I love the speed scraps at Scrap Matters...somehow, they challenge me to do something different that I would not think of on my own, and each time, I have been thrilled with the results.
The fundamental design aspect of this layout was the requirement for it to be "sans photo". This was the perfect opportunity to do a collage!
Background paper by Jen Alyson Vintage Papers, Clock elements from Nanly, cajoline, ptitesouris, alpha is one of my favorites - Christina Renee Authentic Artistry, photos are public domain vintage ephemera, flower brushes from Mary Ann Wise Wildflower Brushes.
This next speed scrap was to have only 3 papers, no frames, contain food, and feature a number. I used a facebook photo of Megan, Jay and Tod at Jay's dim sum birthday lunch in San Francisco. Photo needed a lot of doctoring, including hanging lanterns to blot out the strangers in the background. I used lots of newly acquired skills to cut, layer, brush, hang...
love the way this turned out!
