Hello there friends! Zsoka here to share my new layout with you today.
I’ve used Kim Watson’s Joy Parade
I chose a background cut file and cut this a bit smaller than 12×12 because I wanted to add a border around it. I backed the file with 8 different patterned papers. Since the openings are quite small I used papers from the 6×6 paper pad, because the patterns are smaller and more visible. This process took a while, so I was watching some of my favourite TV shows while working on this :). Once done I glued the cut file on a 12×12 sheet of paper from the same collection. It’s got this ombre look to it and I loved the way that looked as a frame.
I chose 3 photos of my son and his best friend… aren’t they adorable? I love these two! I printed these photos in the same size as the big squares of the cut file and placed them in the middle (I knew I was going to do this, so I did NOT back the middle row!). I went with black and white photos because my background is very busy and I still wanted the photos to stand out. I layered some white tissue paper behind the photos to give them a lift and a bit of a bigger white border.
I encourage you to try using a mix of patterned papers for your background… it’s fun! You can always tame it with black and white photos and accents/borders to achieve a well balanced look.
Thank you for stopping by today! See you soon!
