I just used one of the Hambly Clearly Heavy Overlays as my base. I have to admit that it had gotten scratched somewhere along the way which was a real bummer but I decided to go with it anyway.
Because of the scratching, I chose to place the elements of my layout carefully in order to cover up the scratching. It worked pretty well, if not perfectly.
I love the Hambly tree rub-ons, was wishing I had those in ALL the colors. Unfortunately, I don't think they are even making them anymore, but they are a super cute product!
I also created a black frame for my photostrip in photoshop to lend the look of a film strip. It's not quite the same as it might have been had I added the holes but I enhanced that by adding some of the Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon which is one of my favorite items he's ever made.
My layout was inspired by miss Susan Beth who lives in a glorious location in Montana. It's not too likely I'll ever get to live in such a place, but I do occasionally get to take trips and so these photos are from the Silverton area of Colorado. Loved that place. Need to go back again.
Here is the finished product. I will tell you that photographing a page on a transparency is no easy task. I searched all over my house for a place with ample light and minimal reflection. I finally found a decent spot but it was tricksey! Not thrilled with the background of my tile stairway, but I avoided the glare so you take what you can get.
Do you like what see? Then follow me! (hee hee, cheesy rhyme) Yep, there's a button on the right and I'd love to see your beautiful mug over there when I'm here!
