mirror image (sketchabilities)

the new sketch is up at sketchabilities!

it's a multi-photo sketch and something that i haven't tried yet for my layouts.  it was great of karan changing things up a bit.  i really had fun doing this layout!  check out the layouts from the other dt's.

my attempt at self portrait photography.  stand in front of a mirror, steady yourself and start clicking away.  i felt stupid doing this but it was fun!

a few design notes:
-  remember my "hope" layout.  the lace cardstock used there as mask, i used this time as a background for the photos.  it's a good way to maximize my supply. i used black & white photos so it still complemented the design.
-  i used glimmer mist to add "texture" to the base paper. i am loving the use of glimmer mist on my layouts. i wish i can get all the colors. lol!
-  i flipped the title to reinforce the "reflection" theme

materials used:
lace cardstock - ki memories; patterned paper - scenic route, sassafras; paper frills - doodlebug design; chipboard - american crafts, junkitz; felt - american crafts, fancy pants; glimmer mist - tattered angels; ink - colorbox
