Well, so much for getting this layout posted last week… Just didn’t happen. But on the brighter side, I purposely didn’t plan anything for this past weekend — no dinner with friends, no dates, no drinks, and guess what? I was super productive! Amazing how that works. Not only did I finish the two layouts on my desk in progress, but I also got started on several more and brainstormed some future ideas.
While I am super happy with how my social life is shaping up these days…I still really need my down time too. I’m going to have to remember to give myself a weekend with no commitments every once in awhile. But I digress…on to the layout!
I finished another center layered layout and just thought I would snap a few photos in process to show how it comes together. Sometimes its hard to tell how many layers are there and how they all stack up. I know when I see some pages on Pinterest I really want to know, so I thought I would just share this one in case anyone else wonders like I do.
This base started out with thin pattern paper strips across the top and the bottom. I find that these strips help keep the focus and attention on the center of the page. Your eye isn’t as likely to go off the page with borders helping to contain the space.
Two blocks form the center foundation and the photo is added right away. All of the other layers will be tucked in around the photo.
3×4 journaling cards. These little cards are showing up on more of my layouts these days. I guess in a way, they have replaced other blocks of pattern paper. I have found that I don’t use as much pattern paper when I have fun cards to layer with. And since I have more 3×4 cards than I’ll ever be able to scrap, maybe that means I’ll buy less pattern paper???? Hmmmm….
The green “#AWESOME” came from a 3×4 card. I just trimmed it down to fit where I needed it. Same with the Rock Star quote. I just cut away the rest of the card so that I could get that round shape at the top. Now I’ve started to layer in a few other embellishments as well.
At this point I’m working out where the journaling and my title will go.
And once they were in place, I finished off page with a few stickers, cards, enamel dots and some twine. Super quick and easy.
Thanks for stopping by!
