This is a page I did for my Trends on Tuesday over at A Trip Down Memory Lane it's all about ripping and there is a little guide to doing it and some other fantastic sites with examples to visit....so here is the link if you would like to take a look.
You will notice that our summer holidays involved a dream family holiday....we went to Florida and did Disney. You will also notice in the pages that my youngest absolutely adored having his photo taken with the characters.....it is up there as one of his favourite things!!! So this was on our first trip to Disney Land and we came off the wonderful log flume ride and noticed Woody and Jessie popping out, so we had to queue and he got his photo taken with them. I got it printed in sepia to add to that cowboy feel. The papers are a real mix, the base is one of my favourites and it is Simple Stories Awesome collection (as well as the bingo card), the blue/green and yellow papers are all Cosmo Cricket tea for two and the woodgrain and horse card are part of October Afternoons Farmhouse collection.
So the page started with the ripping and layering of papers behind the rips, I then added a couple of strips of tissue tape above and below where I wanted my photo matt. I layered up the photo with the Cosmo Cricket papers - which I inked, stitched and distressed. I slotted in the bingo card and the October Afternoon Miscellany and added a wide band of lace just under the corner. Stuck this all down and used some staples as sticking onto fabric without using loads of glue and getting messy is tricky! I layered up a pin with a tando star and a maya road wooden button. I recently got a couple of alpha sets from kaisercraft and this is the grunge one which I used for the title, I used white cardstock and tea dye distress ink and then mounted it on the yellow Cosmo Cricket paper. The last bit was to add some flicks of brown cosmic shimmer mist. I really enjoyed this technique - even ripping one of my favourite pieces of paper (I have decided to use my favourite pieces of paper rather than hang onto them!!! :)) and definitely something I will try again.
