What I want to share today is a layout I finished prior to vacation and it is one that I love. This layout has quickly shot up on my list of faves for several reasons. First, it features my husband and he looks absolutely HAPPY in the photo. Now he is a generally happy person, but to capture that on camera is hard. He usually instantly freezes into Mr. Tough guy when he sees my camera, but this time I got him! Second, and this sounds incredibly lame, but I figured out how to make little chevrons out of triangles. Yes, it doesn't take much to thrill me!
Finally, the whole layout resulted from a new little design process that I tried.....Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed with deciding what I want to do or try out on a layout. I have ideas everywhere--written down, bookmarked, posted on Pinterest...So what I did this time, was I looked through some of it and made a short list of some techniques/design elements I wanted to incorporate. The list looked like this:
1. Big, bold burst of mist
2. Use a big banner horizontally
4. Vertical paper strips on side edges.
5. Journaling under photo-underline.
And here is the result:
So happy with the results!
P.S. Stewart is not the name of my husband, but the brand of his board!
