Foodie love

This is my final final layout for my Europe trip!! Found these photos of food that we took in London (it's such a Singaporean thing, taking photos of your food, but somehow I can't resist) and decided to use them to scrap a layout for 2 challenges going on right now! One for frosted design (which is a sketch challenge, where I took the sketch n turned it 90 degrees, or is it 270 degrees) and the other one is for moments recorded (which is a theme challenge with the theme of love!)

I took somewhat longer than usual to. create this layout by first stamping and embossing on the top part of the paper before misting over my entire sheet while masking off blocks for my photos. Added some hand drawn stitches (note to self: must learn how to use the sewing machine I stole from my mum soon!!) and adhered the photos with washi tape, added little embellishment clusters at the corners of the photos, some journalling on a tag, my title, and I'm all done!

I love the effect of misting over embossed images, but am always so impatient that I end up over-melting my embossed images cos I use the heat gun to dry my misting!

Anyhoo, here's the layout!

love how you created your own pattern paper =) i am always hesitate in using embossing powder at home cos it;s very messy, Maybe i should consider getting the heat gun & embossing powder soon!
