Whimsical Layered Photo

By:

Photo craft projects make the absolute best gifts. You don't have to spend a bundle to create your own Whimsical Layered Photo from Candace Jedrowicz, but the final product is sure to make a huge statement and turn into a cherished keepsake.


 

Materials:

  • Printed photo of anything – I used a photo I took of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas
  • Digital camera
  • Card stick (to print on)
  • The ability to re-size a digital photo
  • Scissors
  • Pop dots
  • Aleene’s Tacky Tape Runner
  • Aleene’s Tacky Glue Pen
  • Glitter

Instructions:

  1. Using your printed photo as a guide, take photos of family members in positions that will work well with your subject.  Since the Luxor Hotel has giant sphinx in front of a pyramid, I had the kids wear an Egyptian headdress and pose as though they were riding the sphinx, holding his beard and leaning against him.
     
  2. Upload the posed photos.  Take measurements for where you want your figures to fit in the photo and re-size them.
     
  3. Print as many photos of the original photos as you need to make your layers.  I needed a layer for the sphinx and one for the pyramid, so I could put a little one riding the sphinx.  I was able to cut out the sphinx’s face from the first layer, so I didn’t need a whole additional print.
     
  4. Print, cut out your figures and arrange them in the layers.
     
  5. Add pop dots to areas that will stand out and secure the layers together with Tacky Tape.
     
  6. Use the glue pen and glitter for highlights.
