Welcome to week seven.
I was running late with the layout this week so grabbed a picture and just got on with it.
It’s of Gav in our hotel room in Las Vegas – 2010.
Then I pulled out some cardstock and embellishments. At first I was going to go with black or grey for the background but I wanted to incorporate some yellow as the lamp in the picture is giving off bright yellow light.
Not sure where the American number plate cardstock came from but I thought it would look good with this picture.
I’m also trying to use the Tim Holtz tissue tape I love it but never get it onto layouts.
I placed the picture on the left side of the cardstock and thought I’d have my title over to the right. I then tried out several different combinations of patterned paper with the picture.
I liked the combination of all three papers. The stars the stripes and the damask.
I think because there are various ‘weights’ of pattern it works okay.
And the yellow paper really balances that bright yellow spot in the picture.
I didn’t use too many embellishments on this lo just the tissue tape the number plate strip and a label strip.
Here is the finished page with the hand written journaling.
The title is a sheet of 7 gypsies type keys, the oval charm is a Tim Holtz acrylic ornament. I stamped a Hero Arts swirl stamp in black on kraft cardstock then adhered it to the ornament with Glossy Accents and then attached a black brad. The soulmate sticker is from an October Afternoon sheet which is where the ‘3 day’ part of the title also came from.
I like it. The mix of papers, simple embellishment and a funny story.
