Stamperia Around the World Layout

     Hello FotoBella Fans! Drea here with the Design Team, and I'm back with another layout featuring Stamperia's Around the World collection, and this great photo of my late grandpa.

     These awesome papers were just screaming to be torn and distressed! Then I had to add some splashes with the Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil. The first layer was done with Weathered Wood Distress Ink applied with my Blending Tool. Next came a coat of Prima Marketing's Clear Gesso for some dimension. Once dry, I used my finger to smudge a little of Tumbled Glass Distress Crayon from Set #5 without the stencil.

          I fussy-cut the fish on top, and inked the edges with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, also used around half of the paper behind the photo. Then I gave it a coat of Ranger's Glossy Accents to give it that fresh out of the water look, and popped it up with some foam tape.

          Not wanting to cover the whale with my paper layers, I used an X-acto knife to cut him in half, and also gave him a coat of Glossy Accents.

     I wish I knew the story behind this photo, but was able to preserve my late Grandma's handwriting on the back of the photo by printing it onto a torn piece of the cream paper inked along the bottom and right edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I love how closely it matches the script on the background paper!  I also added one of her buttons to the center of the Wooden Embellishment.

          Thanks for looking, and shop for these supplies and more!
