Today I want to share a page I made for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog's 2nd challenge of the month - to scrap with small photos. I took hundreds of photos during my recent trip to Las Vegas and yet this page actually uses several of my friend Jacqui's pics (she took a more complete record of the myriad shapes made by the magical fountains outside the Bellagio Hotel than I did). I used a Sizzlit film-strip die to include several shots of them: the frames are 2cm x 3cm so I used a my printer software to re-size the photos to fit behind them.
The film-strip frames die was also used to add texture to some of my patterned paper; to stop the cut-outs from falling out I added double-sided tape to the back after die-cutting and used this to stick the patterned film-strips to the page. Everything is from my April Counterfeit Kit apart from the Echo Park blue title alphas which needed a little extra ink to make them tone better with the cardstock.
Have you been playing along with Shimelle's weekend crop? The deadline is almost upon us which is why I've linked this page there too - it ties in nicely with her 15th challenge - to scrap with less than perfect photos - by printing the blurrier ones really small you can appreciate the shapes made by the fountains without noticing the imperfections!
