Hi guys, Ive just finished this layout using blue! I hardly ever use blue, but with Jessie in a blue school uniform I think it was a must. Ive not used a sketch here as I just wanted to do lots of layering and distressing. Ive used my new distressing tool a Zutter distress- it and it creates wonderful edges which I couldnt wait to play with. So here's what I did. First of all I chose all the papers, these happen to be the only blue I had in my stash which are from Basic Grey - Granola. I then distressed all the edges with my new toy. Great fun if a little messy. Then I matted my photo onto some blue cardstock and chose some doilys! I continued to mat and layer all the papers until I liked the result and glued them into position. I found some typed paper that I liked the colour of to add in the corners and I inked the edges. I added some flowers and branches, the title and some bling. This layout didnt take long at all, it all came together very quickly I think because all the papers matched and I didnt have to hunt out matching ones. I then planted the whole thing onto a peice of browny paper that toned in. Why not give it a go?
