A few of my favourite things

Well "selfie" made it into the dictionary in 2013 and living in a house with a teenager, I can sure understand the how and the why of it.  My goodness the number of self portraits young people take is astounding! My daughter and I were going through her electronic devices looking at photos when I spied this one and thought that it would be great for a layout using the December inspiration mood board at Scrap Around the World.






Supplies: patterned paper (Simple Stories), glitter letters (American Crafts), molding paste (Golden), stencil (Silhouette cut), watercolour paints (Daler Rowney), jeweled lace (Prima), silver tissue and leaves (Dollarama), ink (Tsukinenko), corner rounder punch (EK Success), pen (CTMH), peacock feather swag (Lucky Brand Clothing)


I used molding paste, on worn old wood with silver and bluish green touches ...







... and some Lucky Brand Clothing packaging "peacock feather swag" (as my daughter refers to it).







What I was attracted to in the board was some fav elements of mine...  old wood and plaster frames (I have a collection of them), the aquamarine silver ring and the large feather in the ladies hand .

The perfect accompaniment to my daughter's filtered "selfie".


TTFN,

I hear you on kids and selfies - I wonder how many mine have? At least one a day, maybe I should force them to do a ProjectLife with them?

Beautiful layout - the huge pea cock feather really does it - very brave to use it like this!
