Hello everyone. Christin here with a layout with the wonderful Take Note Collection.
Back to school is usually in the fall so I used a lovely blue leafy background to go wiht the layout. Since the papers under the white leaves are so dark I wanted to keep the background much lighter.
I cut out one whole piece of the mat for the cutfile and didn’t adhere it completely to the white leaves giving it some extra dimemsion
It might not show much but this falls favorite book is Alice in Wonderland and sitting enjoying the book outside. I used mrag cards and library card pockets for my layers under the photo and even placed the photo inside a pocket.
The bookmarks are perfect too for layers. I only trimmed the ribbon slightly at the top.
I used the cork paper as a background to get an extra frame feeling and stitched all around the edge. It might be time consuming, but it gives the layout just a little bit extra. If I feel I need more contrast I add a dark color along the edge, but if I have enought contrast like in this layout I go for a much lighter color when picking thread.
