Senior picture layout

I decided to scan in a senior photo of my son and tried a photo filter called Poster.  Thought it was fun and printed to scrap it.

Doing this layout I came across a new technique that may be fun and useful to others.  I was using a tile from a company that was called my little black dress. I covered it with Tim Holtz Crackle paint Picket fence- spread it thinly with my finger then set it with a heat gun for the crackle.  I then spritzed it lightly with the Shimmerz Vibez (orange) and let dry. Then I went to apply a word rub on...but found that if I just rubbed on the letters with a round stylus it removed the paint below and left a negative space that spelled the word.  COOL- so I left it.

I have posted the supplies below the image. Thanks for looking.
