This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "all about the big picture." This week, our challenge is to use baker's twine to create a big shape on our layouts. This is the inspiration photo:
As soon as I saw the inspiration photo, I immediately thought of doing a Mickey head for my Disneyland scrapbook. I decided to use my very favorite photo from my day at Disneyland with my BFF. This was taken by one of the Disney professional photographers and I just love it! I even got it made into a magnet for my fridge!
We were in Disneyland for the 60th anniversary, so I chose the navy glitter letters for that reason. The right page to go next to this one will have some navy and baby blue to accompany the photos. Once I finish the layout, I will be sure to post it.
I went outside of my comfort zone for this layout but I am THRILLED with how it turned out! I rarely use white cardstock for my background paper. I've never watercolored on a layout before. (This was a great way to try out the gelatos I got for Xmas!) I've also never stitched on a layout before. I enjoyed that a lot, so I may be doing more stitching in the future!
