'10 YEARS' LAYOUT

THIS WEEK, I'M SHARING A LAYOUT TITLED '10 YEARS' THAT IS A 6" X 12" SPREAD. IT IS GROUNDED WITH A FULL WIDTH 4" X 6" IMAGE AND THEN JAZZED UP WITH METALLIC PUNCHES. I MADE THE TITLE FROM JUMBO SILVER CHIPBOARD LETTERS WHICH I EMBROIDERED ONTO THE PAGE AND A TYPEWRITER STRIP THAT I BLANKET STITCHED FROM THE '1' OF THE TITLE FOR EXTRA DIMENSION. I LAYERED SOME TAIGS AND EMBELLISHMENTS UNDER MY PHOTO AND SCATTERED SILVER SEQUINS WHICH I MINI STAPLED DOWN TO THE SPREAD FOR SECURITY. THAT WAS IT FOR THIS LAYOUT! IT WAS PRETTY QUICK TO COMPLETE ONCE I HAD A LAYOUT IN MIND - THE LONGEST STRETCH (AS USUAL) WAS THE EMBROIDERY OF THE CHIPBOARD NUMERALS BUT I THINK IT WAS WELL WORTH IT!
