I was immediatly drawn to the speech bubble stamp and found that a repetive pattern would make a great statement to this layout. I gathered my supplies, which included my black Staz On ink pad, an acrylic mounting block, my Honey Bee scissors & the ProArts Glue Gun. I also printed off some wallet sized photos as well as a collage of some Instagrams which you can do easisly in Picnik.
Start by stamping the speech bubble on several different patterned papers & cut out. I also wanted to use some of the other stamps in these sets like the PRINT & Approval.
Next, I stamped the image over several smaller sized photos & cut those out. (please excuse my unkept acrylic block...it's in dire need of a cleaning)
To assemple the layout, I knew I wanted some of the images to pop off the page so I adhered them with foam tabs. I left a blank spot at the bottom right corner to work in my title. This is where you can make these stamps work for you. I often cut up wording because they don't always fit & I'm not not going to use an image I love just because of that. The quote was very fitting for me right now & I wanted to emphasize the word BELIEVED. I used the Amy Tan thickers from the Handmade kit for the title & worked the stamp around the word by cutting "she".
I added a few speckles of Atmosphere mist at the bottom to finish it off.
Thanks for joining me today! Hope this inspires you to think outside the box with your stamps as far as using photographs and cutting up phrases.
