Week 8 Scrap Factor: Movie Night

The Scrap Factor challenge for Week 8 was to use film or TV for inspiration. The iconic 'TV' shot for me is the BBC test screen:
so I decided to use that as a basis for my LO this week. Back in September whilst I was doing Shimelle's 'Learn Something New Every day' class I took some photos of Connor to illustrate the lesson I'd learnt ('Sunday nights have become movie night without me noticing. I love the change to cuddle up') and made a layout using some of them, but I never liked it. I don't often do it, but this week I decided to start again and use the movie night photos and create a new LO.

The technique I wanted to focus on was using mist and a mask to highlight an area that I've seen on a few layouts recently and liked. Using the test screen as my inspiration I decided to go with a circle focal point. I layered papers, ribbons and burlap on the page before using a bowl to mask out a circle and misting around the edges. I used my sewing machine to stitch circles around the area to really highlight it too.
