A neat trick to unify the elements on your layout! :)



Sweetheart

Sometimes, mimicking parts of a photo can be a neat design trick to unify all the elements on your layout. I love these photos of the newly-weds with the bride holding a lace parasol and a cascading waterfall in the background. [photos: Mr & Mrs Issac]


Here's what I did:

1. Used patterned paper with subtle hints of light blue in the background.
2. Overlayed the patterned paper with white tulle.
3. Added a strip of lace.
4. Adhered a blue cocktail umbrella [mimicks the bride's parasol].
5. Added chipboard, stickers and some flying birds!

What do you think? So totally doable right?

Supplies: American Crafts stickers, SRM stickers, Sam & Lucy stickers, Gauche Alchemy Blue Streak Mixed Media Color Kit.

P/s: Have a fabulous weekend friends! Don't forget to enter my blogoversary giveaway! :)
