White With 1 - washi and polka dots!

Over at White with 1 the challenge is to scrap a page using white + polka dots + tape.

I've made this LO of my Grandfather...

The backing is a 12 x 12 sheet of acetate.  I love the idea of using acetate.  It turns out that photographing it is not so easy.  I have taken some against a white wall and some with a sheet of black behind.

Gramps was a pilot and the photo was taken in his plane so I thought I'd run with the idea of clouds.

I hand embossed some white paper with a freebie embossing folder - must get a machine some time! - and used it to double mat my photo and make some polka dot-ted cloud shapes... 

I used my cloud and heart washi tape at the bottom of the page and a tiny piece at the top.

Then started work on my journalling tag...

Again I used acetate, it's a three layer tag. 

I never have a problem finding ribbon to match due to my extensive collection but this time I just couldn't find 'it' - the right colour or thickness.  In the end, with the help of another pair of hands, I covered some thin cord with some of the washi tape.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this LO.  I'm off to enter it at WW1 and check out the other layouts...
