Hi there! I have a darling layout to share with you today created by Stephanie. She has such an ability to use lots of white and neutrals in a way that draws you right in! I LOVE how the greens in her photo really pop against the background in her layout! I also love how she created the textural background with the ruffled crepe paper, glitter tape and ribbon! It's simply gorgeous!
Hi there! Stephanie back with you today to share a fun way to add texture and depth to your backgrounds. If you have followed along with me over the last year or so, you probably know that I love a white blank canvas as my starting point. There's just something about starting from scratch and then layering on beautiful colors and papers to create a pretty page. Layering with materials other than paper can add a pop to your page, and that's what this today's layout is all about!
One of my new favorite new hobbies is sewing crepe paper (think party store crepe paper) to make ruffles. It really is so easy to do and it creates the most beautiful ruffles!! I use them for gift wrapping and decorations, and occasionally will add them to a page or mini album.
For this layout, I started with two strands of ruffled white crepe paper, some gold glitter tape and pretty pink ribbon. I layered them on my white card stock to act as the background for my photo and paper layers. The ribbon and crepe paper add so much depth and texture to this page and it really makes the photo pop from the background! As you can see above, I folded and crimped the gold glitter tape a little to give it more dimension, rather than placing it flat on my page.
My paper layers are kept simple with the Styleboard "I love you" script paper and a small "happy little moments" card. When choosing my layers, I kept in mind the colors of my background layers and tried to play off of those, being sure to add in some pink and gold.
I typed my journaling up on a piece of printer paper and then trimmed the lines out so I could add them around my page.
This butterfly tag was the perfect finish to my page! It has that perfect pop of gold to help accent the rest of the gold on my page!!
Thanks so much for joining me today!! I hope this layout has inspired you to start with a white background and add beautiful pops of colors and fun layers!!
