Be True (a 12x12)

Here's a layout I finished up recently :)

To inspire you using UmWowStudio for the Scrap Around The World challenge!

The base is a whole sheet of Prima Marketing paper from Epiphany with a tear and peek through piece of Coffee Break. The tag for the photo mat is also from Coffee Break. I've used quite a few mixed media techniques on this page.. but in minute amounts to keep the layout a bit cleaner :)

Behind the photo I've put done some splatters of a Prima bloom spray, some drywall tape, and some of Finn's german glass glitter in gel medium through an UmWowStudio Harlequin stencil. The photo is held to the mat with tape and paper clips. It's also been embellished with some leaves, metal bits and a flower from Prima AND a Be True stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps!.

I always feel like the HOLES of the tags are bare if they aren't embellished, but sometimes I want to do more than thread them with ribbon. On this one I folded over some May Arts Ribbon and adorned it with a piece of chipboard from the Leaf Stems set from UmWowStudio. The leaf stem has been covered in gesso and bloom spray. I topped it off with a prima flower.

A bit more Prima goodness finishes off the tear I put at the bottom... there's more of the Be True stamp, some paper reinforcements cut from Coffee Break, some beautiful thin white thread and some Say It In Crystals. Done, Done, and Doner!
