Hello! Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team, and I've been saving this precious family photo on my dad's side, that dates back to 1915, for just the right collection. As soon as I saw the vintage Stamperia Around the World Collection, from FotoBella, I knew it was meant to scrap this photo with. Not only does the background paper match the color and texture of the bricks in the photo, but even the style of the bikes match perfectly!
Other than the postcard that I cut below the photo, inking the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, the rest of the papers from the 12 X 12 Paper Pad were torn, including the black cardstock matting the photo. Then I used my finger to apply Prima Marketing's Metallique Wax (Rich Copper) to the edges.
I also used the Wax to cover the black alpha stickers that I had stashed away for YEARS now, in my title and for the date, machine stitching the zigzag underneath.
And finally, I used the Wax over Prima Marketing's Heavy Black Gesso that I applied to the Bike Stencil.
Thanks for taking a peek, and shop FotoBella.com for these supplies and more!
