Be Amazing - Be You! TPV Zipper Gluber Tutorial

It seems like it's been forever since I took on a My Mind's Eye Challenge. So, since I had a scrappy night with girlfriends, I decided to go for it. Here is Anam Stubbington's awesome sketch...
and here is my take on it, using my favorite Senior photo of my son that I took last fall and the My Mind's Eye Be Amazing collection. I LOVE this paper collection!! It was perfect for senior pics.
I cut apart the hexagon paper and ran it through my computer printer to add some journaling. I added some foam tape under some pieces to give it more dimension.
The zipper embellishment I made from an old zipper I removed from my son's favorite shorts. I had put a new zipper in his shorts and had a lightbulb moment about what to do with the old zipper. It's the perfect guy embellishment.
I prepared this tutorial for The Paper Variety on how I made it.
The zipper I used was probably 30" long.

Let me know what you think. I love to read your comments :)
