This is my "Me" page!
For this layout I used Echo Park's "Be Mine" collection - I distressed the edges of the lined paper, and inked them slightly, using Weathered Wood distress inks. I also did this to the spotty paper, and layered my photos over the top of that.
I used 4 small photos that I took of myself on my iPhone - I used an app called camera+ which is brilliant for on the run editing - I used a sepia tint, and a square crop. Once I printed these, I added a rough edge with distress ink again, to add a bit more of a shabby chic feel.
I painted the chipboard letters grey and black to match the shade of the paper a bit more, as well as a chipboard flourish. I layered this with some flowers, a tag embellishment and a fussy cut hot air balloon, to decorate the layout.
And last but certainly not least, I included LOTS of journaling!
