Fun with Trail Mix by Bo Bunny

What do they call it? In the nick of time, right? Well, this one is!

The challenge was to create a layout with banners on it. Right from the start I knew I wanted to use Trail Mix for that one, as that collection has a lot of different colours that still match. 

But what picture to use? 

Then my eyes fell on the latest school picture. The last one of me and Duncan. Next year he'll be in school himself and won't be able to join me at the school where I work. So there's a bit of joy as well as melancholy to this picture.

I started with putting texture paste on the paper. When that dried, distress ink came next. 

Next was distressing al the edges. It always makes me sneeze, what with all the paper dust flying around. 

Putting everything together was a challenge in itself, because I had to keep lifting edges and corners to put all the other papers up and under eachother.

My trusty Silhouette Cameo took care of the title.

Now I have 40 minutes to turn this in.

I can do this. Even though the photo's have been shot with my phone...


I did it.

Thanks for looking!
