Print a small black and white photo. Trim photo to 2 1/2"x 2 1/2". Use scissors to cut photo in half diagonally. Arrange photo and triangular pieces on a white
cardstock background, adhere down with adhesive. Flick drops of black ink across the page. Use a sewing machine and white thread to stitch down pieces. Tear strips of washi tape and adhere to layout. Adhere tag and string to left hand side of page and use a stapler to staple down. Adhere a piece of white string to top right hand side of page, adhere with a paperclip and staple down. Add metal rimmed tag to page. Add date and phrase stamp to both tags. Finish by adding stickers and enamel dots to page.
