In Triplicate

The photo for this layout was taken years ago with a film camera. When I picked it up form the processor I realised the film must not have wound on properly, but it makes for an interesting photograph. I love that he has a slightly different expression on each exposure. I think my son was about 5-6 years old when the photo was taken.

For this layout I cut a piece of cardboard to 12" x 12" and roughly painted the majority of it wiht red acrylic paint. I then sprayed it with gold glimmer mist and let it all dry. After this I used a Creative Expressions - Metal Effect Mask and sprayed through it with Slate Glimmer Mist.

I inked up a Bo Bunny Cogsmo journalling card with Ranger Distress Inks - Tea Dye and Fired Brick and let this dry too. I distressed the edge of my photograph and adhered it to the layout along with the cogsmo journalling tag and some old tickets. I added a MME journalling tag which I had distressed with white gesso.

I finally added the title using Sassafras Lass monstrosity alpha, stamped the robot stamp three times so each was lighter than the next (as a reference to the photograph) and added the Cogsmo black chipboard.
