Hey there friends! It's Aimee here with you today— bringing you this week's 3-to-inspire challenge. I chose to make a full page 8.5x11 layout but I think it will translate well to many different sizes. Let's get into the prompts!
1. create three distinct clusters
2. use strips of paper to anchor your clusters
3. use leaves or florals
So, as you can see I have created three distinct clusters that are separate from one another on the page and I have set them up almost in a staircase fashion if you will— I find that this draws your eye all around the layout. I cut pieces from the cut apart sheet that's available in the Flea Market Findings kit and rather than splitting them up into individual word phrases I left them altogether in a long strip to use as anchors to my clusters. I like that this creates a straight horizontal line under my photo and embellishments especially— this really helps to create perspective.
I added in some of the beautiful leaves from the Falling Leaves Die Cut Ephemera pack on top of my cut-aparts to really frame out this photo of my daughter and add a touch of Fall to the page. On the top of the page I tore my white cardstock and added a bit of beautiful blue ledger paper from the digital Basics & Ledgers 6x8 paper collection to pull some blue up near the top of the page.
At the bottom of the page I added a much shorter paper strip and decided to do some repeat stamping underneath using the Gratitude (Full Heart) Stamp set.
I love this soft, feminine spread and I think that this design would be super fun flipped vertically as well! i hope you enjoyed this week's prompts and I hope you give it a go! Happy creating! I'll catch you next time!
