Hi everyone! It's Ashley, and I'm here today with a new layout using the November Legendary Life Crafted Kit! I love everything about this month's Kit, and I've got a 3-to-Inspire challenge for you, based on my layout!
Here are my 3-to-Inspire suggestions for creating your layout:
1. Use two different patterned papers
2. Layer embellishments over and behind your photo
3. Add texture with at least 3 different types of embellishments
When I am using more than one patterned paper, I usually like to pair a more subtle design with a bolder color or pattern. For this layout, I used the black & white diamond pattern on the left side of the layout and the teal grid pattern on the right side. I love the contrast this creates and it helps in deciding where I want to place my photo/photos, journaling and embellishments.
I really loved the embellishments that are included in the November LC Kit, so I wanted to use as many as possible. Since I had planned to use a photo that was the width of my patterned paper, I thought it would be fun to layer the embellishments over it and behind it. Using a larger photo, keeps the amount of embellishments from overwhelming it. Had I used a smaller photo, I would have gone with less embellishing.
One of my favorite techniques on a layout, is adding texture/dimension. There is always a great mix of embellishments in each month's LC Kit, that allows me to do this. I used ephemera pieces, enamel dots and puffy stickers on this layout to give it visual interest.
I hope you will try out my tips to inspire you to use your November Legendary LC Kit! And make sure you share it with us in the CTK Facebook group!
