Cool dudes and groovy gals we were...except for one little detail. Evidently, we had not seen a peace sign in quite a while, and no one corrected me when I accidentally stenciled Mercedes Benz symbols on all of the shirts! Too funny. When one of the kids caught a peace sign button at the parade that day, and I compared it to the shirts, only then did we realize the mistake. We laughed so hard, and now I have a pile of shirts that need another spoke of blue!
Inspired by the quintessential 70's bead curtain, I created a paper chain to embellish the left hand side of the page. It was a great use for all those leftover bit and pieces of patterned paper. And I could make use of both the fronts AND the backs of my favorite designs.
A little snippet of banner was hung beneath my photo. These are from a pack of various banner shapes by Heidi Swapp called Color Magic Resist. Each one can be custom colored to match any project. I simply rubbed a little Tim Holtz distress ink with my fingertip onto the all-white banner and the resist portion of the paper remained white, revealing the design underneath the color. So cool!
Do you remember the last Mardi Gras photo that I scrapped? It's hard to believe that I used the same kit, with the two very different looks achieved. Gotta love the versatility of these papers!
