How To Make a Statement With Beautiful Metallic Frames

Today I am sharing this one page layout that makes a statement with beautiful metallic frames. Last summer I spent a few days in Tacoma with a dear friend. We enjoyed an idyllic morning at Point Defiance Park. These photos are from the Japanese Garden.

The frames are made from Rinea Foiled Paper in Copper Glossy. I used the Metallics Variety Pack but it also comes on a roll.
For the detailed points I used a fancy frame die and cut the corners off at a diagonal. The foiled paper takes the dry embossing in such exquisite detail.
 For the third photo I used a thinner frame from the same die set.
 The sketch I used had lovely groupings at the corners. I choose wood veneer leaves and chipboard cameras for my layers. ScraPerfect glue is the ideal answer for attaching wood veneer. It only takes a drop or two of the Best Glue Ever and holds securely. The No-Clog Writing Cap makes the drops super easy to place.
This 3-photo layout is my entry for Stuck Sketches June 1st Challenge. Here is the sketch by Laura Whitaker:
