Guessing Game #10 Tuesday Tutorial with Our Guest Designer
Susan here to share with you a tutorial. When creating this fun MAIN KIT ONLY layout, I began by measuring the openings to each photo frame within the patterned paper. Then I created a contact sheet of favorite Instagram images using Photoshop Elements 10.0. (This is just the program I used, but I am sure other photo-editing software have a similar feature available).
I placed patterned paper behind the "love you" veneer and eyed up where to stamp the heart images so that they would appear in the openings of each letter "o". I stamped the hearts with Prima Chalk Ink (Farmer Jeans *non-kit item) and adhered it to the wood veneer, trimming off the excess patterned paper.
I then grabbed an Instagram logo image from the internet, saved it to my desktop, and sized it down to the dimensions I wanted in Photoshop Elements, printed it out on plain white card stock, trimmed it out, and adhered it to my page with 3D foam adhesive.
This was a really fun layout to make as it allowed me to get a bunch of photographs of our year documented on one page! Please leave any questions you might have below in the comment section as I will be happy to answer them. :)
