Colorful Camera Creation

Project done: 2 June 2020
Photograph taken: 14 September 2015
Photographer: Marthani Martins (So Kreatief)
Location: Kathu – Sishen Golf Course, Northern Cape, South Africa

I made a camera from scrapbook paper with a photograph of myself, holding my camera, in the middle.

This project was inspired by MINTAY PAPERS INSPO PLACE iNSD Challenge 11 – Julia Nowakowska’s challenge to create an unusual shaped composition with fussy cut elements.

I used Mintay Lovely Day. I used the shape of a camera, a photograph of myself with my camera and some silver glitter paper.

I used distress ink on the edges of all the elements and I used dimensional foam to lift the different parts.

I added fussy cut cameras from Mintay Paradise and fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Flora Book.

I used gauze and foam squared at the backs of the fussy cut elements and added fabric flowers, glitter, diamantés and sequin flowers to the creation.

This project was so much fun to do!

I finished the look off with a ribbon from Celebr8’s Photobooth collection and some stickers from my stash to create the illusion of camera buttons.
