Hi it's Sandy welcoming you to our July preview. Starting today our designers will be showcasing projects designed with the July Kits. I'm kicking things off with this travel-themed layout featuring papers from the Add-On Kit and embellishments from both the Main Kit and the Embellie Kit.
My starting point is this photo taken from a rickshaw in India. It's a busy picture so I print it quite large and put it on a 12"x12" page instead of my usual 8.5"x11" format. I layer pattern papers around the photo forming an L-shape. Then place a triangle 'shelf' on top for my title (chipboard travel words from my stash) to rest on.
Since this is a Monday post I have a Simple Strategy to share. When adhering vellum, such as these blue arrows, sewing them on is a great way to avoid glue showing through the paper. Sewing without too much tension in the thread allows you to create an effect of the vellum floating above your page.
If you recognise any supplies item on my layout make sure to leave your comments for your chance to win a $5 GC.
