When I first saw this sketch over at Scrap Our Stash, I was drawn to all the various strips of paper weaved behind the photo. I have been trying to use more scraps lately so this layout was perfect to dig through some scraps to find some to use. I also changed the picture size to work with my 4x6 photo. This change also meant that I cut all my strips wider than the sketch and also over lapped the patterned paper pieces more. After adding a few clusters of sequins I realized that I had the start of a circle, so I ended up with a large rough circle of sequins around my photo, which I just love.
For the bingo part of the challenge I ended up going with the second row on the board which includes: Brad, Doily, Circles, Sequins & Burlap. Those items seem to account for the majority of my embellishments, which really worked for me on this page.
