Here is a layout i did this weekend for the One Little Word challenge - "Strong"
This actually turned out really pretty - usually i don't do "pretty" stuff, but, ya, this one is!
Hard to capture it with a picture since i used so much transparency that glares really bad. :(

Here we be:

Photos are from May from a 366 photo shoot i did. I printed the main one out on transparency as well as put the smaller ones in a fake filmstrip megative and printed on transparency. The background paper is from Basic Grey.

The journaling is pretty personal. Don't try and understand it, i guess. But i put down masking tape and wrote on that. The tape is not quite opaque so you can see a little of the paper behind it. Plus ut adds some dimension and texture.

Of course, I had to use the fact I was using transparency to put stuff behind it. i layered ribbon and tulle behind and over it. Really cool effect. and since it made the transparency not lay flat on the paper it also made it look more like a window!

I tore the bottom of the paper to add some dimension and make it more interesting. the other 3 sides were actually black duct taped then put some of the green bubble masking tape i got at the SiSiversary over it. Love that stuff!!!! I also, again, experimented with using staples. I like using tape and staples - i think it's something everyone can identify with....

Love felt ribbon.
This is one of the prettiest things i've ever committed to paper :D

Showing more layer and texture. Duct tape, masking tape, tulle, staples, transparency - DELICIOUS!!! :)
