Here is a layout I did for Paperclipping Monthly Challenge. We had several topics we could choose from and I went with using fabric on your layout. The journaling says it all so if you want to read it then just click on the image. I warn you, the file is large.
I sprayed the corners with black paint to give the effect of the subject being in the spotlight. And to add interest, I also added pieces of DH's shirt that had to be cut off the grinder and his arm.
