S U P P L I E S :
I featured seven 3x4 photos on this two-page spread, and since they were colorful vacation shots, I didn't use a lot of patterns or competing colors. I kept the background neutral as well, dividing it in half horizontally with white and silver cardstock (and a thin black scallop border in between!) Some of the photos are matted with patterned papers to give just a hint of color.
In the upper left and lower right corners, I added repetitive stamping directly to the cardstock to serve two purposes: (1) to add interest to a rather stark background; and (2) to create a visual sight line that leads the eye diagonally through the layout by connecting two similar images. I love these little hashtags that come with the kit stamp set and know they'll be in regular use!
In the two empty spaces between photos, I added a printable tag (from the kit exclusives) and a 3x4 journal card, layering embellishments on both for texture They also add a nice pop of pink to my page, which ties directly to the colors in the photos.
Finally, I had some fun mixing several fonts and products to create a bold title. The acrylic word "spring" is one of three custom titles included in the kits; the word "break" is cut on my Cameo from the font Arial Black; and "MEXICO" is the puffy alpha included in the kit. A cluster of dies cuts, buttons and enamel dots complete the look.
