  Note: When choosing pen colors and papers for your project, look for colors and styles that complement the photograph and/or theme.
1. Cut the gray cardstock the same height as your photograph and twice the width.
2. Using a ruler draw 3 or 4 thick lines along one short edge of the cardstock with the silver marker. Trim this edge with the deckle scissors.
3. To create the flower border, use the green Silver Shadow pen to doodle the leaves for the flowers. Use the red Silver Shadow pen to doodle swirls for the flower.
4. Write the title with the fine tip marker on to the 1” wide strip of black cardstock then doodle a flower at each end.
5. With the title at the center, trim the strip to 7” in length.
Referring to the photograph, assemble as follows:
1. Adhere the photograph to gray mat with the silver edge. Draw a silver border along the opposite side of the photo then trim to desired width. (1/8” shown here.)
2. Add narrow strips to the right side of the page and the title across the bottom.
3. Adhere the matted photograph and silver photo corner accents.
Use gold shadow pens on khaki colored paper for gold accents. The title was printed on a computer then traced over with the green gold shadow pen.
