The first thing that really spoke to me on the layout was the banners so I decided to start with that. I placed the photos in the same position as the sketch and layered the first banner. Once I had that in there I decided to run with the banners theme.
The only big change I really made to the sketch was moving the title. I kept the band running through the center and found that it was a good place to let the title rest. I tore a long strip of silver washi tape in half and layered it on top of the border strip.
I have started journaling on vellum and then putting it on my layout. I really don't journal as much as I should because I am so scared I will make a mistake on the pattern paper and ruin all the hard work I have done.
This is a close up of the banners at the top. The banners felt like they needed to be softened up a bit so I layered some vellum on top of them. I have been using a lot of plain vellum on my layouts lately.
For the top left corner I stamped a Dear Lizzy Stamp that has the definition of summer on a piece of....you guessed it...Vellum and layered that with some silver Washi tape that given to me a while back. The kraft banner at the top says "Life is what you make it". So True.
The final thing I did was add a couple of loose
rhinestones bling to the page at a few spots to draw a little more attention to those areas. S
So there you have it. Hello Summer for the Scrap Your Story Challenge Blog. Take the sketch and play along. Me and the girls over there would love to see what you come up with.
