I have been doing a bit of creating for Off The Rails. I've found myself enjoying creating simpler layouts sometimes lately. I enjoy the fact that I can show off one or two features - plus my photo!
Here's the mood board for Off The Rails for June. At first I found the colours a bit daunting as they're not colours I would normally put together, however I soon realised that the tan colour could be interpreted as bronze and suddenly it all worked!
I was influenced by the colours of course, but also the concept of family as indicated by the paper dolls.
Here's my layout:
See what I mean about simple but effective? I feel that there is enough interest on this page to catch your eye but the focus is still on the photo.
Here's how I made it:
On a scrap piece of paper, paint the chipboard title with Pebeo Iridescent Copper paint then add copper Tinby Designs Metallic Melts to just the second word. Heat the Melts.
Add stamping, focusing on the area below and above the photo, plus some washi arrows.
Add flowers to the vine and some copper-painted diamonds to the background. Add the journaling along the long edge opposite the photo.
I hope you can join in our challenge this month!
