock with Scor-tape. I'll write the details of the photos on the back for journaling. I did add a loop to the top of the ribbon, just in case I decide that I want to hang the collage for show.
A couple of observations:
1) The Nestaboard is sturdy, yet light weight. And I was very impressed that it matched PERFECTLY with the Spellbinder's coordinating dies.
2) The Multi Medium held up the best to adhere the Film Strip Ribbon. I tried to use Humungo Sticky Tape, as it adheres metal wonderfully, but the twisting of the ribbon caused it to pull off. The Multi Medium is still holding strong.
3) It would appear that my children stopped posing for pictures at age 3. I really have no excuse not to get caught up on my scrap booking (I'm only behind about 12 years) as I would only have a total of 6 years to scrap. sigh.............
I'm thinking that this idea would be great gifts for the grandparents for the holidays!
Till next time...............enjoy some creativity!!
