Like movie stars...

As promised, I am posting the close ups of the layout I finished like two weeks ago. It's a G45 LO which I used to submit to their DT call. Brave you say? Yes I am. :) Gotta keep trying  - my scrapbooking motto! :)  This was also based on the pagemaps sketch currently posted on becky's blog.

Here's the layout. Love how the title turned out - read more on the journaling to find out why it's titled this way. 
I've the die cut papers and I just had to try and find a way to use all of them. So I layered them all! Love how it turned out anyway. I remember having a hard time trying different spots to put them on and another hard time glueing them in place. :)

Here's the close up of the layers. Used pop dots here and there. If you notice the tearing on the script paper, those are done through masking tape. I stick it hard on the paper and pull it so the tear loos natural. 

Close up of the title. I also applied tarnished brass crackle on the ribbon and then an MM vintage clip to top it off. The photo mat was also punched using EK Success border punch. 

Lastly, here's the journaling portion. The background paper was cut on the square marks and I rolled the squares in between to give that effect. The base flower was also pure white, I sprayed it with glimmer mist mixed with water and stamped a Hero Arts script stamp with Staz on. There was also a pin attached between the flowers which I created using my bead stuff. 

Journaling: That's what it felt like on our pre-nup shoot. Posing, smiling, acting! It was tiring! :)
