Hike 2 Hollywood
Journaling says: When my parents came to visit in January of 2012 of course we had to hike to the Hollywood sign. The very next day some man's decapitated head was found on the same trail.... (Yes, I realize the journaling is morbid and doesn't quite fit the feel of the layout, but I want to remember this weird story!)
How to: I altered a frames die I downloaded from Silhouette so it wasn't as detailed and then cut it from white cardstock. I backed each of the frames with a photo or patterned paper/vellum. After gluing the finished frames piece to a cloud vellum paper background, I added some embellishments to the edges and then straight and zigzag stitched around the border. Next I wrote journaling with a black pen in one of the frames, add a title using letter stickers, Thickers, and a "2" fabric brad, all on a tearaway strip.
