So, I am still creating away as a guest designer on the One Little Bird blog this month.
I created a layout in my TN with the Shutterbug collection by One Little Bird. One of the elements in the digital kit is this yellow strip of washi tape. I decided to print it out on vellum to give it more of a realistic look. Then I just adhered it with a strip of roller adhesive. I love that it has that transparent look of washi tape (even though it may not be very noticeable in this photo). I used the washi strip to underline my journaling, which I simply wrote by hand.
Two more favourite digital elements were the 'Captured' title and the cork banner. I just had to include those in this layout.
To pull everything together and connect the photo page with the journaling page, I covered just the bottom half of the background with this simple, yet eye-catching patterned paper.
Because my photos were long and slim, I also tried to echo that feel along the right side page.
In the end, I like the result!
And of course, using the Shutterbug collection by One Little Bird sure inspired this process!
