Admiring You Is So Easy

I can't believe how out of my element was to make this layout. It is not even similar to anything I've designed before. As a background I used 7 Gypsies paper which was torn and inked in Tim Holtz "red brick" distress ink. Then I used a brick template by "The Crafter's Workshop" and inked it in red to get the brick effect to match the picture. I used the brick effect as an element for a challenge at Challenge Me Happy. It's the first challenge of this cool new blog. They gave us a picture as an inspiration and we had to pick an element that we liked from the picture and scrapbook it. I love challenges because they make me a better scrapper and help me come out of my element and try new things.
On this layout I also used a lot of metal embellishments. I actually went through my stash and took out everything that matched the layout. Under the picture I used a metal mesh from "Memory Makers" as a mat.
For the title I used the word "Admiring" which is the new word challenge for Bird is the Word . The page is busy but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!!
