Welcome to week twelve. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far but I am so glad I keep plugging away and making a layout a week.
I selected five photos from a trip to New York for this week.
We just love the Staten Island ferry and I thought I cold tell that story. But when I pondered the photos I decided to leave out the Statue of Liberty photo as that thought it detracted from the story which was the ferry ride not the sights along the way. That said though kept in the view of Manhattan. Love it so.
I pulled out some papers and other goodies.
You can see that I cropped the photos and they fit nicely into a grid format.
I thought a strip of patterned paper would fit somewhere so I punched it ready for use.
Then I tried that strip of paper along with a green piece of Bazzil cardstock in two places on the layout to see which I liked best.
I went with the horizontal version but moved the photos up to the right edge of the paper.
I seem to have a thing going on with orange these days but I blame the colour of the ferry! I knew it was going to be clean and simple bit I needed a couple of extra elements and well as the title. I used a Jenni Bowlin journal block stamped onto a scrap of orange card.
You can see the second impression I made, which was really just to clean the stamp but I liked it better than the blacker image.
I also used a stamp for a circle accent. It’s from a Girls Paparie travel set. And I punched the circle out.
I adhered those accents and wrote my journaling and that was it. Simple, not too much going on but when the background paper is busy I think it still works out fine.
I placed the journaling block and the circle accent in a triangle around the photos. By putting the photos up against the edge of the paper it adds to the graphic quality I think.
There goes another week, another story.
Weekly Layout is a series of blog posts that I am doing every week in 2012. I am walking through the process of putting the page together with a bit of background to why I picked the design and embelishments for the page. I hope to develop my style and push myeslf by taking on this challenge. You can see previous weeks here.
