Remember when....




Hi everyone... so today I am working with a photo that was old but also was cut and shaped
from being in an oval frame. Well using the Kreaxions oval templates I marked off
the closest I could get to the photo and still be able to border punch with Kreaxions #917.
I backed it with pink to pop the hearts and then used the oval template again to mark
off an outer oval larger than photo. This edge I then stitched mounting the photo to 
the other layers I had already done.
This photo looked like it was hanging in limbo and needed a border to give
it a base.. so what better than a Kreaxions cut border matted and edged to match
the colours in the photo matting.
I use fun soft colours from the Momenta papers and accents that match.
I added a metal key tied off with twine, popped some stickers for depth, doodled 
the stems of the flowers added some buttons.
