010407_a_bindi

January 11, 2008

OK I didn't want to stress that a bindi is for married women, because Grant thought his was so cool (all the kids got one, got to love political correctness), but I did sort of wonder if that point was made in their 3 week unit on India.

Supplies:
Patterned Paper – Denise Docherty, Connections
Fiber & staples – Shannon Freeman, Back 2 School kit
Paper edge – Brandy Murry, Inky Folded Borders1
Frame – Diane Miller Typo kit
Tag – Michelle Underwood, suggapie kit
Fonts: Stan Hand and Treefrog

Techniques:
This layout was created using PSE 5.0.
Large photo has a Linear Burn filter applied and opacity reduced to 62%.
The bindi on the large photo was cut out of the original photo (before filters were applied), sharpened digitally and then pasted over the top of the large photo to give it more definition.
