Get It Scrapped: Layering a Photo

I print my photos at home. Sometimes, I print one twice. Perhaps it was too dark the first time. Or maybe I want to make an everyday plain shot look a little special. That was the case with a photo of my cat in the laundry basket.

Laundry Basket Rides: Free to Cute Cats by Christy Strickler |Supplies Patterned Paper, Letters: American Crafts; Brads: American Crafts, Making Memories; Badge, Bow: Freckled Fawn; Wood Veneer: Prima

This particular photo wasn't taken in the best light. Despite photo editing with rad labs, I considered not using it. However, I really liked it. My cat is just so cute! To make the plain photo more interesting, I printed it twice, fussy cut Jujubee's image from one print and then layered it over the original. I used chipboard as a spacer between the two cat images. The chipboard helps the image retain it's shape while raising the image. 

In March, I was a guest teacher for Get It Scrapped photoplay e-zine. I shared some of my techniques, but I also learned quite a lot from my fellow instructors. I hope to incorporate more photo play ideas into my layouts.Do you play with your photos? Share some of your creative photo play with us in the Get It Scrapped Gallery.
