Our lovely DT member SANDRA created a beautiful layout which was featured in a recent issue of Scrapbook Magazine to create a layout for less than £5.00.
We thought that most people have lots of unused things just waiting for that perfect layout so the technique is to "use your stash" !
I used Basic Grey Curio papers which I have had since they first came out and made the following:
Below is Sandra's gorgeous original and our sketch.
I surrounded my photograph with cut blooms from the paper, some are layered with 3d foam, and added small thumbprint photos of the day into them. I also added a strip made with photobooth down one side.
I wanted to added lots of photo's of our day out - organised by Robert and Lianne for my birthday last year - The show Wicked!, a visit to the M&M shop in Leicester Square and dinner at the Rainforest Cafe with a volcano of a desert as in the main picture.
I added some beautiful teal crushed ribbon under the photo which I have frilled with red tape.
I cut a butterfly from the paper I used behind the folded corners and raised the wings on foam pads.
