Once upon a time, my layout started with one sheet of paper and a pair of sharp scissors. The 'High Five' paper from Sunshine & Happiness was screaming chop me up! lol.
That is exactly what I did! Then I separated the colors and lined them into rainbow form.
Tucking them behind my photo was the challenge.
They keep moving on me! Using a wet fine tip adhesive helped lock them in place. I felt this color combo looked best on the amazing woodgrain paper 'Dig it" from Bloom & Grow.
For my second layout I pulled out the Life in Color collection.
YES! It is important to have fun in life and these two kids know how to do just that when they are together.
I loved the blacks and whites with the Life in Color collection. At first, I attempted to keep it black white and turquoise. That did not last long. Slowly red and yellow crept in, but I did keep those minimal. I think my favorite is the Expressions Sticker letters. Combining them can really make fun titles. I started this layout by cutting a big triangle out of the polka dot paper, raising it with foam tape and backing it with a basic white cardstock. I used the Washi Papers along the seams to help make the white on white pop a bit.
I think it is fun to play with paper and layer ephemera! What do you find fun?
