I am using paper from the Dapper Paper Stash (don't you love the rulers?) I chose an Instagram picture we took at the Remnants of the Past Antique Show, that matched the browns and blues of the Dapper paper line.
The grey/blue ticking paper is a nice break from the tape measures. It also gives me a smaller working area (which I wanted) yet still allows the tape measure paper to shine.
Just a few words on the Cameo Frame...I colored the metal frame with a combo of Weathered Wood Distress Paint and Gold Alcohol Ink to tie it back to the glittery Deco Tape. I used the Tim Holtz Oval Punch to punch a piece of Dapper paper for the center and added the words from an old book (because that just makes me happy). You might notice there is a bit of sparkle on the oval. I did that by adding a small amount of Mercury Glass Stickles Glitter Glue to the paper, THEN adding the epoxy over the top (the epoxy comes with the Cameo Frame). When pressed into place, the epoxy disperses the Stickles creating this fun embellishment (don't tell anyone how easy it was to make).
I also added the some of the new Design Tape and Fastener to the top of the paper.
