The Great Outdoors photo display for Xyron and Paper House


Great-outdoor-photo-display
This whole week, the team at Xyron is joining the folks at Paper House Productions for a fabulous creative blog hop. I made a 6x6 photo display featuring my sister walking her "pet" at an African Safari...*winks*. Read on for a quick tutorial.
I started by cutting a piece of cardboard to 6x6 and running it through the Xyron 9" Creative Station for an even application of adhesive. Then I adhered the Paper House Productions patterned paper (The Great Outdoors mini paper pad) to the cardboard and distressed the edges for some texture.
The photo was fussy-cut and adhered to the base with the Teresa Collins Mega Runner. A graphite pencil was used to outline the silhouette and blended with a tortillion. This helped to create the illusion of depth.

I fussy-cut another piece of the same photo and propped it up with 3D foam dots. Then I decorated with Paper House Productions The Great Outdoors dimensional stickers. I also fussy-cut some elements from another sheet of patterned paper and adhered to the base with Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive.

Then I pulled the elements together by painting the "scene" with Silks Acrylic Glazes.
