Stamperia "Around the World" Layout ~ FotoBella DT

     Happy Friday! I'm back with another layout featuring this great photo of my late grandpa, and Stamperia's Around the World collection from

     These awesome papers were just screaming to be torn and distressed! Then I added some splashes with the Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil. For the first layer, I used Weathered Wood Distress Ink applied with my Blending Tool. Next came a coat of Prima Marketing's Clear Gesso for some dimension. And once that dried, I used my finger to smudge a little Tumbled Glass Distress Crayon from Set #5 without the stencil.

     The fish on top was fussy-cut, and inked around the edges with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, which I also used around half of the paper behind the photo. Then I gave it a coat of Ranger's Glossy Accents for that fresh out of the water look, and popped it up with some foam tape.

      Not wanting to hide the whale with my paper layers, I used an X-acto knife to cut him in half, and also gave him a coat of Glossy Accents.

     I wish I knew the story behind this photo, but was able to preserve my late grandma's handwriting on the back of the photo by printing it onto a torn piece of the cream paper colored along the bottom and right edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I love how closely it resembles the script in the background! I also added one of her buttons to the center of the Wooden Embellishment.

     Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful Father's Day Weekend!
