Scrapping an oversize photo

doesn't have to be scary. And using a 5x7 was an after thought on this page.

I decided to break out my MME 6x6 pad and circle scissors. Before I played with the circle scissors I used some gold paint and a background stamp just because I could.

Then I made some circles.

As I was playing around I also used the negative space of the circles from the 6x6 sheet which looked ok.

It looked okay until you tried to put a photo on top and then it had this dorky quality. Because of the way the papers were layered, a smaller photo made all those edges stand out. Which made me crazy.

Short trip.

So while I was digging about in the wayback box I found a 5x7 post card that when I threw it top of the paper - it worked. Like shazam worked.

Therefore a trip to my oversized pictures wayback box (say that 3x's fast) and found this gem.

My great grandparents. I think this is their 50th anniversary photo and if it is they look mighty fine for 67 and 69 years of age. Or the photographer was a photoshop genius back in the day. I did know grandmom and enjoyed her company but grandpop passed when I was 2. Therefore, if this is their 50th, he only lived 2 more years after.

Of course I was stumped for a title until my pal April - who can whip out a title in 2 seconds, said to keep it simple; Great grands. And it was totally the way to go.

MME, bazzil, TH die, primas, studio calico wood veneers, thickers, crafts art paint.
