All of the pictures have black backgrounds with either brown or cream colored frames. Gotta Wear Shades was cut at 3/4 inches using the Shadow feature on the Platin SchoolBook Cartridge. I could not cut that small without using the Shadow feature. Too much tearing of the letters on the mat. The shades were cut at 3/4" and 1/2" (square shades) using Paper Dolls Teen Scene on page 56 and (girly shades) Forever Young cartridge from page 47. The lens's were cut a 1/4 inch smaller to fit the frames better.
The banner was cut from the Artiste cartridge on page 66 on kraft paper. I then used my Festive Berries Distress Stain to color the banner. Only took a minute or two to dry. I used pop dots on the banner and all of the shades on the LO to add height.
I added song lyrics about sunglasses to both layouts for fun.
I backed the song lyrics with black paper.
I inked "Gotta Wear Shades" with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to help stand out.
You now can see the pop dotted sunglasses fron this angle.
I hope you like my LO and Thanks for stopping by.
