To start with though, I have to say I really love the bicycle themed paper in the Baggage Claim collection and decided to use it to create a layout about me for a change!
The first step was to die cut and emboss the paper, then sand the edges to reveal the white core before adhering it to a sheet of paper from the Dusty Road collections. Next I layered on the photos and created this little embellishment cluster - this red became the perfect accent color against all the blue tones in the layout.
I used the Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalking Ink to stamp onto 2 different colors of cardstock. I heat embossed using clear embossing powder then stacked them together before adding sticker and chipboard embellishments.
|The bicycle chipboard is from the Baggage Claim collection, but the words are from the Dusty Road Sticker sheet.|
I must admit to being a bit of a washi collector so I was thrilled to use 3 or 4 different tapes on this layout.
Designer's Tip: When I am done with a layout and something seems "off", the first thing I do is check for a visual triangle. One of the easiest ways to define a visual triangle is with color, as I did on this page.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
