Blast From the Past!

Jen here and it's my 20th high school reunion this weekend (and my 38th birthday;) and I thought as a tribute to those good times, I'd create a layout with my senior portrait from *gasp* 1992!
 My graduating class started posting photos from our time in high school on our Facebook page and I went digging for "old" photos... I found lots of fun and memorable ones.  There was no Facebook or email then... I guess it was a simpler time.  Can you imagine what we would have done with that technology?

This layout was fun to make!  I started with a woodgrain paper and added VersaMark ink through some punchinella and added WOW!  Bright white powder to it.  I love this powder... it's so opaque and bright!
 Next, I stamped a Basically Bare chipboard frame with VersaMark and used Bronze Metallic on it.  I added some more VersaMark and mixed Cotton Candy and Earthtone Olive to create a patina look to the frame.


 Underneath that fun frame, I layered a canvas page from Basically Bare's Oh So Mini albums!  I used a Donna Downey flower stencil with VersaMark and added Bubble Gum to it.  It's a bit tricky to emboss on canvas but it can be done... make sure you wipe it with an anti-static powder (I used ScraPerfect pouch on it).  I really used a lot of VersaMark too! It picks up the texture of canvas!


  I needed a bit more bling around the flowers so I used VersaMark again over the flowers and then pressed them into a pile of Angel Wings Embossing Glitter.  WOW!  This stuff is gorgeous!  Sparkle galore!


 I hope you enjoyed my blast from the past page!  I can't believe it's been 20 years since high school but I can't wait to catch up with my old friends (okay we aren't THAT old!)...
