Not good. Not conducive to a calm scrapping moment.
SO. I decided to stick to a sketch - and I chose the one over at C'est Magnifique - because it just seemed to go SO well with the CSI colours - AND the photo I had in mind. I just rotated the sketch clockwise.
It's no secret that I love fussy cutting - especially photographs! I wanted this one of Isabella (which, to me, has a very 50's, almost retro feel to it) to pop. Sometimes we can lose the pictures amongst all the beauty of paper and embellishments! The heading is board, which I embossed with hazelnut embossing powder and while it was still tacky, I sprinkled chocolate coloured glitter on it. Once dry, I coated it with Glossy Accents.
My 2 journalling tags were tucked into a little pocket and numbered.
I thoroughly enjoyed putting this piece together! Thanks CSI and C'est Magnifique! :-)
