I took this shot at a very unusual event last summer. It was a head shaving party for my 16 year old daughter’s best friend. Victoria was diagnosed with cancer and though her prognosis was favourable she would have to undergo treatments and that would mean she could lose her hair. Now as an adult it is easy to say, “Better her hair then her life”, but to a teenage girl it must have been horrifying.
SUPPLIES: Stampin’ Up! patterned paper, ink, stamps, pen and adhesives.
Not her though, she took charge of the situation and threw a party, and shaved her head. Her courage was amazing and inspiring and this photo was so special to me. It required just the right paper that showed the strength of her heart and the beauty of her face. Using Stampin’ Up! paper and stamps I was able to make a custom paper that I think fits this page perfectly.
To create the background I used Stampin’ Up! Craft ink, Patterned paper and stamps.
When stamping the flowers I placed them in a wave pattern leaving some of the paper without the flowers revealing the back ground print.
Next time you are looking for just the right print, reach for your stamps and customize one just for your page.
PS – I am happy to report that Victoria is in full remission and recovering very well. She never let Cancer get her down. To hear more of her story and follow her recovery you can find her on Twitter @CuzIBeatCancer.
