Life Is Good…
Hello! Lisa here today to share another fun layout created with the newest Pink Fresh Studios Products… I can’t get enough! This collection just makes me so happy! I have noticed that some of the papers in collection can be a bit busy, so I thought I’d offer some tips and tricks of how to keep the focus on your photos no matter how busy your paper may be. When I first saw the Love Everywhere/Circles Patterned Paper:
I couldn’t wait to work with it, but with so many patterns on one sheet I wanted to make sure that my other design elements wouldn’t get lost, so take a look at what I’ve done…
I began by matting my photos first with patterned paper from the same collection and then with an outer layer of black cardstock. Darker colored cardstock for matting is a great way to ensure your photos pop. Another way I toned down the background was by blending some white Gesso with my finger where I knew I wanted the photos to go. I also anchored my paper with a strip of washi tape, and finally added embellishments behind and around my photos.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
