I've been wanting to scrap this for ages. When I heard that Tick Tock was this weeks theme for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, I knew that this was the time to do it.
My Great, Great Aunt Lala took this photo in 1965. She was a creative soul who dressed department store windows and wore pants during an era when "proper" women didn't do that. She often photographed odd things. She would have LOVED Instagram. ;)
Time flies, doesn't it?
I took my time and created many of my own elements for this layout.
I'm not cheap, but I am frugal...and I like to use my craft supplies in creative, yet cost-effective ways. Stencils and stamps are always a good buy. For this layout, I used my Tim Holtz Clockwork stencil as a template to create my own faux die cut. No machine necessary. I love that! (I try to use stencil patterns like this one, that won't show mistakes from my arthritic fingers.) I also used this fabulous PaperArtsy rubber stamp to make some fun embellishments. I colored them to match my paper and added a bit of Diamond Glaze to the top to create a bit of texture and shine. Another good buy was the Apha Die from Avery Elle. I used it to create title letters in coordinating patterned paper. I purchased this recently and I can see myself using it for years.
