Little Girl's Mum usually buys me a random selection of 12 x 12 papers for Christmas - this is one from a couple of years ago which I thought I would never use. As it happens, the paper is double sided, and while I was matching papers to photos I found that each side went perfectly with a different set of pictures! What to do.......?
I cut out a scalloped circle shape from the centre and put the cut out piece to one side, to use with the other photos. Then I cut a plain circle out of bazzill swiss dot in red (can't remember the exact colour name). The photos were positioned and mounted on foam tape, then I put pearls around the circle.
The title is robo-cut (font: Birmingham) in the same red, but when I laid it out, it didn't look quite right, so I cut it in green as well and offset the red over the green for a shadow effect. Still it needed something more, so I die-cut a long swirl, split it into two, then placed flowers over it, with some gems for the centres.
