Use a photo for Try in on Tuesday

Hello Tuesday! Thanks for all the lovely comments recently... I have had a little spurt and been posting quite a bit, so I do appreciate all your visits. The grim virus left me no choice but to stay at home last week so I had a little extra crafting time. 

Here is my little creation for Try it on Tuesday for the latest challenge - to incorporate a photograph - any photograph - so for all you scrapbookers this is right up your street! Despite a lot of friends scrapbooking it is still something I haven't tried, so I made this little creation using some of Tim Holtz 'lost relatives' images.

I confess to being happy with my background ( lots of texture and dripping paint) but not overly happy with how I added my bits and pieces.

Thanks again for your visit and see you soon.
