Me in Grade 12

I found this photo taken of me in Grade 12 in old photos of my Mum & Dads. I can't believe this was 47 years ago, how the heck did I get so old, lol. I used Prima's "Rose Quartz" paper collection for this layout. For the background paper I used the black side of one of the papers. I used one of my flower stencils and used my modeling paste to stencil flowers on different areas of the background paper. I then took some white paint that I had watered down and did all sorts of paint splats onto the background paper and then heat set everything.
 One of the cool thing about this Prima paper collection is that the top strip of each paper that you usually cut off is printed with one of  each of the paper designs from the collection. I took a number of these strips and tore a little bit off of one side of each strip and then took those and laid them beside each other vertically towards the top of the background paper as shown below.
I then cut out different size rectangles from the different papers from this collection and laid them out until I liked the design. I distressed all of the papers for the layout. On the top edge of the background paper I made a small tear and rolled the edges back. I added another piece of the paper and added it to the back of the tear and then added a small rosebud in the tear. I fussy cut some roses and feathers from the different papers and added them to the layout. I popped the roses up with foam dots. I added some cardboard to the back of the photo and added that to the layout. After I added the photo I added some pink Prima flowers and leaves from my stash. I added two stick pins that I made (and sell on my website and/or Facebook page).
Here's the finished layout, I'd love to hear your comments!
