I used photos taken on Stefan's first birthday for my layout. Here is my layout based on the sketch:
Here is some close ups of the layout.
Variation #1: Instead of using a 4x4 main photo, I used a 5x5 photo. My mats are therefore cut to 6x6 and 7x7.
Variation #2: Because I used a larger main photo I also adjusted the sizes of the background strips and used them right across the background. The main yellow block is 5,5 x 12. I cut the cute polaroid frames with my Silhouette Cameo.
Variation #3: I up-sized my polaroid photos from 2x2 to 2,5x2,5 to fit into the polaroid frames.
I have told you before that I have new toys in that I got myself some PanPastels. I added the textured circle to the background with Texture paste and once dry I applied PanPastels to the circle through the stencil. I then set the pastels with Artist spray fixative.
