When I got the Studio Calico July kit “Documentary”, I knew I will use it to scrap my favorite photo. I just love the colors, the patterns and it’s great for a travel photo. So I printed my photo a bit larger than usual – 5×7 – so it will be a strong focal point.

This photo was taken in PreRup, one of the temples in the Angkor region of Cambodia. It was already our third day and we have become more comfortable with our guide Sophal so we were game for some cheesy shots. I love the texture of the wall behind us and I love that we were looking at each other. I experimented a bit with some actions and I love how it turned out.

I used a light blue cardstock – I thought it matches our jeans. I distressed the edges of all papers with ink so they don’t look flat.

For the flowers, I inserted some foam adhesives under the petals. Then I adhered the center and the petal tips on the paper.

I just love the stamp that came with the kit. I also love those perforated tickets. I made a little ATC here which I used to embellish the page. The camera and the stamp stamp (get it?) emphasized the travel theme. The little ticket I used on the ATC was sprayed with water, crumpled, straightened out and inked.

I also distressed the flowers with ink. I added a few more stamping (from October afternoon) and more perforated tickets. Can you see the fabrips across the paper just below the photo? I love the fab rips!

Thanks for looking!
