It seems there's a dare out there to mat a photo over a photo.... and I've actually seen it done this afternoon in an online gallery...
Shame it's not an original idea though - coz I made this layout:
For a Product Promo for Creative Scrapbooking at the begining of the year.... and posted it up on UKS and SP on the 1st April this year, which is quite a while ago now... eh?
Cool technique I admit - but not new - and it only came about by pure chance at all!
My editor asked me to send the image as a Jpeg to HiTi, who would print the photograph with writing on it, and send me a hard copy. Meanwhile would I make the LO as the deadline was looming and add the photo at the last minute before posting to them? So that's what I did - assuming the picture would come back as a 5x7 - however, it did not. The largest they could print with the writing on was a 4x6, and this was obviously far too small for the page I'd made.
Being the inventive scrapper that I am... (for inventive read seriously panicking!)... I played around a bit, and decided to mat the photo with the original bigger photo - and that was it.
That's how it came about...
So Er, now you know ;-)
