When I saw the brick pattern and torn poster papers from the Workshop collection I knew I wanted to use them with a photo of Gracia, dressed as a punk for a fancy dress party (from 12 years ago) and to make it look like she was on a poster on a wall.
I started by using the Linear Stencil to emboss a scrap of white card by running it through my BigShot with a piece of foam on top of the stencil. I cut this to 7 x 5 to use as my photo mount.
I trimmed .25in from the top and ones side of the Fearless paper and added it to the Kaisercard Biscuit Weave Cardstock, I then tore away each side of the Courageous paper and inked the edges with a Licorice ink pad and added it the centre of the Fearless paper. The embossed photomount was added to the centre of this, using Mounting Foam Dots.
I used the Decorative Die – Cogs to cut two of each size from a pizza box and gently removed sections of the top paper to reveal the corrugated card beneath. I then added Licorice ink to the exposed ribbed parts.
I also cut two Decorative Die Floral Frames from scraps of black card and added these to the top left and bottom right of my photo mount. I also added two squares of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to the top right and bottom left of my photo mount but after reflection decided to remove these.
I used Navy and Lagoon Art Foam and Decorative Die – DIY Flora Peony to make some flowers and Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves for the leaves. After forming the flowers I added a sparkly silver sticker (from my own supplies) and coloured the leaves using Licorice and Avocado inks and Gold Shimmer spray.
I am really pleased with how this page turned out and think that I achieved the effect I had wanted to – a torn poster on a brick wall.
