This page includes a photo of my DD at the fair a few years back. She was hugging a Living Statue. These performers are pretty incredible; not only do they act like statues but they really do look like a statue. The look on the performer's face in the photo is one of contentment with a Mona Lisa smile. If you could see this up close and in person, it would tug at your heart strings....trust me. I LOVE the script paper from My Mind's Eye!!! I found myself wanting to hoard it. :) It is kind of hard to see, but I tore the script paper horizontally and then I actually burned it...using a real flame! I love the look of burnt paper.
After I covered the box in paper, I used one of the stamps that came in the main kit (a burlap-texture) and stamped all over the paper. Then, I took a stencil from the embellishment kit and added some clock faces and numbers all over the box. I took the chain that came in the add on kit and draped it around the box top.
I decided to double mat the photos and try to make some old photo corners by ripping some paper by hand. I used the dark blue Stickles that came in the kit to dress up the corners. I really love the Paper Rosette Sizzix die. I decided to make my own ticket and added it to the top of the flower.
I used a Spellbinders Heart die and then dry brushed some white paint across it to highlight the embossing. I layered it over a piece of Gimmer Glass.
