Today I'll be spending time with my family. Hopefully it will include some relaxing as it has been absolutely crazy around these parts as I gear up for the CHA-Summer tradeshow. No. I will not be attending. But I am helping Echo Park Paper prepare to go, and it is a LOT of work. It's going to be pretty fantastic, and I'm hoping they will have a great show. Here's a tiny sneek peak at one of their collections you'll spot at the show:
Meanwhile, I thought I'd share a 2Peas project I recently had go live at 2Peas. Be sure to check the gallery every Monday as the Garden Girls' projects are released weekly. This particular photo was a rare find. I was looking for something else and discovered this photo with my daughter looking on innocently, and my son mischieviously winking. Hilarious and very true to form. From there I built the page:
Here is a closeup of the layout. I can't remember the last time I used vellum, but I love the way it looks overlaying the patterned papers--so subtle and so pretty. (To see more photos of this layout be sure to check it out at 2Peas HERE!)
I think when you're using a sophisticated color scheme like the mustard yellow, leaf green, and rose red in this layout, it's a good idea to switch your photos to black and white. I darkened the final photo up a bit. I like a bold contrast in my photos. Some people like a more muted black and white photo. Not this girl--make mine dark and dramatic. LOL!
Below you will find the products I used to create this layout. I did some stamping on the mustard yellow pennant and incorporated several different lines to get the layout just where I wanted it.
