Deb's 'Make It Your Own' LO

 
Have you felt a bit over-whelmed with a page that has already got a lot on it?
Deb has some great ideas how you can maximise your own impact......
 
 
 Deb
Even though pages like this one pretty much have it all except your photo, I still like to add a few little bits to make it my own.
Image

So first I mark where my photo will go......
Image

and because some leaves and the butterfly were "in the way" I have cut around the overlapping parts with a craft knife.
Image

Image

I then start to add some extra bits to the background.......
Using a stamp and some distress paint I have done some random bricks on the background and also rubbed on some distress stain to the background (very randomly) and also used a mist to add colour to some of the leaves.
Image

Image

I then pop my photo back on the page attaching it only in the middle (leaving all the edges unstuck) and start to add bits and pieces under the photo.

Image

Image

and a bit more colour (the butterfly got a dabbing with some distress stain)
Image

and some splatters with some mist...
Image

add some extra flowers and some word stickers and a title......
Image

Distress the edge and it is now your "own" creation.
Image

Distress stains......Tattered rose, weathered wood, vintage photo.
Distress paint.......Frayed burlap.
Tattered angels glimmermist.....English Ivy.
Lace.
Flowers.
Alphas.
