into the light details

I love to distress photos, and I use a hardware store style sanding block for all the edges. I then took the corner of the blovk, and used it to scratch-distress the surface of the photo, all around the image of my son. I love how this brings focus onto him, and emphasizes the rough and tumble personality he sometimes exhibits. I have discovered my love for these tiny alphabet font stickers! I am anot abig fan of my own handwriting sometimes, and these are a perfect solution! These are from Carolee's Adorn It, and I have used Pink Paislee, and other manufacturers with just as much success!
This close-up shows my fussy-cut clouds, and the new polka-dotted American Crafts thickers, which coordinated well with my background patterned paper with a faded black and white focus!

  2. Amazing photo! I love to "spoil" my photos too, lol. I personally feel that my pic looks naked without me stitching its border or distress or whatever. Do you have other suggestions Roberta?
