For the Record | Three Birds Studio

Here's a layout I had up over on the 3 Birds Studio blog. I combined some of my favorite papers from the new Midday Medley collection along with an old black and white photo from the 40's.
I cut strips from different pieces of the patterned paper, punching a few with a scalloped edge punch and then adhered the strips to the cardstock. To add a bit more color to the white cardstock, I brushed just a bit of paint on the edges, and splattered a little here and there.
Since this is an old heritage photo, the “for the record” chipboard seemed like the perfect embellishment piece. I added those cute little clouds just for fun, and a few sequins from my stash.
As always, thanks for stopping by!

The layered strips look great and so full of color. I must try this idea
