Today Layout featuring Family Stories by Dedra Long
The Family Stories Collection has a very unexpected color palette, at least for me. Pink, blues and oranges with some woodgrain thrown in for good measure. Phrases that are perfect for telling your stories for any family member. Girls, boys, grandparents, parents etc.
To bring the two photos together and make them more of a focal point I layered and overlapped two banners. I also took chipboard phrase stickers and paired them with the stamped "you are here" on the lower left and the stamped "hearts" in the upper right hand corner. Putting a piece of the chipboard stickers directly on the photo also draws your eye in, making the photos even more prominent. Adding the pink striped washi tape to the top and bottom of the layout balances the pink floral banner in the center.
On opposite sides of the photos I added sequins and enamel dots to move your eye up and down the layout. Layering buttons, brads, sequins, stamps and chipboard stickers will add texture, interest and dimension to your layouts.
Thanks for stopping by!
