I decided to take a slightly different approach than my original plan (using wedding pictures...), and make a page about my favourite band. Something I've been planning to do for a long time.
The photo was taken by me at a Metallica-concert in 2015.
The papers are mainly from 7 Dots Studio. I first sketched a big heart, then glued strips of old bookpages, and finally used my sewing machine.
I added some clear gesso to the page, before using a pencil + water to create som shade around the heart.
Distress Oxide + water to add some blue color, and then lots of stamping, using stamps from Carabelle and Prima.
The stars are made with metallic tape and embossing folders.
Layers of paper behind the photo, combined with chipboard from SnipArt, punchinella, and die cuts from Sizzix.
The word 'forever' is a Dymo strip, and 'Rock!' is created the same way as the stars, using a die from Spellbinders.
The last embellishments are actual picks and buttons from Metallica, and the bracelet from the concert.
I had so much fun making this page. And since I'm also going to their show in Krakow in April, there might be new photos to use...
My first page this year, and the current challenge at Mixed Media Place really got me inspired.
I decided to go with the winter images, and use a photo of my girls playing in the snow. They were so happy when we finally got some snow this winter.
Originally, I wanted to use blue/green colors, but somehow I ended up with pink. That just went better with the photo.
Papers are from 7 Dots Studio, Northern Lights collection.
I first used mesh and tissue tape, then covered the bakground with a thin layer of gesso.
When it was dry, I added Distress Oxide mixed with water. And then lots of random stamping, using stamps from Prima and Stampendeous.
Lots of layers behind the photo, including some glitter thread.
The title is a die from Altenew, and I cut it in black foam.
The gorgeous border of snowflakes is a chipboard from Snip Art.
Finally I added splatters and some sequins. The page is really sparkling, but that is difficult to show in the photos :-)

Sistnevnte er vel hovedgrunnen for at jeg rotet meg borti scrapping. Og dermed må de også ta hovedansvaret for at jeg bruker aaaaaltfor mye tid og penger på denne altoppslukende hobbyen....
