Technique Tuesday with Jennifer Longenecker

Today I've got a LO how-to that I am going to share with you.

Gather your supplies:
Basic Grey Ambrosia Stickers
Pink Paislee Fascinating Entrhalling PP
Pink Paislee Enchanting Sticker Book Alpha Stickers
Pink Paislee Captivating Alphabet Stickers
Prima Flowers Bonnet Bloom
Orange Scallop Velvet Trim
Creative Imaginations Flower Brad
Basic Grey Buttons
White Tissue Paper

1. Cut your trim to match the length and width of your photo. You'll need two pieces that match the width and two that match the length.

2. Glue the trim to the back of the photo so that about half of the trim is still visible from the front.

3. Determine the position for your photo and then glue your tissue accordion style so that it will mat your picture.

4. Adhere your photo over the tissue paper mat making sure it mats the left side of your photo.
5. Add the first word of your title to the bottom left hand corner of your photo.

6. Using your scissors make small slits in the tissue paper mat to create a fringe around the photo.
7. Add the second word of your title just below the bottom left hand corner of your photo making sure that your first word fits inside the width of your second word. Add a small button to the right of your first word.
8. Add a Prima Bonnet Blossom to the bottom right hand corner of your photo. Add the orange Ambrosia swirl behind the flower making sure to allow part of the swirl to rest on top of your flower. Add a button to the swirl.
9. Distress the edges of your LO. Use the reveal technique near to top right hand side of your LO. As you are distressing, make a larger tear near the top right. Find a piece of coordinating scrap paper and add a rubon to the edge. Distress the edge of your scrap and adhere to the back of your LO so that it shows through the tear you created earlier.
10. Add a flower brad to the middle of the tear and fold back the sides of the tear.
11. Place your journaling above the right hand side of your photo. Add a button to the bottom left hand side of your journaling.
