Here is a layout I have just finished using ONCE UPON A SKETCH and C.S.I for my inspiration. (See below).
For this one I used the sketch and all the colours from the scheme.
I used branches, birds, flowers, and newsprint from the evidence elements.
I did my journalling about how we would love to be on holiday every day, and the title Easy is from the Lionel Richie song of that name.
So - first of all I gathered up all my papers that fit the colour description and matted my photo.
I loved these colours as they really picked out the colours in the photo.
I then matted my newspaper print paper (freebie from C.S.I) and inked the edges.
I adhered this to my background paper, (My Minds Eye I think), and adhered my matted photo on top.
Then I used some card-stock using scalloped scissors for the backdrop.
I then started to add my flowers and other embellishments and used some journaling boxes from the freebies.
I added some journalling and some secret journalling on the side and hidden underneath.
I added some muslin and a gorjuss dewdrop bead (from the Scrap That kit for August), and added my title using some alphabet stickers.
