Hi there! I hope your week has been good so far!
As promised, here are 2 more layouts from NSD!
1st up: A layout using project life cards!
For this, I used cards from the Inked Rose Albums Made Easy Journaling Cards by We R Memory Keepers, embellishment and background paper from the Inked Rose paper pack, Heidi Swapp stamps, and sequins from Doodlebug. Since the paper already had ‘paint splatter’ on it, I didn’t want to add too much more stuff to it. I simply matted the photo, mixed and scattered some sequins and added the journaling about when and where the picture was taken. I didn’t add much more journaling since the cards said everything. I’m really liking using journaling cards meant for memory keeping for a layout as I get to showcase the cards I like the most. If you have journaling cards (whether from WRMK albums made easy or Project Life) which you really like, don’t keep it in a drawer! Showcase them on a layout!
Next, I wanted to try working with a black and white palate. Here goes!
For this layout, I used the Capture Life paper and stickers kit by Alison Kraft, Doodlebug sequins and Heidi Swapp alphas. It was quite challenging creating dimension and layers using just white, black and grey. However, at the same time, being only able to choose from such a select range of ‘colours’ meant that I saved lots of time not looking at the coloured items I had available.
I also decided to print the photo in black and white, although the first print was in full colour. It just didn’t quite look right in colour while the rest of the layout was in black, white and greys. The complicated background also meant that I didn’t have to use much more patterns in my layering (since that would simply have blended into the background) so it made it pretty simple to put together!
All in all, I had fun working with just black, white and greys (and silvers) so I’ll definitely be coming up with another one!
What about you? If you do give it a try, let me know how it goes!
