Selfies with...

I had quite a few left over bits and bobs and snippets from my Counterfeit Kit from July.  Strips of paper, random shapes, tiny rectangles... I cut them up to around 3cm long strips and separated them in to two piles.

Then I cut my 12x12 in to four pieces.  I removed the smallest piece and re-spaced the remaining three to give my 12x12 with a couple of small gaps - those gaps were to be filled with snippets!

I pondered putting them in the same order top and bottom but in the end just went with a randomness of colours.  I raised the middle panel up on foam dots to give some dimension and a lovely shadow line.

I popped the photos on foam squares too, and finished off with a multi coloured title.

I've just spotted my eye is missing a tittle - I will have to add that on before I file the layout away!  There is always a chance that it is stuck to my elbow or calf... you crafters know what wandering stickers are like...
