Spin Me Around

Another playful layout that I made yesterday, I took these photos on new years eve, Paul and I were having a dance (no we weren't drunk) and even though the photos are a little blurry, I love them. I decided to try and create a disco effect and I found this transparent patterned disc with a hole in the centre which I thought was perfect as a mirrorball, although I'm not sure what it was supposed to be in a previous life.
I started with four pieces of American Crafts paper, using the reverse of one for my base I tore strips of  two roughly the same width using a ruler and distressed the edges. I stuck each strip down from the centre of the page outward leaving the ends hanging off the page and then cut around the edge of the page. I then cut a 2inch circle from the black reverse to cover the mess in the centre of the page but before sticking it down I threaded the transparent disc onto a large brad with the black disc. I stuck the black disc down to leave the transparent disc to spin.
Again using the final piece of paper I used the patterned side, which was large spots, I used my circle punch to leave a border around each of the coloured spots and layered them on pop dots, some with more of the large brads on too. I also stuck the title and an arrow onto the disc and used rub-ons on one of the dots.


  1. Ooh, cool layout! I love the spinner idea, with all the spots. The torn paper "rays" are really good too.
