Round 1 Scrap-eography

1. Hand cutting of pp designs
2. Edge Distressing
3. Layering
4. Use of white/negative space
5. Texture
6. Non-standard size photos (not 4x6, 5x7 etc)
7. Clustering

That's all fine but I needed a photo first. I am not one of these lucky people who can put together a layout - then find a photo to fit. Flicking through the 5,000 or so on my computer I found this one taken of Emily at Sovereign Hill a couple of years ago - just before she started high school and all the problems that went with that. I love the look of concentration as she tried to use the manual potters wheel. I often went there when I was at school and always had to be dragged away from the pottery - no surprise to my family when I did ceramics as part of my VCE art course. Finally at 1.30 this morning it was finished. Doesn't help when you get called out to look at things of TV every 5 minutes!
