18 Years Later ~ ScrapFIT Reveal for Workout #54

I just knew when I came across this old photo of the girls with their cousin, Connie, I had to take a current shot and scrap them together. ScrapFIT Workout #54 was a perfect fit for these photos.

Numbers, numbers, and more numbers! Let's see a layout or card with lots and lots of numbers. Can you use them in your title? Can you add them as an embellishment? Can you stamp them? YES you can do all of those and more! Show us how your numbers add up!

Here is my example for you. I even used the numbers zero and one along with the negatives from the zeros to create my flowers:


I hope you are inspired to join us for this fun Workout!!

The winner of this Workout will receive this fabulous prize from The Paper Bakery Kit Club:

Be sure to head on over to ScrapFIT to be inspired by the work of our fabulous DT!

Techniques:

Masking
This paper came with a sticker sheet that had flowers in two sizes that coordinate with the flowers on the paper. I stuck them on the paper and spritzed glimmer mist over them as a mask. I used a few drops of Un-Du adhesive remover to get them off without damaging the page or the stickers. The funny think is that I blotted with a paper towel and since the stickers were shiny, the glimmer mist wiped right off, so I'll be able to use the stickers on another page.

Flowers
I looked through my fonts to find 0's and 1's that looked similar to flower petals, and cut out bunches of them on my Gazelle. The o's were placed on a larger circle of kraft and once adhered, I trimmed around the petals. The ones and negatives from the zeros where inked then adhered to a small circle of kraft then shaped and curled, then a rhinestone placed in the center of each.

Stitching
Because the girls were so young in the older photo, and down the road it might be hard to remember who each one is in the photo, I drew lines connecting the girls between the photos and hand stitched the lines to write the girls' names on.

  3. I love all the techniques you used. The flowers made from 0 and 1s are super clever, I wouldn't have known if you didn't explain. The stitching connection is a great way to identify people. TFS!
