Paired-up project: picture inspiration

Hi there! It’s Eva and Agata here to share with you our work. We’ve decided to take some inspiration from a picture. Here it is:

It seems that both Eva and I we were inspired by it in the same way: the overall design. Here are our versions:

Eva turned it into a 12 x 12 layout and still kept a large picture on the top with text underneath. She used the Neighborhoods and Graphic Borders sets to make the border for pictures and Just Add Notes set to do the little circle accent. For the plane trail, she stamped repeatedly the phrase from the Neighborhoods set. Here are some details:

I loved the clean style of the picture, it went great for the layout I had in mind about my son and the way he says how old he is. I also used a picture showing just a part of the body, in this case the upper part of my son. :) Here are some close-ups:

The title was stamped directly on picture with Staz’On ink and  Summer Alpha set.

For the border I used the fine stitching stamp from the new set Repeat after Me. It’s perfect for bending and making shapes with it!

Hopefully this picture will inspire you to make a project. Please be sure to share it with us! Happy scrapping!
