So, I posted a few days ago about using bold pops on a page and how it can make an impact! Well, the word "bold" found its way into my thoughts. I couldn't help but to repeat that word and dream up other ideas based on it. Call it a game of association.
I found myself thinking of the word when I went to scrap the photo on the layout below. It is of my daughter wearing a full purple outfit...head to toe, boots and all. I am no Rachel Zoe, but I would say that a little contrast or neutral would do her good. I will be forgiving though, since she is only five.
She didn't think twice of wearing all that purple, a hue that makes a statement. Never mind that one piece of said clothing is a fluffy tutu. We went to the grocery store and Target. She pranced around BOLDLY, with confidence. She wore it well.
I knew the layout for this photo should be bold as well. Hence, the title. I am in love with the purple in the Fabrications collection. I had to use little pops to compliment her outfit.
It is an easy design to recreate. I used a cream cardstock as a neutral base. I added the thick purple strip along the side. A smaller strip of blue and the block of the floral add layers. I topped it with the scalloped border from the die-cuts.
Here are the details for creating the title cluster:
I placed a tag die-cut under the strips and placed the ornate circle on top to match the circles along the right side of the layout. Another die-cut border gives the title a resting place.
I wanted to add some whimsy and fun along the side so I went with circles. I simply punched a bunch of different sized circles and mixed in some of Teresa's die-cut circles. I layered that heart and the phrase sticker. To finish it off, I placed several pieces of bling.
Finally, for one more detail, I added the photo corner. It visually stops the circles and keeps the eye near the title and words. I created the photo corner myself. To see how, look below.
I wanted a layout to match the tones and feel of my daughter's outfit. I wanted patterns as bold and vibrant as she is!
I wonder where that word will bring me next...
