Photo Booth Fun

If you've never been to ScrapFest, then you've missed the awesome canvas, painted by my friend Karen Ellis, that we use as a backdrop for our photo booth.  It's so much fun to snap a photo and give everyone a memento of their time at ScrapFest.

A few years ago, in Oshawa, Christy Riopel snapped a whole bunch of photos of Tara Thynne, Michelle Galloway and I, trying to get a good one.  I laughed so hard when I uploaded these photos! :)

Supplies used:  FabScraps patterned paper and chipboard (heart scroll, sign); Maya Road chipboard (banners, heart); Unity Stamp Co. stamp (Simple Vintage Box Memory), Stamp-It Australia (Travel Script) and Just Cre8 alpha stamps (Journaling ABC); Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink; DecoArt paint; Ranger Adirondack color wash; EK Success and Kreaxions punches; Basic Grey alpha stickers; Ranger Glossy Accents, Making Memories rhinestone brad; Stockade wooden butterfly; American Crafts pen; Scrapbook Adhesives foam adhesive; unknown half pearls and twine.  Photos by Christy Riopel.

The photos were edited using the B&W conversion and edge burn actions from The Pioneer Woman.  I had them printed as one strip photo, like a photo booth strip and mounted them on dimensional foam.  After cutting off the flourishes from the FabScraps chipboard piece, I painted them and stamped with a contrasting ink colour.  

The flowers are punched from patterned papers and rounded, using a mouse pad and embossing tool.

The wooden butterfly was also painted and stamped and added to a cluster in the corner of the journaling.

More painting and stamping on the Maya Road banners, then threaded with twine and tied to page.

Have you been to ScrapFest?  Hopefully I will meet some of you at the one in Oshawa in October!
