2nd Prima Fruggal Scrapper LO- Hurt



Here's the 2nd LO I made for the Prima Frugal Scrapper LO Challenge, entitled Hurt. I used a Prima Dreamer Clear Stamps paper packaging, plus it's transparent plastic window and the 2 plastic fasteners. I made some sort of frame with the paper packaging but I hand-torn a square hole in the middle of it. I cut the transparent window into a square, used alcohol inks to color the sides then stamped on it. The alcohol ink I used was Stream, almost the exact shade of the Prima Flirty Little Secret Frock pp which I made as the base. I adhered the photo with double-sided tape behind the handmade transparency. Then I hand-torn another square hole on the Frock pp. This is why the photo looks like it floats on the transparency. To finish it off, I distressed the edges of the pp by rolling and hand-tearing the edges, then rubbed walnut ink all around the sides. For the alphas, I used Prima Rue 88 but I covered it with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Aged Mahogany.

I must say that I like this one even better than the 1st entry. Of course, I had my doubts when I was just starting, especially when I couldn't stretch the Dreamer packaging enough to make almost 12x12. Also, I already alchol-inked and stamped on the handmade transparency before I realized I could actually adhere it onto a similar Prima pp (Thank you, Iris!)

Journal reads: When you're hurt, I am hurt; when you're sick, I feel sick. You feel it in your body. I feel it in my heart. You are a part of me that needs to heal.
