The Studio Selfie Challenge

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Morning, y'all!  Just popping in to share my take on The Studio's latest challenge.  We want to see pages boasting your selfie pics this time.  There may be other people in your photo(s), as evidenced by my newest cutie below; but, of course, you must also be in it (them) and have taken it (them) yourself.  Here goes.
I started this page by smudging Patina Glimmer Mist on the notebook, patterned, paper, base page, as well as rubbing it, through a couple of stencils, with Barn Door and Pumice Stone Distress Inks.  I then stamped it, in Lucky Limeade ink, with the starburst medallions, before layering lots of color-coordinating, patterned papers, as well as a Cameo-cut bit of "XOXO", lace vellum, behind my selfies, which were matted with Whisper White cardstock.  The pie chart was created with a trio of other patterned papers and anchored, with navy-threaded, straight, machine stitches, behind the top edge of my photos.
I then grounded my photos with my "the best PART of me is YOU" title, which was created with gray and red Alphabeans, as well as ivory, shadow alphas and a "me" and "YOU" cut, with my Cameo, from Whisper White and glitter cardstocks.
The April 27, 2014 date was then etched upon a gray, chevron, file, folder tab and tucked in behind my right selfie.
A couple bits of flair, as well as a wood veneer camera and stamped, in Jet Black ink, on vellum, and hand-cut arrow, which was secured, to the page, with a simple staple, round out the bulk of my design.
Another arrow, created in the same way as the previous one with the exception of a little, Baker's Twine bow, as well as a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on Oatmeal cardstock, frame, which was filled in with the stamped, in Real Red ink, "so sweet" phrase and hand cut out, dress up the top edge.  A handful of green and gray brads, as well as a couple of gray, enamel hearts and lots of little, black, painted splatters, complete the look.
Further inspiration for this layout came from My Mind's Eye's May Sketch Challenge.
Please be sure to stop by the challenge link above to get all your challenge details, as well as to be thoroughly inspired by this talented team.  Thanks so much for stopping by, friends; and to those of you living in the U.S., have a safe and blessed Memorial Day tomorrow!  Hugs!
