Here's my layout:
This was one tough layout to photograph! The foam stickers that make the title kept throwing shadows and the die cut transparencies reflect the light. I did the best I could! I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E the Basic Grey Highline collection. It's so vibrant! It's certainly not a collection that screams "Easter", but it worked really well for my two photos. :)
I started off with textured white cardstock from American Crafts and splattered a mix of two Heidi Swapp Color Shines, black Glitter Mist, and my own homemade ink mixing red and orange reinkers. Next I created the bottom border area mixing a couple of the patterned paper from Highline. To help it stand out, I added black machine stitching.
Next I chose the paper to mat my photos and inked the edges with black ink. Once I had the placement right, I adhered the back middle square and stitched around it just past where I knew the photos would cover it. Here's what it looked like before I added the matted photos:
Here's a close-up of the photo area with a foam heart sticker from the Amy Tangerine Plus One Twins Thickers. I backed the heart with contrasting paper to help it pop even more.
The title came together quickly, inspired by the Thickers!
And the top left corner seemed a little bare to me, so I added a triangle corner and stitched along the long side. And I knew I had to use the "Love this" transparency! So I added it and stitched along the top and bottom there, too. I love how the splatters show through!
I hope you are inspired by the bold - it's okay to scrap non-Thanksgiving, non-autumn, or non-Christmas things even in November!
Here's another layout using Highline for more inspiration.
Make it a chocolaty, happy, scrappy day!
